Tiger are considered the prime big game fish but the river also offers great fishing for tasty bream, the abundant chessa and the old man of the river, the vundu! The best months for angling are September through to November and March through to June, however due to the high temperatures experienced in the Zambezi Valley, fishing is virtually a year round past-time!
