About - Cahorra Bassa
Cahorra Bassa is one of Africa’s larger fresh water land masses and its main tributary is the mighty Zambezi River. The dam lies within Mozambique to the western central side forming a ‘corner’ where it meets with Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The lake is more than 280 km in its total length and has millions of hectares of unutilized and spectacular, mountainous, wildlife country that surrounds its varying shore line.
Nhenda camp is situated in one of the remotest parts of the dam and boasts miles of private, untamed waters.
The camp at Nhenda is designed and built to blend into the wild. It consists of 4 rooms and a main lounge/dining area that overlooks a calm secluded bay teeming with different fish species.
The lodge is not a 5 star venue but the rooms are clean and comfortable, the food is tasty and filling and the beer cold. This is a very special private venue that has some of the best tiger fishing on the continent.
The area that surrounds the lodge has a large number of wildlife (game) species and one cannot help wondering if this is what Africa would have been like 100 years ago. Often the roar of lions can be heard from the camp fire. Night game drives add to the excitement of a true African fishing safari. Hippos and crocodiles are the custodians of this great water mass and can be seen whilst fishing or cruising around the many hidden bays and river inlets within the Nhenda concession.
