Brief

Mbenga tiger fish can be found especially in the DR Congo. There is no equivalent fish species in the rest of the world! - Not so much because of its shape, but its impressive jaws and the sheer brutality of its strike. THIS is a monster

Tour Detail

Have your next fishing trip in the Congo. The Mbenga, Crocodile, and Goliath Tiger Fish can be found especially in the DR Congo, terrorizing other local fish populations, and even eating crocodiles and human children. Anything short of a Great White Shark should not make an attempt at swimming alongside a Tiger Fish. The “Demon Tooth, Monster of the Congo River” is the ultimate sport fish, easily going past 100kg in consistently reported encounters by local fishermen, and with no trouble topping the strongest angler's pull force. The treacherous black river, “Mai Ndombe,” enters the majestic Congo River, and in it you will discover five distinct and ancient dinosauric species of Tiger fish found in Africa’s mightiest rivers. Here is your chance to reel in the meanest fish on the planet.

Angling Adventure in Africa's Last Frontier

CTT offers this fishing trip with camping on the Congo River. Experience the Goliath Tiger Fish known as the Mbenga, in places where great fishermen realize their dreams. Our English-speaking guides for fishing are primarily large traditional fishermen of large riverfish. They will provide you a unique experience fishing on the River Congo, professionally and profoundly.

Goliath Tiger fish belong to the family "Characidae" There are five distinct species, two of them that are most interesting for fishermen occurring in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Goliath remain carnivorous fish that eat other fish - hence it is probably the emperor fish of the river, unless something bigger is discovered later... 

With incredible aggression by its use of super strength, with its impressive and flexible jaws,with teeth that cut so easily through prey like a sword; his speed lets him close on his target of distant vision in the water ... 

The largest catch by one of our customers was 40 kg and the took him 15 minutes of fighting before the fish was in the boat.

We advise you to be well prepared in terms of equipping for this trip. It is a Battle...
