Most of the villagers around us are dependent on fishing as a livelihood, so it is best for us to arrange that you head out armed with local knowledge. There are four basic line-fish to lure, they are:
Lake Tanganyika TIGER FISH. You don’t need a boat, just stand on the dock, or in front of your Chalet and cast. If you are even only a little lucky, you will reel them in!
The “Sangala Pamba” is the Lake Tanganyika Perch, (Lates Angustifrons). He can get to 100kg and 2 metres long.
We also have the “Kuhe” (Boulengerochromis microlepis), the world’s largest cichlid. He grows up to about 70cm and is a majestically beautiful fellow.
The “Mikebuka” is also from the “Lates” family and is probably the most abundantly fished guy on the Lake.
Whether you go out on a local boat, on your own kayak, or on one of our boats, you will have stories to tell………….but then, all fishermen do!!
