Our fishing policy is tag and release. This Orange river fishing is only open to the eco fisherman that enjoys sports fishing. Every fisher on this trip will be supplied with an inflatable raft, paddles and a cooler box. Also, everyone gets a dry bag for their personal possessions.  Our guide will accompany you on your fishing adventure.

We have a small group policy on our fishing trails.
