FISHING (BOAT HIRE)
We have a fleet of boats which can be hired with trained guides for anything from a few hours sightseeing, transfers or a half as well as a full day of fishing.
Sunset cruises depart the lodge at 4pm, and will take you up and downstream to view the late afternoon activities of animals that call the Zambezi their home. From bushbuck and waterbuck, to elephants coming down to the water to drink and play, hippos wallowing and crocs cruising in the river – even lions and buffalo sunning themselves on the banks of the river. The Zambezi at sunset is truly an amazing, enchanting experience. You will arrive back at the lodge just after sunset – around 6pm to 6.30pm depending on the time of year.
For those with an interest in birds, all our activities offer the opportunity to spot one of the 378 bird species in the Lower Zambezi Valley – Saddle billed Stork, White-fronted bee-eater, Western-banded Snake eagle, Eastern Nicator and the African Skimmer to name a few. For those avid birders, who are in search of something special, we offer guided birding walks or boat tours at select times of the year. Sought after species during our green season include the African Pitta, Livingstone’s flycatcher and African broadbill. We also welcome back the migratory birds such as the Broad-billed Roller, Collared Pratincole and Southern Carmine Bee-eater.
