Safari camps

Barotse Tiger Camp offers a thrilling fishing safari adventure together with drama and wildlife all wrapped up with luxury in the Zambia wilderness. The main tented area offers guests an opulent and relaxing fusion of Afro-colonial chic with with unforgettable views across the Zambezi River and the Barotse flood plain.

Run by Angle Zambia, each of the six sumptuous river-front safari tents are discretely situated within their own private setting with unforgettable views across the Zambezi River and the Barotse flood plain. These well-appointed tents are available with single or double beds all fitted with unobtrusive mosquito nets. After a day of fishing on the Zambezi River you can enjoy fine cuisine in a separate dining tent, prepared by the resident chef, Simon. Only the finest and freshest ingredients are used to create a fusion of traditional and contemporary tastes.

You can also relax in the stylish bar or the lounge area, both perfect settings to relax and enjoy sun-downers. This well presented Zambia safari camp offers a beautiful base from which to explore the Zambezi River within the exciting and remote area of western Zambia. The camp is neatly presented, merging beautifully within a picturesque, pristine bush setting. The clear stretches of Zambexi River in the Barotse region consist of a myriad islands, lagoons and channels which combine to create an idyllic setting and fishing safari conditions.

Wildlife

Within this region there is an abundance of Zambian wildlife. The area has been described as something of a holy grail for wildlife enthusiasts, simply due to its array of wildlife, its phenomenal fauna and flora and its remoteness. Thousands of wildebeest migrate to the lush plains after the rains in what is considered to be Africa's second largest animal migration. A host of other animals habitat the plains too, including oribi, zebra, red lechwe as well as predators such as hyenas, lion, and the occasional cheetah. The bird life is rich and varied with about 450 of Zambia's recorded 740 species found in this region. Of particular note are the water birds where sheer numbers can be staggering. The extremely abundant ecosystem continues to exist partly due to the remoteness of Barotseland which forms part of the Kingdom of the Lozi in western Zambia.
