Cape Town Travel Guide

Fishing

Hooked on Africa. Based in Hout Bay Harbour, this operation is in one of the richest fishing grounds left in the world today. If you're keen to take to the open ocean for some deep-sea fishing, you'll have plenty of choices, as South Africa has excellent game fish, such as dorado, yellowfin tuna, and broadbill swordfish. The company offers private, full-boat charters of a 32-foot catamaran for a full day of deep-sea fishing. Call to inquire about current rates and to see if there are any organized trips you could join in lieu of a full-boat charter. 021/790–5332. www.hookedonafrica.co.za. From R10,000.

Inkwazi Fly-Fishing Safaris. In the mountains, just an hour or so away from Cape Town, you'll encounter wild and wily fish in wild and wonderful rivers. The season runs September–May and Inkwazi Fly-Fishing Safaris offers escorted tours, all the equipment you'll need, and plenty of good advice. Regulations allow them to guide no more than two anglers, and trips are frequently just one person. 083/626–0467. www.inkwaziflyfishing.co.za.
