Africa Fishing Holidays Amazing Fish-Rich Waters

Remote & Wild Fishing Adventures

The second-largest continent in the world, Africa covers 6 percent of the earth’s total surface area and 20 percent of the total land area. Straddling the equator, it encompasses numerous climate areas and a whole host of different landscapes, from the Sahara Desert and the Atlas Mountains in the north, the Skeleton Coast of Namibia in the west and the Nubian Flats of Sudan in the east. 

The Mediterranean Sea surrounds Africa to the north, the Red Sea to the northeast, the Indian Ocean to the southeast and the Atlantic Ocean to the west. Its total coastline spans an incredible 30,500 kilometres and is hugely varied, featuring sandy beaches, vast lagoon systems and estuaries that penetrate deep inland. It’s also home to some of the world’s longest rivers, including the Nile, Congo and Zambezi.

With all this water, it’s no surprise that Africa offers a wide variety of fishing opportunities for the travelling angler. Whether you enjoy saltwater fly fishing, big game, popper and jig fishing or shore fishing, a fishing holiday in Africa can cater for your needs. Off the coast of Namibia, you’ll find the worlds largest population of monster Bronze Whaler Sharks; in Tanzania, you’ll find the trophy Tigerfish, and in Madagascar, fishing from Nosy Be, some of the best popper and jig fishing on the planet. That’s without even mentioning the world-class saltwater fly fishing available on the Nubian Flats in Sudan and the unbelievable bluewater fishing opportunities in Guinea Bissau, Gabon and South Africa.
