Fresh Water & Salt Water Fishing Combo

A Fisherman’s Dream Trip, Tigers At Sabie Game Park And Game Fishing At Santa Maria

Combine the ultimate Tiger Fishing challenge with one of Mozambique’s most extraordinary fishing destinations, Santa Maria. The area offers some of the country’s best game fishing with Kingfish, Dorado, Sailfish and Marlin a plenty.

The local skipper will take you to his favourite fishing spots, some within the marine reserve where “Catch and Release” is the order of the day. 


There are a number of accommodation options available, amongst others, we recommend you can stay Casa Karibu at Santa Maria, as timing is everything and the fishing is tide related.

From Santa Maria the fishing grounds are 15 minutes by boat, depending on weather and sea conditions. Transfers by boat from Maputo to the island takes around 2 hours. Alternatively you can charter a fixed wing plane or helicopter for the short flight to the island.     

Casa Karibu is an exceptional privately owned holiday house situated on the beautiful Santa Maria Peninsula in Mozambique. Strategically positioned on one of the front sites of the bay, the views of Inhaca Island, the twinkling evening lights of Maputo and the magnificent vivid orange sunsets are spectacular.

Accommodation at Casa Karibu is suitable for 8 guests. The main house has airy bedrooms – all with sea views and beautifully styled in cool summery hues. Tall glass sliders lead to the enormous deck with breath-taking ocean views and the large sparkling pool which is situated on the lower deck, amidst ancient milkwood trees and a lush dune forest.

Casa Karibu has direct access to the pristine, secluded beaches fringed by the safe and warm waters of the tidal bay. A truly perfect destination for families and groups of friends wanting the ultimate beach holiday in tranquil, breath-taking surroundings – from the comfort of a really amazing beach house.

The Boat

“Safina” is a 10 metre Sports fisherman boat which is fully authorised to navigate in Mozambique waters and has in fact done two trips to Durban. The boat has radar, auto pilot, VHF radio and toilet. The boat is fully kitted out for fishing.
