Fishing in South Africa

Quite simply a vast country: 1,500 miles of coastline, huge numbers of rivers, lakes and streams and endless numbers of fish to fill them – South Africa is a great destination for the travelling angler. Deep-sea fishing charters operate out of many of the coastal ports, with marlin, tuna, dorado, sailfish, sharks and barracuda among the favourites. Of if you fancy some freshwater action, you could try stalking the huge trout that abound in South Africa’s mountain streams or head off in pursuit of the super-charged tigerfish. Choose from a list of South Africa fishing lodges, guides and charters below or browse the map to find your desired location…
