There are few places in the world more exciting to try your hand at fishing whether you are a novice or fly-fishing veteran.  Bobbing in silence on the Kwando River in your boat, watching the hippos watching you, and waiting for your next bite is a wonderful way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Species that are targeted by sports fisherman are several tilapia (bream) species (including the olive bream or nembwe, red breasted tilapia, purple faced largemouth and three spot tilapia), sharp tooth catfish, African pike and the mighty Tiger fish.

The Okavango is recognised as an excellent fishing destination for both fly fishing and traditional spin fishing. However, not many people are aware of the amazing fishing that can also be experienced on the Kwando River.  Most of the Linyanti area lodges offer some form of fishing, with basic rods and reels provided.  If you want to do some fly fishing [cont.]

you will likely need to bring your own gear, but do ask us first.

Due to government regulations, fishing is not possible during the months of January and February as this is a closed season.
