    I submitted an enquiry form on their website and they came back with availability and rates. From memory it was US$1000 per day for 2 people all inclusive. Certainly worth the money as it's absolutely wonderful.

    Yes a good time if you like tiger fishing. Great sport when the Zambezi is low. The weather is colder in the morning and evenings but there will be no rain. Also, there will be less water going over the Victoria Falls.
