Redcliff Zambezi Lodge

Redcliff Zambezi Lodge and surrounding area are best known for superb tigerfishing, with the tigerfish being rated one of the strongest fighters kilogram for kilogram. Redcliff’s fishing licence covers all its guests. The lodge supports a catch-and-release policy. Fibre mounts/replicas are available for trophy fishing.

Some of the best catches have been made close to ‘home’ off the jetty just below the lodge itself. Some of the other fish found in local waters include Cornish Jack, Bottle’nose, Silver Catfish, Bream and Vundu – over 30 species in all. Fly-fishing for Zambezi Tigerfish has become an increasingly popular activity for fly fishermen. Tigerfish of 4-7 kg are commonly caught recorded catches of up to 10KG.

I am not against work since i can not, but it keeps armies of unworthy from discovering fishing!

 

Boats

One double decked pontoon boat and six fishing boats are available for your use. Guests are always accompanied by an experienced guide on all water excursions. Sunset on the water is a magnificent experience along with the sounds of the wild, which only Africa can provide and a sunset cruise can be arranged.

One-Day River Excursion

Travel upstream on the Zambezi River into the scenic Mpata Gorge, accompanied by our experienced guide. The magnificent surroundings are ideal for fishing, photography and game viewing. Elephant, hippo, crocodiles, antelope and birds are abundant in this area. Lunch is usually served on the riverbank in a shady spot.

 

Bird-Watching

Birders will revel in the abundance of avifauna, including the majestic Fish Eagle for which the area is so well-known. More than 500 indigenous bird species abound and migrating birds from the northern hemisphere settle in the area to breed during the summer months. Rare species that have been spotted in the area include the Tiata Falcon, Angola Pitta and Pel’s Fishing Owl. The Lower Zambezi is truly a bird watcher’s paradise.

 

Game Viewing – General

Day trips into the Lower Zambezi National Park expose visitors to four of Africa’s ‘Big Five’ – lion, elephant, buffalo and leopard. These are the animals which most visitors to Africa seek out. For the more discerning game viewer, large herds of zebras and the occasional leopard sighting provide greater excitement, as do the numerous other antelope and more elusive species such as the wild dog.

 

Customised Day Trails

Guided day walks can be undertaken along the river shore area or into the more densely vegetated hinterland. Duration of the trials is customised according to the ability of the guests and weather conditions at the time.
