The Barkly East and Rhodes area of the Southern Drakensberg is world famous for its fly-fishing with over 200kms of Mountain Rivers filled all year around with wild trout and yellow fish in the summer months.
The actual fishing is only part of the experience. Whilst walking our rivers you will have the chance to explore wonderful gorges with stunning rock formations and bushman paintings. With over 230 species in the area the bird life is also prolific. To make your day out at the river complete we can provide a picnic lunch. For the more adventurous we can arrange for you to camp overnight in a riverside cave, so you really can fish day and night if you want to.
If you would like to add variety to their holidays, (or keep the rest of the family occupied so that you can fish in peace), Wild Mountain Adventures offers the opportunity to combine your fishing holiday with other activities.
Options include 4x4 trails, scenic drives, river rafting, horse riding, hiking, mountain biking and bird watching. All of these activities can be booked as day trips or combined to create multi-day adventure trails staying in charming farm stay accommodation. Contact us so that we can tailor your perfect trip to Wild Mountain country.
