The Cunene is a large perennial river that forms part of the boundary between southwestern Angola and Namibia.
For those fortunate enough to make a trip down to Cunene, will not only be treated with one of the most spectacular drives in Africa, but will also be rewarded with possibly the best Kob fishing in the world! Catches of up to 100 kob per person have been made, with even bad Cunene days surpassing most fishermens best days elsewhere. Cunene is truly one of the last frontiers in Africa.
As Cunene falls within the Iona National Park, it is not open to the public to fish. Flamingo Lodge assists with an ongoing Fisheries Research program which allows us access to the region. This gives fishermen the opportunity to not only experience an untouched environment but to also give something back!
