Sounds like a awesome trip planned. Never been there but as far as fish goes its a conservationists nightmare. Since the introduction of the Nile Perch nearly all fish life has gone. It has driven many species of cichlids (malawi fish) to or near extinction.

No idea what herps you find there but I'm sure someone else can help you with that.

Hope you enjoy your trip.
