African Safari Fishing Trips, Fishing Safari Tours the Best Times to do Fishing safaris
On the Lower and Upper Zambezi the months of May, June and July are best using lure and feather.
By May the river has reached its highest level over the floodplains and starts to empty into its main channel.
Mid January on the floodplains sees such species as barbs and bream feeding and breeding.
Before the water levels drop they must make their way into the main channel.
The Tiger fish, and other predatory fish such as the Nembwe, Bream and sharp tooth Catfish, feed on these “baitfish”.
In June there is a mass exodus of these baitfish, moving down stream to areas of more cover and structure. This movement causes “bait balls” to be formed and they separate from the safety of the clay bank edges and move out into deeper waters.
As the water level drop from August to November, so the targeting of shallow water tigers becomes more of a reality from the confines of wooden dugout Mokoro.
This is truly the most natural way of fishing for tiger fish, also lending itself to great bird watching and the feeling of really being one with the river.
By the end of November the rainy season starts, and water levels start to steadily rise again, bringing with it dirty water and an end to fly fishing the Zambezi

Fishing safari tours in South Africa from ZAR 250p/p
South Africa is blessed with a coastline almost 3 000 kilometers long, and numerous dams, lakes, rivers and streams, South Africa has plenty to offer the fishing enthusiast. From game fish in two oceans to trout in mountain streams, there is something to challenge and entertain everyone.
Many of South Africa's prime fishing spots offer not only good fishing, but also include some of the most beautiful places in a country blessed by Mother Nature.
African Safari Fishing Trips in Deep sea charters
Deep sea charters are available from ports along the coastline, which is shared by both the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, as well as the cold Benguela and warm Agulhas currents, bringing with them a wide variety of species.
Almost 15 percent of all known coastal marine species are found on the South African coast.
Big fish that one will encounter at sea include barracuda, sailfish and tuna. Take note that permits are required for ocean fishing.
Trout Fishing in Mountains and dams
The gentle art of fly fishing is popular in South Africa, with three areas especially recognized for their bountiful offerings: the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands, Mpumalanga province, and the Eastern Cape. All three regions boast sizeable mountain ranges; it is in their mountain streams that Trout flourish.
Some of these areas can be accessed only with 4x4 vehicles. The up-side of this is that they retain their natural beauty, being somewhat isolated.
For those that find fishing in rivers or off river banks too difficult, there are plenty of well-stocked dams to offer an enjoyable challenge.
Both brown and rainbow trout are to be found, though seldom together.
The South African trout season starts in September and finishes at the end of May. The best times for fly-fishing are in September and October, and then in April and May. However, many of the country's dams and lakes have no closed season.
Bass and carp Fishing Trips
For some, bass fishing is the way to go. The bass is an intelligent and thus challenging fish, while being hardy too. This makes it a very adaptable fish, to be found far and wide, and partial to a wide variety of bait.
Carp fishing also has its supporters. Like bass, carp were originally imported into South Africa, and offer an excellent challenge. They also grow to some pretty amazing sizes.
Catch and release is encouraged for both bass
