Fishwrecked welcomes new site sponsor - Zambezi Safaris

Welcome to Zambezi Safaris.
You have seen them on TV,  Hydrocynus vittatus , the striped water dog. Teeth, stripes, orange fins, probably one of the most beautiful fish in Africa.
As an ex Zimbabwean now happily settled in Perth, I can't help but want to share the thrill of catching tiger.
Myself and my contacts back in Zim have come together to offer you the opportunity to experience the magic of the Zambezi River and its wildlife.
You have three lodges at your disposal, each with its own special features.
 
SIDINDA, is the fishing lodge, situated on the Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi, this lodge has access to some of the best tiger fishing available. This stretch of river is diverse, with rapids, deep pools and sandbars. The fish species are numerous, with Tigerfish, Vundu and Bream being the main targets.
The fishing season runs from late August to mid November.
 
BOMANI, is the game viewing lodge. A small pan with luxurious tented chalets situated around it. Sit around the camp fire in the evening whilst you watch wild elephant come out of the bush like grey ghosts to drink and play in the mud.
 
GORGES is a breath taking lodge. Situated on the very edge of the Batoka Gorge, every one of the ten chalets has a view of the Zambezi River 250m down at the bottom of the gorge.
Gorges Lodge is a 20minute drive away from Victoria Falls, where you can tour the falls or take part in adrenaline activities like white water rafting.
 
I have personally spent time at all three of these lodges. They are operated and run by experienced staff who will do whatever it takes to make you feel comfortable and enjoy the experience.
Please visit the website for more information www.zambezisafaris.net
Feel free to look up Gorges Lodge, (recently ranked #1 specialty lodge) and Bomani Tented Lodge on trip advisor http://www.tripadvisor.com.au/ to see what previous guests think.

Was looking at going back to SAFFA for a game park experience. Might just have to go to old Rhodesia instead. Looks great.

Both my lovely one and myself are fishing fanatics and with this we could just do both - game park and fishing.

Planning possibly soon.
