Some of the best fishing for fresh water fish you can encounter in South Africa

Blackthorn Safaris pride ourselves in having access to some of the most picturesque river systems and water sources. Our fishing guides are experienced in many fields and are always happy to point out and name many different species of birds, insects and wildlife that we encounter whilst out fishing. Boats, motors and waders are provided and a cool box filled with alcoholic and soft drinks to quench your thirst during the day.

A weeks fishing with Blackthorn Safaris consists of 6 days fishing and 7 nights accommodation. We provide a mix of all species or specific species depending on your needs and wishes. Boat trips down the river with guides and boats are provided, as well as fishing from the bank or even wading in the shallows to present a bait in front of feeding fish. Lunch time braai’s (bbq) out in the bush are very popular and bring a new experience to the trip.
