MATOYA FISHING LODGE
UPPER ZAMBEZI, ZAMBIA
Matoya is very remotely situated on the upper Zambezi, in the Barotse floodplains area. This region is home to some of the biggest trophy tigerfish in the Zambezi system. Each year the low lying floodplains in the area flood with new water, which comes down from the Eastern Angolan highlands. This flooding creates a boom of breeding and plenty of feeding frenzies when the water starts to recede back into the main channels. Matoya is a dedicated fishing lodge, with excellent bass style boats, experienced guides and a comfortable lodge with great food and a bar where plenty of stories are told.
