Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe has long been considered one of the best tiger fishing destinations in Africa. This vast lake, covering an area of over 5,000 square kilometres, sees hundreds of fishermen flocking to its shores each year to catch the huge, fearsome-looking tiger fish, considered the best fresh water sport fish. Kariba's annual Tiger Tournament, held in October, is a game fishing event that has gained global recognition over the years and draws quite a crowd. There are a number of houseboats that can be rented for fishing trips on Kariba and most of the boats have staff with a good knowledge of the best fishing spots, bait and gear to use.
