What to do

The Sioma Falls, which are situated approximately 60kms upstream of Kabula, are beautiful horseshoe shaped alls.The sheer volume of water that cascades over the 20m drop is spectacular.The river flows underneath the rock on either side of the falls. It is quite an experience to stand on the rock and feel and hear the massive underground flows. This unique geological phenomenon is attributed to the fact that the falls mark the transition point of the Zambezi Rivers’ flow from the Kalahari sand floodplain to the north, into the basalt dykes to the south. 


The Zambezi River is subdivided into three “reaches”, the Upper, the Middle and the Lower. Kabula is situated on the Upper Zambezi which is regarded as the best part of the river for Tiger fishing. The Tiger Fish breed in the thousands of pools in the Liuwa floodplains and are flushed out each year by the floods. The best time for Tiger fishing at Kabula is from April to December when the water is warm and the level of the river is low before the start of the rainy season. Large Tiger Fish are plentiful, as are various species of bream, particularly the predatory yellow-belly and thin face breams which make for great fishing and wonderful eating. Large barbel, which will also give you a fight to remember, are also present. Fishing boats, which are provided with experienced boatmen who know the river, and the best Tiger fishing spots, are available for hire.


The area around Kabula abounds in bird life with more than 200 species having been recorded. The large and formidable Pel’s Fishing Owl, which is not intimidated by humans, is a regular visitor to the area, as are Fish Eagle, various species of Cormorants and other water birds, Herons, Schalow’s Lourie, Honeyguides, Eagles and other birds of prey, Parrots, Hornbill, Dikkops, Plovers and numerous others.

Island and bush walks - the island is some 300 ha in extent, is covered in the most magnificent indigenous vegetation with a number of natural pools and provides ideal walks with some of the most rewarding birding in the area.

Liuwa Plain - The Lodge is a convenient stopping off place for the intrepid traveller on route to the Liuwa Plains National Park in the North where the second largest migration of wildebeest in Africa takes place.
