Some of the Chobe riverfront lodges offer fishing expeditions on the great river, which can often be combined with a longer game viewing cruise. Specimens that are abundant in the Chobe include tigerfish, tilapia and various types of bream, and for areas outside of the park a catch and release policy will not always necessarily be enforced. Equipment will be provided and a knowledgeable guide on hand to pilot the boat, point out hippos, crocodiles and birdlife as you go, before helping you try to reel in the big one! For actual fishing spots, the boat will usually be positioned near to the banks or close to rocks within the river, where fish tend to congregate in larger numbers. Should you head out on an afternoon fishing trip, the journey back to your lodge might turn into an extremely picturesque sundowner cruise with snacks and a cold drink in hand.
