Updates from the Luangwa Valley

Fishing safari


In April I had a client that was very interested in fishing so we arranged a fishing safari for him, all though the Luangwa River is otherwise not an interesting river for fishing but we caught some big catfish.

Spending more time on the river also gave us the opportunity to observe the wildlife around. We watched an African fish eagle diving for a fish, before he could take off with the fish we saw a 1.5 metre croc trying to take the fish from the bird. He failed but we realised that fishing safari do provide us with some unexpected game viewing opportunities. We enjoyed the sunset before making our way back to the lodge with the spotlight. On the way we came across a mating pair of leopards, this was a unique opportunity to see two of these otherwise solitary predators.
