edge, a rose wood deck with lounge bar and swimming pool to relax in.

refreshing sundowner on a sunset cruise.

With a myriad of fish species abundant in the Zambezi River, ample angling opportunities are on offer. Famous for its tiger fish and bream, the river promises to challenge and enthrall both the angling enthusiast and the novice.
In close proximity to the lodge there are excellent tiger waters at the Wanela rapids and other rock beds. By staying at the lodge these waters prove an easy morning / afternoons angling.
Other angling waters are 40 - 60km from lodge's base with good tiger and bream angling spots. This is possible to do in a day trip returning to the lodge at night or otherwise to camp for a night or two with the houseboats as base camp along the Zambezi River.
Best angling times run from late April through to January for tiger fish and catfish species and from June through to November for the bream species.
Angling boats can be rented on a half or full day basis. All boats hired are accompanied by a skipper. Knowledgeable guides for specialized angling safaris can also be arranged.
Relax with a refreshing sundowner whilst enjoying a spectacular sunset over the Zambezi River.
HALF AND FULL DAY CRUISES
Enjoy a leisurely day on the Zambezi and a picnic or braai lunch along the riverbank.
In close proximity to three other countries, day trips and transfers can be arranged to the Chobe National Park, Victoria Falls, Ngonye Falls and the Bwabwata, Mamili and Madumu National Parks.
Overnight safaris on lodge's houseboats will take you down the Zambezi and/or Chobe Rivers to enjoy, with the river as your platform, the fascinating array of fauna and flora this region has to offer. Travel at a leisurely pace down the expanse of these mighty rivers with its endless floodplains and breathtaking sunsets. In the evening relax around the warmth of a campfire on a secluded white sandbank before heading to the comfort of your tent, gently rocking to sleep to the sounds of an African night.

The Zambezi River
The Zambezi River is the fourth largest river system in Africa. Beginning its journey as an insignificant little spring in the northwest corner of Zambia it runs for a length of 2700km through six countries before finally completing its fascinating journey in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean. For 130km this river forms the border between Namibia and Zambia.
The Chobe River
Forming the southern border between the Eastern Caprivi and Botswana, the Chobe River meanders eastwards through the Chobe National Park to meet up with the Zambezi River at Kazungula.
