It is no exaggeration to say that we are the UK’s experts in arranging trips to Africa for Tigerfish, and have been for the last 30 years. We have excellent relationships with the best lodges and this is reflected in the amount of return visitors we have.

This experience also means that we can tailor all of our trips accordingly to take in the iconic Victoria Falls or add game viewing according to requirements. For the uninitiated the tiger fish is probably Africa’s finest and most awesome game fish. For sheer aggression – pound for pound – it must rank as one of the world’s most powerful freshwater species and the Zambezi is full of them! The tiger possesses a ferocious set of 18 large, triangular razor sharp teeth enclosed in a bony head and is distinctive by its black/blue lateral tiger stripes with bright yellow and red caudal fin.

Following customer feedback we have also incorporated a mini safari at the end of this trip to witness the remarkable game in the Hwange National Park. Not only including a full days safari but the chance to relax with a cold drink as elephants and other animals visit the watering holes less than 20 metres away.
