After an early breakfast we board a motorised boat from Sekoma Island that will then take us and our luggage and one raft up river. We will cover roughly 70 to 80km mapping the exact route we will drift back, on GPS. On arrival at drop of point, we will assemble our raft, pack out supplies and begin our drift back down to Sekoma Island. With a group of 4 fishermen, pairs of anglers will alternate between fishing of drift boat and motorised boat on a daily basis. Drifting with the current and with the help of an oarsman we will fish and view game. We will camp completely wild at a suitable site on the river bank.

After an early breakfast we will enjoy our last couple of hours on the water before making our way back to Livingstone International Airport. Departing Livingstone at 13h35 we will arrive at JHB at 15h15.

Why Winter:
From mid may to early August the waters begin receding of the Caprivi Flood plains into the Zambezi River. With them they bring vast amounts of nutrients and recently spawned bait fish. For this reason the fishing (particularly the fly fishing) is at it best, not to mention the fantastic game viewing opportunities. The temperatures during the day are perfect, slightly chilly mornings and evening and very comfortable temperatures during the day. Rain is absent at this time of the year.
