Tiger Safaris


Tiger Safaris is one of the most established fishing camps on the Zimbabwean side of the Zambezi River.  Situated just downstream from the Chirundu border post,  our camp is equipped with everything you need - you won't have to worry about a thing.

We have 6 beautiful chalets set on the banks of the Zambezi River where you will be able to relax, experience frequent visits by our local community (elephants, hippo and many others) and have the opportunity to catch one of the most exciting fresh water fish in the world, the Tiger Fish.

There's nothing like waking up to a Great Zambezi sunrise or relaxing at the end of the day to the view of the sun stretching across the water.

Our five thatched, riverside chalets are located at the River Camp approximately 2 km off the main road.  They can accommodate 6 in two bedrooms, each with a bathroom and fully-equipped kitchen.  There are also outside braai (barbeque) facilities and a swimming pool overlooking a waterhole.  Chalet 6 is located about 1 km away, but also right on the river, and is larger, accommodating up to 8 people.

We have 4 boats and a pontoon for hire, together with guides, who will take you for a Tiger fishing experience you will never forget. Alternatively the area is wonderful for birdwatching, game viewing and photography.

Brendon Urwin, Australia 16 September 2016
Our group of 5 from Perth Western Australia were lucky enough to spend 7 wonderful days fishing, game viewing and chilling at Tiger Safaris in September 2016. We loved our stay and we were very well looked after by the friendly and attentive staff. Our thanks to Dylan and Hayley for being such fantastic hosts, Moses and Barbara for ensuring we wanted for nothing and Smoke and Promise for ensuring the beasts didn't make off with us at night. The boat captains (guides) are some of the best fishermen I have ever had the pleasure of fishing with and despite having dabbled at tiger fishing before almost every day was a learning experience. They are incredibly knowledgeable and diligent, patiently talking and guiding you through every engagement ensuring you got to enjoy the experience of catching such a wonderful fish. They have an uncanny ability to know when you have a fish at your bait despite you having a finger on your line, which made for some funny and humbling moments on more than one occasion. Our special thanks to Takesure and Amos, absolute legends. ..and speaking of legends, if anyone has ever opted for catering at Tiger's and experienced their cooking you will know they can produce some damn fine food, Dylan's ribs recipe though verges on the dark arts. I have never seen a group of adults demolish a platter of ribs with such gusto, the ribs were tender, sticky and delicious and have set a bloody high standard that we are all doubtful can be beat by any of the finer restaurants here in Perth. Our thanks To Dylan and his team for all of the fine food, snacks for the boats and packed lunches for the trip to Mana. See you again soon. Thanks to Brendan for this awesome review. We look forward to hosting you again in the near future...... Tiger Safaris
