Brief Safari Overview

The Sioma Fishing Safari is available for 6 - 10 people during set dates from August to December and takes place in Barotseland but not on the Barotse floodplains. It begins with 1 or 2 nights at Mutemwa Lodge before you set off upriver fishing all day to the Sioma Falls (the second largest Falls on the Zambezi). Whilst you are fishing upriver, we drive around and setup a mobile safari camp on a remote beach below the falls where you spend the next 2 or 3 nights fishing the deep gorge water for the large tigers lurking below. You will then fish all the way back down to Mutemwa for the last night.

Mutemwa Lodge

The Upper Zambezi River, where Mutemwa Lodge is located is wide and very beautiful. Mutemwa has almost exclusive access to about 30 - 60km of this piece of the Upper Zambezi and the water is varied with islands, rapids and deep drop offs. This part of the river is known for fantastic birding and great tiger fishing with a wonderful variety of fish species on offer. Upon arrival at Mutemwa Lodge, you will have a chance to unpack and settle into your tents before joining the guides for a short fishing session on the Upper Zambezi

Day 2 – 5

Sioma Falls Mobile Camp

Sioma Falls is 70kms upriver from Mutemwa Lodge and is the second largest waterfall on the Zambezi river. Here, the Zambezi is narrow and has deep fast flowing water, with cascading rapids and lots of black volcanic rock. The fishing at Sioma Falls is excellent and you stand a good chance of catching a big tiger. The camp overlooks an expanse of “coral white” beach and the basalt black cliffs which harness the mighty Zambezi River.

Departure Day

After breakfast, you will head out with the boats again for the fishing journey downstream back to Mutemwa Lodge from the Sioma Falls. Fish those great spots that hit on the way up and then arrive in the late afternoon, where you will have a chance to shower and freshen up at the lodge before enjoying your last evening on the Mutemwa deck and boma.
