Shackletons Tiger Fishing Lodge is situated in south-western Zambia on the upper Zambezi River near the village of Mwandi (meaning a place of ‘plenty fish’).
The lodge accommodates 12 people in thatched, en-suite chalets with private teak decks overlooking the Zambezi River. The swimming pool, sundowner deck, lounge, open dining area and fire pit provide guests with unparalleled vistas of the upper Zambezi.
