|Fishing Trips and Safaris
With the wide array of types of fishing available here in South Africa, your expertise can be perfectly utilized and included into your perfect fishing safari.
Whether your flair is deep water, still water, or fly fishing, still or salt water, our inland and coastal waters provide the ideal platform to concentrate on the types of fish that “catch” your interest, the ideal location for you to soak up the magnificent views as well as skilled fishing professionals.
The selection of where to launch your fishing expedition is endless. We are blessed to have a coastline that stretches across the cold Benguela current sweeps through from the western coast at the Cape of Good Hope and streams east to meet the warm Mozambique/Aghulas current. This is completely separate from all the rivers, streams, lakes and dams which are plentiful in our country.
At Safari Central we support responsible hunting and fishing for sport, therefore there is also the option of a catch and release fishing safari. By this we mean that your bait is set out as if you were to catch a fish as normal, but when the fish is hooked, you are welcome to release it once you have taken a look at the magnificent creature and recognized what species it is. The fish is then not harmed and it can carry on living in its habitat.
The biggest challenge (recommended for seasoned fishermen) is the angling of a variety of shark species from the shore and the catching of the popular copper shark which can weigh up to 200kg. This will be an unforgettable experience for any angler. Other popular fish species are Kob, West Coast Steenbras, Blacktail, Galjoen and Catfish, Tiger Fish, all types of Trout, and Kingfish, to name but a few.
Taxidermists are also widely available and can be arranged by request so that your fishing memory can be kept as a lifelong trophy.
Boat and charter hire is also very popular, therefore a bigger group can be accommodated.
