Calling all fishermen and women! We have created a private guided 10 day, fly-in fishing group getaway, exploring three spots which offer the most impressive sport fishing. Bass fishing on the beautiful Lake Mteri, all species fishing at Bumi Hills on Lake Kariba and Tiger Fishing at your exclusive luxury lodge on the great Zambezi River.
Day 1 to 4 – Mteri Dam, Chiredzi
Arrive to Buffalo Range Airport and travel into the beautiful Hippo Valley Sugar Estate in the southern stretch of Zimbabwe. The sweeping views of Lake Mteri and natural beauty of the Zimbabwean landscape play stage to spectacular bass, bream, and barbel fishing with a record catch of 6.5kgs and average hookups of 2.5–3kgs. Mteri Dam is arguably some of the best fishing in the country, and every angler’s best chance of catching a giant large-mouth bass. The lake is roughly 975 hectares with an abundance of lay down and stand up timber, as well as thickets of reeds, grass beds and beds of lily pads making it ideal for top water, spinner baits, soft plastic lures, and heavy braids. A fisherman’s dream!
