The tiger fish, considered by many to be one of the finest game fish around have flourished in the rich waters of the lake. The largest average weight caught in competition is over 10kgs , but the speed, courage and strength of the tigerfish make it a worthy opponent for the skilful angler.
Lake Kariba is the tiger fising mecca and the only venue where you will bag the big ones.
Bream (Tilapia) are also plentyful in the lake and also make for good angling and eating.
Australian Yabbies (Crayfish) can now also be caught in the lake.
A large variety of game can be seen from a houseboat which include:
Elephant, Hippo, Rhino, Crocodile, Buffalo, Impala, Waterbuck, Turtles, Fish Eagle, Lions, Cheetah and Leopards.
Photographers have an opportunity to capture awesome images of the wildlife, scenery of the surrounding mountains, reflections of trees off the water and magnificent sunsets.
A huge variety of birds which will excite bird lovers
The keyword on a houseboat is “relaxation”.
There is nothing on this earth as relaxing as sitting on a deck at sunset sipping a sundowner and watching the African day go by.
Rising each morning in your own time to the sound of a Fish Eagle and enjoying brunch on deck whilst viewing game.
