This remote fishing location was opened in December of 2016. If you are interested in a 5 star resort, this is not a trip for you. If you are interested in catching trophy class tiger fish on a daily basis, then you need to “wet your line here!”
Camp is set on the banks of the Zambezi River in the mountains approximately 3 hours’ drive from the city of Tete, in the Tete Province of Mozambique. The camp is located right in the heart of the infamous Kebrabassa Rapids. The famous African explorer, David Livingstone, believed for many years that the Zambezi River was navigable and could open the interior of the continent to traders. After a six year campaign to navigate the lower Zambezi River, Mr. Livingstone and his team arrived at the Kebrabassa Rapids. Plans were to dynamite sections of the rapids creating a way to pass through the rapids by boat. Mr. Livingstone and crew came to accept the fact that no boat of any kind, at any time of the year, could navigate these waters. Mr. Livingstone named the mountain at the rapids Mount Stephanie after the young Portuguese Queen at the time. It was with a shattered spirit Mr. Livingstone returned to Tete and continued on to explore the Shire River. Today you can be thankful that back in 1851 the Kebrabassa Rapids halted those explorations and saved this pristine area and its tiger fishing for us to enjoy.
There are daily flights from Johannesburg, South Africa to Tete, Mozambique. These flights are approximately 2 hours from lift off to touch down. On arrival in Tete you will be met by a company representative who will transport your group in a comfortable, open air game viewing land cruiser. There will be a cooler filled with ice cold beverages of your choice. Enjoy the scenery and a cold 2M…the best beer in Africa! The drive from Tete to camp is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes.
This is a strict catch and release area. *Please note* no treble hooks allowed. The exclusive fishing area stretches for 70 km of untamed waters. We offer both conventional and fly fishing. There are no other fishing camps on this entire section of water. Guests can expect to catch an average of 6 to 20 tigerfish between 6 and 12 pounds daily with larger fish up to 22 pounds having been caught. The best time to fish is in September through May. However, we catch trophy fish in June, July and August.
Wake up call is 5:00 AM with coffee and tea brewing. Help yourself to the breakfast bar that has cereals, rusk and fruit available. On the water by 5:40 AM. Fish all morning returning for brunch at 11:00 AM. After brunch you can cast from the bank, pack a bag and go fishing by foot, or kick back and enjoy an afternoon snooze. The afternoon’s fishing normally starts at 2:30 PM. Due to safely navigating the river, you will be back in camp at sunset.
