Omalanga Fishing Tours

Sea Fishing

Along the Namibian coast line flows the Benguela current coming from Antarctica. The reason for exceptionally wealth of fish is due to the direction of which the most nourishing water flows from the south to north. The fishing is of an economic importance to the country and its people. Whether by boat on the sea or from the beach, primaraly black sea bream, banded sea bream, Atun, Galjoen and the famous Namibian King Klip and Kabeljou can be caught.

The normal fishing season begins in this area at November and ends in March.

Another Highlight for the experienced fisherman is the so-called surf fishing with sharks, which is done from the beach or pier. Imagine catching a Bronze Shark, which can easily weigh up to 190 kg, fighting just as hard as the current. The little smaller Grey Shark and Dotted Shark are also favourites to be caught from shore. 

The shark-fishing season extends even up to May.

For fishing on the west coast the areas best suited are Paaltjies south of Walvis Bay, and northward to the Skeleton Coast Park and Terrace Bay. Particularly popular during high season is north of Swakopmund in the territory of the Coast National Recreation Area up to the Ugab River, a dry river.

Fishing on the Zambezi / Okavango

The Zambezi River forms the border between north-eastern Namibia to Zambia and Zimbabwe. About 40 species of fish can be caught, including the largest and most popular fish, the tiger fish. Best known for its aggressiveness and agility, this area is also known for sports angling. The tiger fish can weigh up to 6.5 kg.

Depending on the region, fishing is done by motorboat, from the traditional boat they build from wood (mokoro) and line fishing at the rapids from the shore. Remember to always keep your distance between Crocodiles and Hippos.

The fishing season at the Okavango River is from June to December except for the tiger fish which can be caught throughout the whole year.
