One of these is rated by many anglers as "the finest sporting and fighting fish in the world" - The renowned Tigerfish. Come and meet this formidable opponent.

Angle Zambia offers you a memorable day on the river and an opportunity to tell of "the big one that got away!" 

Fish

The Tigerfish (Hydrocynus Vittatus) is a major freshwater angling game fish and can easily be recognized by the bluish sheen on its back, a series of parallel longitudinal black stripes, blood red fins and a series of 8 large protruding sharply pointed teeth in each jaw. They are ferocious and aggressive apex predators, and are a hard fighting freshwater game fish.  An awesome fish to catch on light tackle and fly fishing equipment.  Tigerfish are indigenous to Africa.

Destination Overview

Cape Town is a port city on South Africa’s southwest coast, on a peninsula beneath the imposing Table Mountain. Slowly rotating cable cars climb to the mountain’s flat top, from which there are sweeping views of the city, the busy harbor and boats heading for Robben Island, the notorious prison that once held Nelson Mandela, which is now a living museum.

 

Cape Town is the oldest city in South Africa, colloquially named the Mother City. It is the legislative capital of South Africa and primate city of the Western Cape province. It forms part of the City of Cape Town metropolitan municipality.

 

The city is known for its harbor, for its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, and for landmarks such as Table Mountain and Cape Point. Cape Town is home to 64% of the Western Cape's population. It is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, reflecting its role as a major destination for immigrants and expatriates to South Africa.

 

The city was named the World Design Capital for 2014 by the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design. In 2014, Cape Town was named the best place in the world to visit by both The New York Times and The Daily Telegraph.

Located on the shore of Table Bay, Cape Town, as the oldest urban area in South Africa, was developed by the Dutch East India Company (VOC) as a supply station for Dutch ships sailing to East AfricaIndia, and the Far East

 

Jan van Riebeeck's arrival on 6 April 1652 established Dutch Cape Colony, the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Until the Witwatersrand Gold Rush and the development of Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa.
