Fishing for Tigers at Chobe Savanna Lodge Fishing methods vary, with lure fishing being the predominant method used. The large bream species like the nembwe's (olive bream), thin faced largemouth, humpback largemouths and three-spots breams take artificials readily.
You can also take earthworms and probe the lesser-known backwaters and lilly padded lagoons in search of the many vegetarian species of bream like the green head and pink happy's, which attain fairly large sizes and put up a good fight.
Our main quarries here are the numerous large colourful bream species, catfish, pike and the elusive tiger fish which is world renowned for it's fierce fighting capabilities and has earned the reputation of being one of the world's toughest freshwater fish to subdue, a true acrobat taking long runs throwing it's body out of the water shaking its head endlessly trying to dislodge any hook that comes into contact with it's bony jaws, with the lodges' record standing at 16,5lbs, larger fish have been seen.The lodge has a number of boats for hire with experienced fishing and bird guides, who have extensive knowledge of the area. Fishing tackle can be arranged at the lodge on request, but you are advised that it is always better to bring your own gear.
