A Fishing Trip with Us

Whether you're a rod and reel fisherman or a serious fly fisherman, we cater to all.  


The Okavango Delta is home to 71 fish species including the Tiger Fish, Tilapia and various species of Catfish.  Fish sizes can range from 1.4m (African Sharptooth Catfish) to 3.2cm (Sickle Barb).  The same species are to be found in the Zambezi River, indicating the historic link between the two river systems.


The “Barbel Runs” of the Okavango Delta take place anytime from September to December every year.  This feeding frenzy that occurs almost exclusively in the far northern corner of Botswana is something every fisherman just has to experience at least once in their lifetime.  For the serious fly or reel fisherman, it’s simply an opportunity  to indulge in some serious fishing action.  Because alongside the Barbel, come the highly sought after Tiger Fish which is held in high esteem as Africa’s prime freshwater target.


March to April is good for Bream (Tilapia).  August through to September is good for Nembwe.  During January and February, the fishing is closed in Botswana due to the breeding season taking place.


Definitely one for your bucket list, the Tiger Fish species provides thrilling angling for both experienced and novice

fishermen and can reach as much as nine kilos in weight.


From private camping to lodge accommodation or most popularly, private houseboat trips, Africa Inbound Safaris will tailor make your fishing trip of a lifetime to suit your individual needs.


We will help you decide on the perfect fishing trip for you - either as individuals or as a group booking.  We then take you through the planning stages on how to get to us, where to stay and what kind of fishing you're interested in.  We will arrange flights, transfers and all logistics surrounding your fishing trip.


We will take care of you from start to finish - assisting you with what to bring, best time of year to book for the species that you're after as well as visa requirements, innoculation requirements (depending on what country you're visiting) and any medical or dietary requirements that you may have.


For the more adventurous traveller we also offer many add-ons to your trip - whether you're interested in a Safari in the bush either prior to or after your fishing trip, or else perhaps some hunting or bird shooting as well. Check our safari website:


All bookings and enquiries are handled personally, efficiently and we ensure that we are available to you at all times to answer questions and to assist in any way possible with your trip, both prior to, during the trip and afterwards.
