Fishing Safari Overview
As much as exploring remote fisheries in the middle of nowhere is amazing, sometimes what you really need is a great fishing fix and you need it quickly. The Upper Zambezi and Chobe fisheries provide that with their accessibility to major airports and short to medium length road transfers to get you fishing. However, in keeping with our ethos of offering authentic and quality trips, we have still been selective in choosing our Upper Zambezi trips and the below is one option (of 2 Upper Zambezi options) which in our opinion, are the best on offer.
What you will love about this trip:
Quality & Variety
You’ll appreciate the service of a quality lodge and access to a variety of water fished with bait, fly or lure depending on the season.
Wildlife & Fishing Combo
You’ll love the fact that you can see game whilst fishing OR that your non-fishing partner can enjoy game viewing cruises whilst you fish
You’ll love fishing trips that are easy to access where you can be fishing on the first afternoon after a short flight.
Where does it take place?
Your Chobe & Upper Zambezi Fishing Safari will take place at Ichinog Chobe River Lodge. To get here you, you will catch a flight to Kasane (not included in this package) where you will be met by our representatives and transferred by road and boat to Ichingo Chobe River Lodge where you will spend the next 4 or 5 nights experiencing the best in Chobe and Upper Zambezi tiger fishing and hospitality.
A great spot for lures, fly fishing and drifting bulldogs, we find the Ichingo waters fish their best in May, June, July and August when the annual Caprivi floodplains are receding and the baitfish are being washed back into the main channels. Fishing 2 per boat with access to excellent water and a variety of structure, the fishing around Ichingo is highly recommended. Nembwe are also caught from time to time in this region and for thos who want a break from the fishing, a water based game viewing cruise on the Chobe River usually guarantees great wildlife sightings.
This trip is available between February – December
