Kwamashi Floodplain Tiger Fishing Safari

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.

Sioma Tiger Fishing

Sioma Fishing Safari – 6 Day

The Sioma Fishing Safari is available for 6 – 10 people during set dates from August to December and takes place in Barotseland but not on the Barotse floodplains. 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.

Day 1: Livingstone – Mutemwa Lodge
Arrival Mmtemwa Lodge, Upper ZambeziI
The Upper Zambezi River, where Mutemwa Lodge is located is wide and very beautiful. Mutemwa has almost exclusive
access to about 30 – 60km of this piece of the Upper Zambezi and the water is varied with islands, rapids and deep drop offs.
This part of the river is known for fantastic birding and great tiger fishing with a wonderful variety of fish species on offer.
Upon arrival at Mutemwa Lodge, you will have a chance to unpack and settle into your tents before joining the guides for a
short fishing session on the Upper Zambezi

Day 2 – 5: Mutemwa Lodge – Sioma Falls SIOMA FALLS, UPPER ZAMBEZI Sioma Falls is 70kms upriver from Mutemwa Lodge and is the second largest waterfall on the Zambezi river. Here, the Zambezi is narrow and has deep fast flowing water, with cascading rapids and lots of black volcanic rock. 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. There are some very deep channels and some excellent runs to fish for the large and aggressive tigerfish that lurk in these waters. Packed lunches and coolboxes are supplied.
Day 5 & 6: Mutemwa Lodge – Livingstone FINAL DAY & DEPARTURE After breakfast, you will head out with the boats again for the fishing journey downstream back to Mutemwa Lodge from the Sioma Falls.
