Goliath Tiger Fish

NEW: Take a look at our dedicated Goliath Tiger Fishing Site:

Our new lodge newly built fully furnished catering for all your needs in the best traditions of an old colonial period.

The Neuville family have a tradition in the Congo hunting down the most sought after predatory fish in the world, the Goliath Tiger fish or ‘Mbenga’.
Daniel who ran the operation pre 2008 sadly past away last year due to a long term illness.

Raymond his brother has worked tirelessly to re build a new lodge, new boats, to a high standard. They are now open for business and we can offer our new and past clients a little luxury in chasing down the most ferocious of fish.

A typical day
- Breakfast from 0500 am.
- Fishing from 06.15 hrs to 12.00 hrs snacks served at 09.30 hrs
- Lunch at 12.30 hrs.
- After lunch at 14.00 hrs You are free to fish from the bank area ad we suggest specific beach casting techniques with live and dead baits.
- Dinner is served at 19.30 hrs, but again you may wish to fish on into the night.

The build of a Goliath tiger fish (what you’re up against):
The powerful jaws display a set of 32 razor sharp teeth fully visible on the exposed jawbones. 14 teeth set in the lower Jaw and 18 on the top jaw; some have 34 teeth with 20 upper and 14 lower. On live specimens the smaller teeth located at the back of the jaw near the mandible joint are concealed by the gums leaving only 10 teeth on the upper jaw and 8 on the lower, clearly and fully visible ‘Mbenga with teeth in excess of 3 centimetres have been caught, the longest teeth are usually the second set on the upper jaw. The teeth are well exposed, set at the edge of the jaws with minimal lips, and like two knife blades slicing in opposite directions they produce a clean cut as the jaws close, teeth perfectly interlocked. ‘Mbenga’ is thus able to attack prey many times its size, recently a report of an attack on a huge catfish was reported. After the attack the catfish was still alive rolling in the water and neatly and surgically cut in half, it was pulled from the water; the half portion tail section weighed 15 kilo. Whether the jaws are opened or closed, The Goliath always has 18 teeth on display and gives a ghoulish and diabolic appearance, like a shark it has replacement teeth that are positioned behind its existing teeth in the cavities within ‘Mbengas’ jaws.
