Package Itinerary

Lake Malawi itself, provide varied fishing opportunities in Malawi.

Light tackle will cover most situations and some equipment may be available for hire at the lodge, though it’s always best to bring your own.

The majority of the 1000 or so species in Lake Malawi are small tropical aquarium fish, mbuna. However, sungwa (perch), ngumbo (lake yellow-fish), mpasa (lake salmon), sanjika (smaller relative of lake salmon), ncheni (lake tiger), kampango (catfish) and vundu (catfish) offer interesting possibilities. Fishing is year round but best between September and April.
