Inland Fresh Water Fishing Safaris - Trophy Hunts - Adventures - Tours 


Safari Guides - Trophy Hunts - Adventures -Tours. There is nothing in the world better than going on safari in the open lands of Africa.

South African rivers are not as large as those of other traditional fishing countries and normally are of stream size with good rock bottoms making for excellent sight fishing.

Trout - At the beginning of the previous century a large number of rivers were stocked with mainly rainbow trout and large mouthed black bass and today these populations are self-sustaining. The food availability in these rivers and streams are not as diversified and prolific as in the rest of the world and thus the average size of fish is not as big as in those areas, but the numbers may well be better. These rivers sources start at about 9 000 feet above sea level and have very pure, high quality water.

Yellow fish - Apart from the introduced species there are nine (9) yellow fish (Barbus) species. Yellow fish in general are faster and better fighters than trout and offer good fun. The Orange-Vaal largemouth yellow fish is South Africa ’s largest scaled freshwater fish and can reach a mass of up to 44lbs (22 kg) or more! Of the nine mentioned species we mostly target two species, the Vaal-Orange small mouth and the Vaal-Orange largemouth of the Eastern Free State province.

Tiger fish - This specie is one of the most aggressive of all freshwater predatory fishes. The “take/strike” of one of these will have adrenalin pumping through your veins. Most of the time tigers are caught on spinning equipment and with live bait, such as tilapia. Tiger fish is well known as a worthy opponent. What is not generally known is that South Africa has a very good tiger fishing venue with quantity numbers. The local record is 18.2lbs (8.3 kg.

The following types of Fishing Safaris are offered:
