Excellent tiger fishing except for July and August. Bream, pike and barbel throughout the year. The barbel run starts anytime from mid-September and can continue throughout November. Spin fishing tackle is available for hire and a full stock of lures and spinners are on sale.
Nguma Island Lodge is a birdwatchers paradise covering not only all water species viewed from the boat or mokoro but a full compliment of dry land and flood plain species viewed during island and flood plain walks. Find the elusive Pel’s fishing owl on the numerous islands. Or during the barbel run take a 50 minute boat ride to the main Okavango River through meandering channels literally lined with fish eagle, goliath heron, darters and egrets feeding, forming your own special guard of honour.
No Okavango experience is complete without a mokoro ride. Get lost in the Delta being poled on a mokoro (dugout) through papyrus and reed beds to lily covered lagoons and islands, viewing elephant, lechwe, warthog, sitatunga and other plains game in the open, not to mention the birdlife.
Enjoy a 50 minute boat ride to the main Okavango where tiger and barbel abound or outwit that nembwe by dropping a fly or spinner close to that grassy edge. Turn off to an inlet or hidden lagoon for other bream species and african pike. Large boats are provided for fishing and fly fishing with guides/drivers indigenous to the area with an unbeatable knowledge of the fauna and flora as well as directing you to the perfect fishing spot or positioning that boat for that perfect fly cast.

Order that speciality barbeque for an island lunch or for the fisherman a sandwich lunch that won’t interfere with the tying and casting…
