The Zambezi is famous for one of the great freshwater game fish.
The Tiger fish. Spending up to 3hours in the water trying to catch the powerful, swift predators Tiger fish, a thrill to catch and require a great deal of fishing skill with a good river specimen weighing over 15 lbs. Bream, or Tilapia, also live in large numbers in the river and although they don't fight quite as aggressively as the Tiger, a good 5 lb. fish will quickly snap light tackle given half the chance. Spinners and lures are the most common method of catching these fish although using light tackle, a fly and a fly-rod is becoming very popular and brings an extra dimension to a very exciting sport. Pick up times will be early morning at 06.00hrs or 15.00hrs for the afternoon
