Note - ZAWA will charge an ADDITIONAL daily angling fee of US$15 on anglers fishing in National Parks. Having a recreational fishing permit DOES NOT exempt you from this addition ZAWA fee.
To obtain your fishing licence you will need to visit the Fisheries Department in Chilanga with a copy of your ID. They will fill out a bank deposit slip which you then need to take to the Indo-Zambia Branch in Chilanga and deposit your fee(s). Then return with the stamped deposit slip to Fisheries and they will only then issue your recreational angling permit.
