VIEW AVAILABLE DATES

The Sioma-Barotse Experience 

The Sioma Fishing Safari is available for 4 – 12 people during set dates from Sept to December and takes place in Barotseland but not on the Barotse floodplains. It begins with 1 or 2 nights at Mutemwa Lodge before you set off upriver fishing all day to the Sioma Falls (the second largest Falls on the Zambezi). Whilst you are fishing upriver, we drive around and setup a mobile safari camp on a remote beach below the falls where you spend the next 2 or 3 nights fishing the deep gorge water for the large tigers lurking below. You will then fish all the way back down to Mutemwa for the last night.

Where is it and how do you get there

The 5 night trip begins 80km downstream at Mutemwa Lodge where you spend the first night. The next day you begin fishing upstream all the way to the base of the Ngonye Falls.

Your accommodation at Sioma Falls 

Sioma Falls is 70kms upriver from Mutemwa Lodge and is the second largest waterfall on the Zambezi river. Here, the Zambezi is narrow and has deep fast flowing water, with cascading rapids and lots of black volcanic rock. The fishing at Sioma Falls is excellent and you stand a good chance of catching a big tiger. The camp overlooks an expanse of “coral white” beach and the basalt black cliffs which harness the mighty Zambezi River. Your day of fishing to the Sioma Falls starts this morning. Fishing the deep channels and rapids all the way from Mutemwa Lodge, through the Top and Kaale Rapids to a beach below the Sioma Falls. There are some very deep channels and some excellent runs to fish for the large and aggressive tigerfish that lurk in these waters. Packed lunches and coolboxes are supplied.
