Full Tour Details

Over 7-days you’ll enjoy the search for trout in well-maintained lakes and rivers, surrounded by unspoiled mountains. Begin by checking your gear or renting what you need in Durban and then setting off for the countryside leaving the city-life behind you. After some river action on the second day, you take a 1-day break from fishing to visit Lesotho via the world-famous Sani Pass. You’ll then settle in to your rustic mountain fishing lodge for three days in order to find some trophy trout. Your last day will start with an early fish before you head back to Durban with a stop along the way for a well-earned lunch.

Tugela Tours is South Africa’s only escorted tour operator specialising in luxury golf, safari, fly fishing, and beach tours. Based in KwaZulu-Natal, their activities and locations are hand-picked for the finest scenery in which to create once-in-a-lifetime experiences and memories.

This woman-only tour is open to individuals or groups of up to six, where you’ll have access to our experienced local fishing guide. If you’ve fished for years and have all the gear then you that’s great. However, if you’ve arrive in Durban with nothing more than a keen attitude, Tugela Tours’ experienced team will kit you out with everything on a rental basis. Halfway through the tour, you’ll go in on a 4x4 drive for cold drink and a passport stamp to remember at the world's highest pub in Lesotho, via the world-famous Sani Pass.
