THE INCREDIBLE WILDLIFE OF AFRICA
As you can imagine, many of our African destinations also offer the chance to see some of the most awe-inspiring and colourful animals on the planet.
We want our trips to be not only for anglers but for photographers and wildlife enthusiasts also. Nearly all of our destinations give you close up and personal access to an incredible array of birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians and insects in some of the most beautiful, stunning lodges and landscapes in the world.
Along the Zambezi watershed, when you wake up to a dawn chorus, you’ll know you’re in Africa!! Everything just comes alive at dawn. A multitude of birds of every hue and colour and so many insects erupt in a cacophony of song and dance. Pigeons in Trafalgar Square this is not!
Giraffes, waterbuck, kudu, antelopes, water buffalo, zebras, monkeys and baboons can be seen down at the river. But, what really does it for many guests, is to see elephants come for a drink and a bath and often crossing the river or playing with each other, right in front of your eyes.
Lions can often be heard growling and roaring to each other at night, especially on the Lower Zambezi region, but just sometimes, anglers get to see them drinking at the water’s edge. On game drives, guests can often come across a stubborn lion refusing to move from in front of the jeep!
In Egypt in the bleak, empty-looking desert surrounding Lake Nasser, there appears to be no life anywhere. But there are more than 100 species of birds here, including wild duck, Egyptian geese, pelicans, herons, egrets and various species of hawks, kites, falcons and eagles. In most areas there are big Nile crocodile, monitor lizards, as well as Dorcas gazelle, jackals, desert fox and various smaller desert mammals.
