Six freshwater angling associations in Namibia

Anglers as well as commercial and subsistence fishers are keen on Mozambique tilapia. The species is also bred in aquacultures.

Sporting the oldest desert on earth, Namibia is known as a desert country. Perennial rivers are few and far between, found only on the southern and northern border, but where there is water there is fish and where there is fish there is angling. While the Orange River in the south and the Kunene in the northwest attract a small number of fishing enthusiasts, the riverine landscapes of the northeast are a freshwater angler’s dream. A large variety of fish is found in the Okavango, Kwando, Linyanti, Chobe and Zambezi rivers. 

In the central parts of the country there are the large artificial lakes – Hardap, Von Bach, Swakoppoort, Oanob and Tilda Viljoen – where anglers can cast their fishing rod and participate in angling competitions. 

Six angling associations are affiliated to the Namibia Federation for Freshwater Anglers (NFFA).
