Facilities - Big Game Fishing

Known throughout the world as the jewel of the Indian Ocean, Zanzibar has a romantic and colourful history of seafarers and explorers. But it is just as famous for providing some of the most exhilarating and challenging big game fishing anywhere in the world.

Guests at the Beyt al Chai can experience big game fishing from any of our two beach resorts. The experience will give you a choice of two bountiful fishing grounds. The first is the water between Zanzibar and its smaller sibling island, Pemba, home to excellent and world famous big game fishing grounds. The alternative is a trip further south to the less trodden waters of Mafia Island (yes, there is such a place!) and Latham Island, providing fishing grounds which are almost untouched as only a few local fishermen take the fish.  With large schools of barracuda, wahoo, king fish and giant travelli in the area all year round, and seasonal visits from many other species, the fishing off Zanzibar is an experience you will never forget.

Zanzibar is fortunate in having superb fishing almost all year round. But there are two definite peak seasons: the Yellowfin Tuna Season which runs from August to October and the Marlin Season which runs from December to Mid March.

There are professional big game fishing outfits close to the resorts and our Guest Relations Office will be happy to provide you with current information as well as make bookings for you.
