Fisherman's-eye view of Bumi Hills Safari Lodge & Spa
The world's biggest fresh water fishing tournament has just ended at Lake Kariba, Zimbabwe. The 52nd edition of the Kariba International Tiger Fishing Tournament (KITFT) again attracted hundreds of competitors from several countries, including the UK and USA.
And the winner is.....Rodney Mackay of Team Nissan was the individual winner with 23 weighable fish totalling 52,6 kgs. Charter Africom retained the overall team trophy with 58 fish weighing in at 130.6 kgs. Once again many of the teams headed - successfully - straight for the most productive fishing grounds around Bumi Hills Safari Lodge, including Starvation Island and the Ume River.
The biggest fish ever caught in the 52-year history of the event was 16 kgs in 1962, while a Goliath tiger caught in the Congo has weighed in at 20 kgs. Every year more than 1,000 people, comprising fishermen, support staff and journalists, converge on Lake Kariba for KITFT.
Book your team in for next year...and maybe book your family in to Bumi Hills Safari Lodge & Spa so you all keep in close touch!
