5-Day Orange River Fishing

5-Day Orange River Fishing

This Orange River Fishing trip is one of the best ways to go fishing on the Orange River. This fishing trip is combined with river rafting to get from one fishing spot to the next. Our fishing adventure will allow you to access some of the best fishing opportunities along the river. You will be able to access areas that are only reachable by raft.

Our fishing policy is a tag and release. This Orange River fishing is only open to the eco fisherman that enjoys sports fishing. We supply all rafting equipment . Inflatable rafts, kayaks, paddles and a cooler box. Also, everyone gets a waterproof bag for their personal possessions.  Our guide will accompany you on your fishing adventure. We do not cover more than 38km in our trail. This allows us to spend more time fishing and setting up ideal basecamps.

We have a small group policy on our fishing trails.
