Heli Fly Fishing

Fly in to fly. Few pastimes evolve into obsession and none can derive such satisfaction irrespective of result. The anticipation of the first nibble at your line along with a scenic helicopter flight to the banks of the mighty Orange or Vaal River culminates into sheer excitement for what lies hidden beneath the surface. Fly in to any river or dam in the Northern Cape and test your skill against the Largemouth and Smallmouth Yellowfish, Carp, Barbel or Bass.

The idea started a few years ago and after some negotiations, is now available to tourists. The tour includes a helicopter flight (View official website of Kriek Helicopters) from Mattanu to some of the best yellow fish flyfishing spots in Africa. Some of these fishing spots are situated a mere 8 minutes from Mattanu. Qualified quides are used to enhance the fishing experience and they provide food for the day. Fishing tackle can also be hired if required. After a long day of fishing, guests are transported back to the luxurious lodge where they can relax in the pool, enjoy some good wines or a good Cuban cigar from the collection.
