Fishing Safaris & Victoria Falls in Zambia with John du Plooy

Zambia offers a diverse range of fishing destinations from the mighty Zambezi River, the scenic Kafue River through to the various lakes and dams such as Tanganyika, Kariba and Itsehi-teshi. Many world and personal fishing records have been broken in Zambia.


Water, abound with hippo, crocodile, birds and a wide range of fish give a unique experience to each and every traveller. The attraction and beauty of this region is not limited to the exciting fishing or the large and varied quantity of bird life. Steeped in history and traditions Zambia offers much to the international traveler.


The story of the conquering Lozi people (who originated from Zaire) starts in the 17th Century. The

Kololo tribe, whose language they retain, in turn conquered them. The Lozi throne was restored when the Lozi rose up and massacred every Kololo man, woman and child during a single night. The Ku’omboka ceremony, predating recorded Zambian history, is the main Barotseland cultural event held annually in March or April. It is the journey of the paramount chief (the Litunga, a highly respected chosen member of the Royal family) from the dry season residence to the higher ground wet season residence. Not everyone is fortunate enough to witness this amazing ceremony, but a visit to a local village will provide a wealth of insight into the traditional way of life that has altered little in the passing years.


The Victoria Falls, as first witnessed by David Livingstone, is an unspoiled natural wonder and world heritage site. A must for all visitors to Zambia, the experiences offered from walks along the falls to white water rafting, micro lighting, elephant rides, serene river cruises and breakfast on the island where David Livingstone first saw Victoria Falls are some of the many different activities on offer.
