This was a wonderful trip and I can highly recommend it. We had a fantastic time. We enjoyed the food a lot, not 5 star but I enjoyed every meal. Nothing beats a good braai when you are from South Africa! There is also Wifi to get some messages out and phone coverage should you wish to keep in touch with family at home or brag about a catch! The fishing went well, more for some that others but at least everyone in our group caught. Also a small pool that is great to cool off after a day in the sun. Another great service is the laundry that gets done every night. That helped a lot. One person in our group forgot a large some of cash in his pocket and it was duly returned by the laundry people. The staff is great. My son cleaned us up during the week and caught 8 Tigers,

Sekoma island is not just about the natural beauty it's about the people from the security staff to hospitality and the guides, management are ever present and only happy to oblige the most trivial of requests, Sekoma is home away from home and on my return for the umpteenth time home is always a place you just know is right. The fishing is superb the Mozi is always cold and the experience is exceptional.

Sekoma Island and Ilombe Island Lodges are a great spot for some incredible tiger fishing. We stayed at Ilombe, the smaller (5 rooms) to and supposedly slightly more rustic lodge on the island adjacent to Sekoma. Having boated across one afternoon to see Sekoma, Ilombe certainly fulfilled our requirements. What we were there for, of course, was the fishing. Although the tigers weren't falling over themselves to get into the boat, some amazing fish were caught by all the boats in camp. The boats are comfortable, well maintained, and the guides knowledgeable and very helpful. Two of our highlights were a full day trip into the upper reaches of the river (the picnic lunch we took with was great as well) as well as doing a run through the rapids. On the lodge side of things -

It's a slice of heaven this place! We fished hard and caught some 12, 14 and 15 pounders. The tents are very comfortable, clean with great showers. The food was wholesome and delicious. All the staff were generally very friendly and the guides very accommodating. We will definitely be back to slay some more monster fish!
