Get a thrill from targeting Tanzanian trophy tigerfish in one of the must-fish destinations of freshwater fly fishing: the Mnyera and Ruhudji Rivers of the Tanzanian wilderness.

Together, these rivers offer some of the best fishing available for adventurous anglers searching for monster tigerfish between the 10- and 25-pound range.

Tanzania’s flyfishing experiences are underpinned by sustainable conservation efforts. These African fisheries are managed with strict protocols and concessions to ensure a controlled fly-fishing operation that protects the natural surroundings. 

This location offers guests one of the wildest freshwater fishing journeys. Fishing is done in the company of crocodiles whilst drifting along the river systems in aluminium boats carrying two anglers, a guide, and a boatman. Lead by expert guides, adventurous anglers can fish for the endemic species of yellowfish (rhino and black velvet) and the mighty vundu. 

After an exciting day fishing, enjoy a rustic bush camp experience either at the Dhalla Camp on the Mnyera river or its seasonal sister camp, Samaki, nestled along the banks of the Ruhudji river.

Dhalla Camp is the permanent bush camp offering tired anglers large, thatched chalets with two double bedrooms complete with mosquito nets and a private bathroom. Samaki camp is a seasonal bush camp with a rustic feel and no electricity, and is rebuilt at the beginning of each fishing season. 

Get up close and personal with the trophy tigerfish of Tanzania in the majestic waters of this untouched wilderness of natural beauty.
