The river is flowing, the fish are biting, and cold Kilimanjaros are fast disappearing down the gullets of avid fishermen, here at Majestic Rivers. With the guests pouring in this season, we’ve decided to serve more than just good food, fishing, and banter. 

We’ve made some epic changes to our camp, upgrading us from ordinary to extraordinary. 

Don’t believe us? Check out what’s been happening at Majestic rivers over the last few months. 


Ta-da! We’ve added outside furniture to each of our canvas meru tents, and wooden cupboards to the spacious and airy rooms. We have fans for the hotter days and your tents and laundry are cleaned daily. And just like that, it’s starting to feel pretty luxurious around here.

Meet Ramy, our new chef in camp! While his specialty is French cuisine, he knows a thing or two about cooking almost anything. Pancakes for brekkie? Ramy’s your man. Want a wrap for lunch? You won’t get a better chapati than Ramy’s. Feeling peckish after a day of fishing? Ramy-touille is what’s up. Majestic Rivers can cater to all dietary needs, just let us know beforehand - you can count on chef Ramy to cook you a cracking meal. 

Burgers and Chips from SCRATCH!


In September, we welcomed Stuart Harley back to camp (did we just hear someone shouting YAY!?). Coupled with Chris Dedekind, the dynamic duo had a jam-packed week of exploratory fishing. They caught Catfish, Vundu, Yellowfish, Alesteas and of course Tigerfish. They explored the river and fished all mediums, from bait fishing to flyfishing - and were successful in all. Shughuli falls were, as always, a favourite spot for Yellowfish and an afternoon dip (in safe waters, with or without cozzies) to cool off.

Boat Trips 

Heading up the river, the guides have reported spectacular sunrises, sunsets, and game sightings this month. The hippos have been exceptionally busy - popping up to say hi more than usual. Of course, the cooler boxes are filled with plenty of ice and cold drinks, and the lunch packs and snacks are as delectable as ever. In other words, everyone’s been taken good care of, whilsts out on the water.

These guys haven’t been upgraded because it’s impossible to find better. We have our usual guides on site, Lionel and Alasdair, who are both passionate and experienced fishermen. Alasdair has a particular interest in Yellowfish and Lionel has extensive Tiger fish experience from the Okavango Delta.

Alasdair smiling happy!
