FISHING

Excellent tiger fishing (except for July and August). Bream, Pike and Barbel throughout the year. The barbel run starts anytime from mid-September and can continue throughout November. Spin fishing tackle is available for hire and a full stock of lures and spinners are on sale.

BIRDWATCHING

Nguma Island Lodge is a birdwatchers paradise with a diverse range of water and land-based species. Find the elusive Pel’s fishing owl on the numerous islands. Take a 50-minute boat ride to the main Okavango River through meandering channels literally lined with fish eagle, goliath heron, darters, and egrets feeding, forming your own special guard of honour.

MOKORO EXCURSIONS

No Okavango experience is complete without a mokoro ride. Get lost in the Delta being poled on a mokoro (dugout) through papyrus and reed beds to lily covered lagoons and islands, viewing elephant, lechwe, warthog, sitatunga, and other plains game in the open, not to mention the birdlife.

BOATING & SUNSET CRUISES

Enjoy a 50-minute boat ride to the main Okavango where tiger and barbel abound or outwit that Nembwe by dropping a fly or spinner close to that grassy edge. Turn off to an inlet or hidden lagoon for other bream species and African Pike. Large boats are provided for fishing and fly fishing with guides/drivers indigenous to the area with excellent knowledge of the environment.
