Orange River

In the mountainous deserts in the northwest corner of South Africa lies a remote flyfishing location featuring the country’s longest river.  The perfect back-to-basics adventure.

Battle it out with the hard fighting yellowfish along South Africa’s longest river, the Orange River, and enjoy the spectacular beauty of the Richtersveld National Park. With rapids and boulders dotted about this freshwater system, the Orange River will stir the adventurous spirit within you with every cast. 

Most of the fishing in Richtersveld is done whilst drifting in inflatable rafts, offering exhilarating flyfishing experience at varying fisheries along the Orange River. 

Ideal for families, friends, or groups of adventurous anglers, the Richtersveld flyfishing experience offers anyone who lovers nature a chance to breathe in the tranquillity of the mountains and the rippling waters. Settle down into a camping chair after a long day on the river and enjoy sundowners and good banter.
