Chobe Savanna Lodge

Discover Fly Fishing In Namibia

The Chobe Savanna Lodge is situated on the banks of the Chobe River offering spectacular views of the Chobe National Park’s Puku Flats.  The Chobe River is a great place to cast for tigerfish and tilapia in Namibia.

excellent tiger fishing

Chobe Savanna Lodge is nestled on the banks of the Chobe River, on the eastern side of the Caprivi Strip. With an incredible vista of the Chobe National Park and its wildlife, the lodge is reached by easy flight from Johannesburg to Kasane. The short boat transfer to Chobe Savanna Lodge from Kasane is a safari in itself with plenty of wildlife encountered on the way.

With the Chobe River on the doorstep, excellent fishing grounds can be reached within 15 minutes. You will have the opportunity to fish for tigerfish and also the three carnivorous bream species, nembwe, three spot and red breasted tilapia.

The technique is to drift down the river casting into areas of structure from which the tigers ambush the flies. Strikes are hard and fast and will take you by surprise. The fishing is either from skiffs in the main Chobe and Zambezi rivers, or from mokoros (the local dugout canoe) amidst the Zambezi rapids. 

a sanctuary retreat

Chobe Savanna Lodge accommodates up to 26 guests in ten comfortably furnished thatched chalets, two family rooms, and one family suite, each with a private deck and en-suite facilities. 

The focal point of the lodge is a thatched open sided main building which commands a 270 degree view over the Chobe River and beyond to the Chobe National Park.

The service and food is first class, and this, combined with the comfortable surroundings, the swimming pool and the superb wildlife viewing, makes Chobe Savannah Lodge perfect for families and non-fishing partners. 

“Truly a great African fishing experience combined with amazing Game viewing.” G.R. Matthew

Easily accessible wilderness
