Visas are the responsibility of the traveller. It is best to consult with the high commission of the country being travelled to in the country being travelled from as requirements vary and change constantly. Botswana Safaris will not be held responsible for any incomplete or incorrect information regarding the visa process gathered by the traveller.

The upper Zambezi and Kasai channel offer some of the best river fishing around, and the Pangolin Voyager offers you the opportunity to fish for the Zambezi Grand Slam: catching a tigerfish, bream and catfish in one day.

The tigerfish, one of the most explosive fighting game fish in the world, can grow up to 10kg in the upper Zambezi, and catfish of 25kg are not unheard of. Bream can grow up to 4kg, and resemble the form and behaviour of the largemouth bass of North America.

These are the African bass. All of these fish respond to the fluctuations in water level and quality throughout the year.

We have fishing gear onboard should you wish to try your luck and the guides will advise and instruct you where necessary. Fishing licences which support the local community are included in your stay.
