Sioma Fishing Safari - Overview

A tiger fishing adventure on the Upper Zambezi and Sioma Falls

The Sioma Fishing Safari is available for 6 - 10 people anytime from August to December and takes place in Barotseland but not on the Barotse floodplains. It begins with 1 or 2 nights at Mutemwa Lodge before you set 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 Mutemwa for the last night.
