Fishing on the Zambezi River - Rest on the river

Setting out from Livingstone by boat with your fishing guide, you'll find some of the calmer sections and swirling eddies of the Zambezi River before casting your line. There are over 75 species that make this section of the river their home, but the prized species is the predatory tiger fish, a lean and powerful species with alarming teeth and striped black and silver scales, capable of reaching weights of up to 15kg. This ferocious fish puts up a strong fight, but is incredibly satisfying to land in your boat.

Other species that are often caught are yellow bream and vundu, a species of catfish that can reach over 40kg.

Spinning with artificial lures is the most common method used on these trips, and is the most efficient method for catching tigers and bream, although bottom fishing and drift bait methods are sometimes used.Hi!
