My son and I recently spent a wonderful four (4) days at Shackletons Fishing Lodge. From the cool towel on arrival down to the farewell at our car on departure everything was fantastic. You can put "Very" in front of everything.......organized, clean, experienced and friendly guides, good equipment, reasonably priced and comfortable. The rooms are very well appointed and remained...

The personalized...

In early July my wife and I visited Shackletons Tiger Lodge on the upper Zambezi Zambia for 6 days of Tiger fishing. We are both very keen fisherman and have been fishing the upper Zambezi for the past 5 years during the flood plain drain off period. We were not disappointed. Shackletons setting is idyllic right on the banks of...

We spent four nights at the lodge in July and, although the fishing was quiet, all the guests in camp managed to land at least one fish - all of which were over the 4kg mark. The lodge itself, however, is not as exciting as the fishing! Unfortunately, the rooms are small and freezing (yes, we travelled there in winter...
