Zambezi Fishing

Imbabala is situated on the famous Zambezi River only 70 kilometres upriver from the Victoria Falls on the Kazungula flood plains at the confluence of the Chobe and Zambezi rivers.

Imbabala is the only fishing and photographic lodge on this 14km section of the Zambezi river and has near exclusivity of the Zambezi between the Katombora rapids and the Botswana/Namibian borders.

Imbabala has for many years produced excellent angling for the legendary tigerfish, which is rated as one of the best fighting fresh water fish in the world, a reputation it fully deserves. One of the attractions lies in the fact that only around 30 % of those hooked are ever landed. The majority of tigers caught range between 2 – 6 lb. but fish of double-figures are not uncommon in these waters and each season specimens of between 10 and 18 lb. are landed.
