Travel to Tanzania to Fly Fish for Tiger Fish
How to get there and get back:
For the American citizens, you will take an international flight from the U. S, connect somewhere in Europe or Africa, and arrive in Dar es Salaam, the capital of Tanzania. United, American, and Emirates all provide reasonably good schedules and connections. Upon arrival a representative will meet you at the airport and take you to your hotel in Dar.
You will stay one or two nights, depending on preference, at the Sea Breeze Resort and Hotel. This is an excellent facility located on the ocean. It has great views, a great pool, and good food.
The morning of your departure a representative will pick you up for a connection with a private charter. Cessna caravans are the plane of choice, and since no more than six of you will be on the plane, there is no weight restriction. The flight takes about two hours to arrive at Tengo Camp, where you will have lunch and start fishing. Expect elephants on the runway when you arrive.
On your return, you will depart Tengo Camp at about 11:30 AM. Most people take a red eye out of Dar that night, and a day room can be arranged for you at the Sea Breeze. You always have the option to stay over in Dar. All accommodations are arranged for you in advance
