Fishing in the Panhandle of the Okavango Delta

What is this safari about?

Comprising a three or four night stay at Nxamaseri Island Lodge, this safari offers a unique African fishing experience on an island in the permanent waters of the Okavango Delta.

The small, exclusive lodge has a distinguished fishing history and the area boasts a wide variety of fishing opportunities – with something to suit every fishing enthusiast. From March to November the area is a prime location for lure fishing for Tiger Fish, in summer the Barbel run is especially good and fly fishing enthusiasts will benefit from specialist guides who are always on hand to help. Another eight fish species can be caught in these waters making for some memorable experiences.

The lodge is located in indigenous forest, and has seven secluded double ensuite chalets and two tree houses, each with a private deck overlooking the water.

What Extensions do you recommend?

For the fishing enthusiast, an extension to fish on the upper reaches of the Zambezi makes for a great addition to your journey.
