Kwamashi Floodplain Tiger Fishing Safari

Kwamashi Floodplain Tiger Fishing Safari – 6 Day

 

Running for the first time in October, this untapped fishery in Western Zambia has produced some of our best Bream as well as great Tiger fish on light tackle.

Day 1: Mutemwa Lodge – Sinjambela
Arrival in the Kwamashi Floodplains
The Kwamashi fishing safari takes place on the Kwando River – located in the south western region of
Barotseland. Groups of 8 people will be collected from Mutemwa Airstrip (can be reached through flights
from Livingstone OR Lanseria) and driven by road through the Sioma Ngwezi National Park. Alternatively,
self drive is possible from the route above.
Accommodation will be in mobile safari camps which are built up from scratch every year and then broken
down completely at the end of the season. Each angler will have their own 3m x 3m bow tent with a proper
bed, linen, towelling, bedside tables and solar lanterns. The 2 ablution blocks are equipped with hot water,
high pressure showers, sinks and flushing toilets. We dine beneath the stars and trees and our “lounge”
remains the ring of comfy lounge safari chairs around the roaring fire looking over the floodplain.
Day 2 – 5 : Kwamashi Floodplains
A typical day on the Kwando River R
Early morning coffee around the campfire as the Hornbills leave their floodplain roosting spots is
enjoyed before you get on the boats (loaded with ice cold drinks and packed lunches) and head onto the main
channel of the Kwando river. Your guide will then find a promising bend and you can start drifting silently
fishing towards the structure or work a quiet backwater for bream. Groups can either return for brunch and a
snooze or enjoy a full day exploring this wonderful fishing wilderness and untouched waters accompanied
by numerous different bird species. We return to camp before last light, enjoy showers and dinner beneath
the African stars.

It begins with 1 or 2 nights at Mutemwa Lodge before you set off upriver fishing all day to the Sioma Falls (the second largest Falls on the Zambezi). Whilst you are fishing upriver, we drive around and setup a mobile safari camp on a remote beach below the falls where you spend the next 2 or 3 nights fishing the deep gorge water for the large tigers lurking below. You will then fish all the way back down to Mutemwa for the last night.

The fishing at Sioma Falls is excellent and you stand a good chance of catching a big tiger. The camp overlooks an expanse of “coral white” beach and the basalt black cliffs which harness the mighty Zambezi River. Your day of fishing to the Sioma Falls starts this morning. Fishing the deep channels and rapids all the way from Mutemwa Lodge, through the Top and Kaale Rapids to a beach below the Sioma Falls.

Orange River Fly Fishing

Orange River Fly Fishing

Orange River Fly Fishing

The Orange River below Vanderkloofdam is one of South Africa’s best kept secrets when it comes to fly-fishing for smallmouth and largemouth yellowfish. The spectacular Orange River is generally regarded as the premier destination for the avid yellowfish Fly-fisherman and this section is arguably the best section of the river. With over 70kms of private river access along the untouched banks of the Orange River, turquoise clear water, plenty of shallow rapids, long slow glides and big pools, the river offers everything the fly-fisherman could ask for, whether it is a trophy largemouth, a smallmouth sipping dryflys in crystal clear water or nymphing for smallmouth in the rapids, the angler will not be disappointed. The solitude mind-blowing fishing is what makes it South Africa’s flagship fly-fishing experience.

Kwando Tigerfishing Safari (4 Nights)

The four night Kwando Tigerfishing Safari in Western Zambia offers fishermen a rare opportunity–to fish in new and unchartered waters. The river, which forms the border between Angola and Zambia, offers great fishing with lures and fly as the wild waters ensure constant action. This means that bait fishermen and trolling anglers will have to adjust their techniques and experiment to catch the various species present which boast large bream as well as feisty tigerfish.

.

Each day is designed for guests to get the most out of their fishing safari experience. The day begins with a hot drink overlooking the expansive Kwando floodplain that stretches out beyond you. Guests then board the boats that are packed with lunch and cold beverages and steered by an experienced guide. The boats head towards the main area of the Kwando where the guides will locate a promising bend or head to quiet backwaters for bream. The experience begins from the moment guests are on the river, right until the roar of the boats’ motors calm and the first lure and fly are cast into the waters.

After a satisfying morning on the river, groups can either return to the camp for brunch and a dreamy nap, or enjoy an entire day on the boat, exploring the untouched beauty and sporty fishing that this location has to offer. Finally, groups return to the camp before sundown and rinse off the day’s adventure under hot high pressure showers before enjoying dinner under the illuminated African night sky.

The four night Kwando tiger fishing safari includes accommodation (single or sharing), all meals, hot beverages and filtered water, laundry, unlimited guided fishing and unlimited fuel and tackle, with the use of four boats.
