An overview of the Sioma Barotse Fishing Safari Package
This safari takes place in Barotseland,Western Zambia. It begins with 1 or 2 nights at a lodge before setting 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 the lodge for the last night. This trip covers 80km of the Zambezi River and offers an incredibly wide range of water – islands, drop offs, deep channels, riffles, big rapids and eddies! This means that guys who want to troll, cast spoons or jigs, throw flies or even drift a fillet can all do so knowing that they are in for a great chance of connecting with the large tiger fish that live in this stretch of river.
