There are masses of options for fishermen of all interests, with testing fly-fishing on the Zambezi
and from the islands of Mozambique
, and lots of deep sea action for pulling in some serious kgs. Dedicated fishermen should look to Zambia
, and rest assured that all of these provide great safari possibilities for non-fishing travelling partners!
The best places for fishing in Africa:
The Lower Zambezi – Where there is water, there is fish! If you are a serious fisherman, there is nowhere more exciting than trip to the Lower Zambezi. Tiger fishing here is seriously good and the beauty of this is, you don’t have to leave a safari to enjoy this!
Mozambique – Deep sea fishing off Mozambique is really incredible. Unlike the popular islands a bit more far flung, you can enjoy a really off the beaten track fishing and beach experience here – it is not too well known, but is seriously good!
Zimbabwe – Lake Kariba in is the place to go for tiger fish if you find yourself in Zimbabwe. It is actually one of the world’s biggest manmade lakes, and the life in and out of the water is phenomenal. A great option for keen fisherman of all levels.
