Tours and Non-Hunting Activities

It often happens that we get a request from a few people in the group that they would like to do something different, other than hunting, while on safari with us. The world famous Garden Route, running from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town is our choice of route for tours. It is a magnificent piece of coastline stretching over 700km in length. You can choose the length of tour you would like to take. We would recommend a minimum of 4 days to really enjoy this part of our country. Below we have made a list of the main attractions along the way.

Cape Town

Fishing Trips

Whether your hunt is completed or you would like to take a break for a day or two during your trip we offer day and multi-day fishing trips that will keep you entertained for hours. We will take a short trip down to the small coastal town of Port Alfred where we will be based and from where we will start our charter.

We offer inshore as well as deep sea fishing year round, with the best times for deep sea fishing is usually from May through to August/September.

Bottom fishing species include cob, sand fish, black mussel cracker, cape salmon to name just a few and for the slightly more adventurous we can go deep-sea trawl for tuna in the warm Mozambique current.

The days will be rounded off with fresh sea food at any of the many quaint seafood restaurants in and around Port Alfred.
