An exclusive 5 day salt water angling adventure hosted by Drakensberg Ventures.


Day One: Upon arrival at Port St John's on The Wild Coast the group will settle into the comfortable accommodation at Cremorne Estate. The estate is situated on the jungle covered banks of the wild Umzimvubu River and nestled between the soaring cliffs of Mts. Thesiger and Sullivan. It is said that during a silent spell you can hear your heart beating off the cliff faces. We will spend the day relaxing in the majestic grounds of the estate, and a leisurely trip to town to obtain the necessary angling permits and a look around. We gather for sundowners, a chat with local anglers Paul Kimble and John Costello on conditions and flies followed by dinner.
Day two and three: After an early start we head south to the Umngazana mangroves, estuary and river mouth at the seaside hamlet of Madageni. Our base here is Codesa Guest Farm, a working dairy farm with first class facilities and accommodation. A jetty below your room is the start to your fly fishing adventure through the mangrove channels by boat, travelling to the estuary and Umngazana River mouth and beach. It's a place that is stunning in the extreme, teeming with fish and wildlife and surrounded by natural splendor. These waters are generally clear and hold species such as Big Eye Kingfish, Garrick, Skipjack, Perch, Grunter, Mullet, Kob, Pick-handle Barracuda and River Gurnard. We spend two days and a night here.
Day Four and Five: Early to rise for a last cast in the Umngazana River, breakfast and we venture further south to the deeply rural village of Mpande and the eco friendly haven of The Kraal.
At this beautiful place the ocean is your soundtrack, the beds are aligned to the stars, the resident rooster your alarm clock, a signal to grab rods and head for that sunrise season at the water.
This pristine stretch of coast has the twin rivers, the Mpande and Sinangwana, both are tidal at Spring highs and are suited to wading. The river banks are wide sand stretches with clear shallow expanses and deep channels of prime fly fishing water. Species are the same as encountered in the Umngazana River. We enjoy two days and a night at this gem of a place on The Wild Coast.
During our travels all meals will comprise full English breakfasts, packed lunches (while angling), three course dinners and beach braai's. Tea, coffee and rusks for the early risers and sessions at the water. This is a tour for fly fishermen who will know all the tackle requirements for salt water angling. As for flies, bring all the major saltwater patterns, white and blue, white and charteuse and pink work.
Your guide, local angler Paul Kimble, will have local flies and poppers available.
