 Fish-On-Safaris offers all its guests a safe, secure African experience under the personal supervision of an experienced Zambezi guide. These fishing excursions are offered ten months of the year (June and July are excluded). Those wanting to take the challenge of the Zambezi Tiger should look to the spring season – September, October and November.
Guests will be accommodated at Island View Lodge, which is situated along the Eastern Caprivi upstream from Victoria Falls. This stretch of the upper Zambezi is well known for its excellent Tiger and Bream fishing, as well as its overflowing abundance of fauna and flora. Bird watching along this stretch is particularly exciting, with frequent Heron, Vulture and Eagle sightings being made.
After arriving at your private riverside lodge and settling in, an experienced Zambezi angler will brief you on the local river system, and the arcane art of Tiger fishing.

To avoid the heat of the African day, angling excursions are at daybreak and the late afternoon. Each morning after some coffee and rusks, fisherman can expect to hit the water, rods in hand, for a couple of hours of exciting fishing along the mighty Zambezi River. Fishing is from 5 meter boats, designed to meet the local conditions, with the maximum of three anglers per boat.
