Fishing Safaris in Tanzania

 
Fishing is a very popular sport in Tanzania and visitors are ensured some great angling opportunities. Freshwater rivers and lakes occupy about 7% of the country's land mass. The best time for a Tanzania fishing safari is after the rains, which fall in November and December and again in April and May.

Angling on Lake Victoria

One of the most well-equipped areas for fishing is the southern port of Lake Victoria — known as Mwanza. This is where you will have the opportunity to fish for Tilapia and Nile Perch. Lake Victoria has a shoreline measuring 3500 kilometres in length and over 3000 islands dotted about it. Some of these islands are inhabited.

Lake Tanganyika: Africa's second largest freshwater lake

Another great fishing destination in Tanzania is Lake Tanganyika. Tanganyika is the second largest freshwater lake in Africa and it is where you will find the Goliath Tigerfish and over 350 species of fish, as well as over two thousand animal and plant species. Approximately 600 of these are unique to this area.

Fish the Rufiji River

The largest river in Tanzania is the Rufiji River. Freshwater fishing enthusiasts have a choice of 21 lakes within the Rufiji floodplain to go fishing. These lakes yield excellent catches after they have received their annual floods. Saltwater fishing is also available near the Rufiji coast. Prawn fishing is good on the sandbanks of the Rufiji Delta.
