Fishing

     

Mvuu lies in the heart of a prime stretch of the river that offers exceptional fishing.  Trophy Tiger of up to 9kg have been landed and recorded here, and many people have achieved their personal best angling this area of the lower Zambezi.  

The waters surrounding Mvuu are varied, from long sand beds, to shallow flood plains and deep rocky pools. Because of this, other species such as Bream, Chessa, Nkupi, and the legendary Vundu, are also prolific.

A typical angling day at Mvuu begins at dawn, with the boats equipped and guides ready to take you to the prime spots.  If Tiger fishing is on the agenda, then a short stop to catch bait fish, such as Chessa, will be the first call of the day.  Morning angling sessions normally last until about 10am, at which time we return to camp for brunch and refreshments.  Afternoon sessions commence at 3pm once the midday heat has passed, and carry on until sunset when you can toast to your days’ success with a sundowner, whilst floating down the magnificent river.  Fishing is normally broken up into early morning and / or afternoon sessions, but it can also be organised as a full day activity.
