Tigerfish angling can be enjoyed throughout the year and bream angling from late May to the end of December. Island View is host to the International Zambezi Classic Open angling challenge - the single biggest angling competition in Southern Central Africa.

Our well-maintained fleet of boats can be hired on an hourly, half-day, or full day basis. All boats are hired with an experienced professional guide to assist and advise on the best angling method, bait selection, and locations to fish.

The campsite is beautiful but stands are not well drained but opportunity to fish is good. However, the ladies ablution blocks are sub standard and the men's are not cleaned regularly.

We were charged R700.00 for two people to fish for 3 hours plus R252.00 for petrol used even though using our own fishing gear. The boat was taken out approximately 750 m from Island View where it the engine was put off. The boys were charged R60 for a whole briem, using a 30cm x 4 cm strip of it. Upon asking if they could have the rest of the briem they were told no, it will be used for other fisherman as well at the same charge. I felt ripped off to say the least. No firewood, charcoal or even ice is stocked while the venue is 35km from the nearest town Katimo Malilo. I had to drive to Katimo to buy firewood and ice.

I paid R450 for 3 hours fishing for the 2 boys on Zambezi at a 5 star lodge two days later, with friendly assistance and guidance.

Very beautiful campsite with private ablution. Clean with lots of hot water for showers! Very friendly and helpful staff. Thank you for excellent service and a memorable experience!

Excellent fishing area

30 June 2014

We found the camp site to be very average. The ablution facilities were clean. The basins all blocked up. We stayed in much nicer campsites the whole way along the Caprivi Strip. The fishing was great.

Thanks a lot for the excellent time we had by you guys. See you soon!
