Kabula grows on you Louis Kotzee, South Africa
08 October 2009
This was our first Zambian and tiger fishing experience. We enjoyed it thoroughly, especially the days on the Zambezi and some successful fishing with grunting hippo's around us. The locals (west-Zambians) are friendly and not spoiled by too much tourism.
The lodge is well kept and visitors are well received by the friendly staff. Our guide and boatman - Freddy - proved to be up to the task of leading us to the catch. No electricity - but that is excellent if you want an African experience. According to my research, the lodge is probably also the most affordable tiger fishing destination.
Some pointers to other eventual visitors - have enough ZARands with you - it goes a long way in Zambia if you are not a Zambian. The same at the lodge. Next pointer - the road from Sesheke to the lodge definitely requires high ground clearance from your vehicle in the dry season and 4x4 capability in the wet season. If you travel via Namibia, you will have to stock up on eating and drinking needs in Katima. The steaks we bought there tested the teeth's ability to cut rubber - so be careful :-( The chicken flatty was excellent :-) Travelling via Kazangula, we recommend Livingstone to stock up.
