Day 1: We depart for Lesotho from Rhodes at 5:00 am, taking the spectacularly picturesque route over Lundeans Neck Pass, entering Lesotho via the Telle Bridge border post. Here we stop for coffee and rusks, arriving at our fishing destination at approximately 09:30 – 10:00. Anglers will begin to venture onto the rivers at around 10:30 - 11:00, enjoying a full days fishing until about 17:30 - 18:30. We will regroup back in the village for sundowners. Dinner will be prepared under the starlit African sky by the our guides and served between 20:00 and 21:00.
Day 2: The next morning sees a relatively early start with breakfast at 7:30, where after anglers will spend the day on the river, breaking at midday for lunch. The afternoon will be spent on the rivers until 17:30 – 18:30. We then return to the village and enjoy the evening around the camp fire, discussing the day. Dinner will be served between 20:00 and 21:00.
Day 3: We will breakfast at 7:30 on the third morning and fish until about 13:00, regrouping for lunch at the camp. We then journey back to Rhodes, arriving in Rhodes at about 18:00, unless we stay longer.
The guide(s) will travel in a double cab vehicle with all the gear and food required for the trip with a 4x4 trailer (if space is available, clients will be welcome to travel in this vehicle). Clients are advised to bring high clearance 2x4 or 4x4 vehicles to undertake the journey into this remote region of Lesotho. We travel in convoy to our destination. The trip takes more than 4 hours even though it is only 195 km from Rhodes. Due to the traveling time we suggest that you arrive in Rhodes the day before departure, accommodation and meals can be arranged. Alternatively we will meet clients at a town closer border post such as Wepener or Lady Brand, depending on the route that we would follow.
We live in Bosotho huts in a Lesotho village. These huts are beautifully clean and well kempt especially for us, but do not have electricity or mod-cons of any kind. Do not let this put you off, it is a truly incredible experience. Some destinations have huts with flushing toilets and hot shower but at cultural villages a hot shower can be arranged for a small fee of R10 per person and clean long drop toilets are close by.
The pristine rivers and mountain streams that we fish are often protected by the local chief/community leader and the fishing is outstanding and some destinations are world class. On these specific trips we target rainbow trout with the average size of the fish 15 - 26 inches. The guides we use to host the trip are THETA approved, R.E.F.F.I.S qualified guides.
All meals will be catered for by the our team: tea, coffee, some soft drinks, lunch-packs and dinners will be provided and are included.
