THE LODGE: Nxamaseri Island Lodge is Highly exclusive – featuring just seven double en-suite chalets and a charming tree house. The lodge maintains an intimate atmosphere for those requiring true relaxation. Each secluded room is surrounded by indigenous forest and enjoys a private deck overlooking the water. Teak walkways link the chalets to the lodge main area, providing an opportunity to witness – at close range – the remarkable birdlife that inhabits the tree canopy above.
The Tiger Fish is an indigenous species that provides thrilling angling for both experienced and novice fishermen. It has a voracious appetite and can reach as much as nine kilos in weight.
Various other species – including some magnificent bream and catfish – can also be caught on line, ensuring an eventful and memorable fishing trip at Botswana Nxamaseri Island Lodge.
Bream fishing is usually best during the winter months, from April until August. The optimum time to fish for Tiger Fish is during the annual catfish runs (“barbel runs”). The exact time of these runs differs from year to year but generally lasts from late August to the beginning of November.
Outside of these months Nxamaseri Island Lodge is still able to offer excellent fishing as the water levels are lower. This concentrates the marine life in the permanent channels and you will experience a great deal of species diversity.
Nxamaseri Island Lodge offers a number of specialist fly-fishing guides and fully equipped boats. We can also make special arrangements if additional boats are required for fly-fishing.
