Ultimate Tigerfish Adventure
Join us for an action packed African fishing adventure, our adversary– the continent’s second largest species of Tigerfish (Hydrocynus tanzaniae). Second only to the mighty Goliath. Expect multiple hits a day with average weights of 4-7Kg and a 9kg specimen a very realistic prospect! Where are we going? We are privileged to have sole access to a fishing concession in the world famous Selous Game reserve. The reserve is named after the famous big game hunter and conservationist Frederick Courtenay Selous who was killed in the area whilst fighting the Germans during world war one, January 4th 1917 to be exact. The reserve covers 50,000Km2 and is home to a huge diversity of flora and fauna including the big five. Our concession affords us access to 100Km of prime fishing on the Kilombero and Ulanga rivers. The area is a pristine environment affording numerous opportunities for game viewing amongst the lush riverine forest and savannah plains. We operate out of 2 tented permanent camps which are sited in beautiful locations. Hot and cold running water, showers and western style toilet facilities make for a comfortable stay. Breakfast and evening meals are enjoyed in camp whilst lunches are usually enjoyed at strategic locations along the river. Great care is taken provide hearty meals of an excellent standard. Each day you will be accompanied by experienced guides who will assist as required. Fishing is a mixture of bank and boat tactics. All Tigerfish are strictly catch and release. We have caught large Rhino fish and huge Vundu in excess of 80lbs, catch and release for these larger specimens is also encouraged.
