Welcome to Barotse Tiger Camp
Established in May 2008, offering fishing enthusiasts and guest’s unparalleled guided Tiger fishing adventures in one of the most pristine and remote freshwater fishing locations on earth.
Hidden within the upper reaches of the mighty Zambezi’s 15 000 km2 Barotse Flood plain, this unique setting is nestled within a secluded paradise of lush bush land and untouched river waters teeming with trophy Barotse tiger fish as well as several species of bream. The extremely abundant eco-system exists due to the remoteness of Barotseland, which forms part of the Kingdom of the Lozi and is situated in western Zambia, stretching along the length of the Zambezi River from the Caprivi Strip to the Southern border of Angola.
“This fascination derives from the nature of these strange and terrible creatures, capable of increadible speed and power when they swim and leap, revealing their indescribable beauty only to those who fish them, creating a sudden bond, imparting the sensation of sheer speed and savage power.” Ernest Hemingway.
The Barotse Tiger Camp rests gracefully upon the eastern bank of the magnificent Zambezi River, opposite the Liuwa Plains National Park, within a picturesque bush setting.
Larger fish prefer to roam the middle of the river ambushing their prey on and around the drop offs. To target these fish we drift the middle of the river and search for these drop offs and areas where current changes such as eddies and structure are found. We have found that a depth of between 3m and 6m with a drop of half a meter or more yields the best results.
