FISHING TOURS IN AFRICA

Are You Planning To Go Angling In Africa? Scroll Down For Details..

Africa offers far more aquatic predators than those found in terrestrial outback locations. The deep seas that surround most of the continent are home to the world’s largest, feistiest and speediest predators — billfish. With weights up to 1,000 pounds and top speeds of 65 miles per hour, billfish offer a thrill-a-minute African fishing vacation for experienced anglers, oceanic adventurers and curious first-timers. AfricanMecca Safaris organizes fishing in top discerning destinations in Eastern and Southern Africa. Sailfish is the fastest billfish on the planet, with speeds that compare to the fastest land animal — cheetah. In close second for top speeds are swordfish. Marlins, though, are the largest of the billfish and much-desired by anglers because of the ferocious fight these aquatic monsters put up when hooked. Billfish are only some of the massive marine species that roam the waters. For the utmost sports fishing holiday, Kenya is a prime destination that hosts ILTTA World Championships and other competitive fishing events in Watamu, Malindi Lamu, Kilifi and Mombasa. In addition to billfish, the waters off the coast of Kenya offer deep sea fishing for yellowfin tuna, barracuda, kingfish, giant trevally and dorado. Off the shores of Tanzania around the coast of Dar es Salaam, Pemba, Mafia and Zanzibar Islands where fishing is also regulated under “tag and release” programs. Shortbill spearfish , almaco jacks, tiger sharks, ruby snappers, dog-toothed tuna bonitos and other species including all three types of marlins (blue, black and stripped) are found here on this part of the East African coast.
In addition to deep sea fishing tours in Kenya and Tanzania, and for an equal chance to catch the larger marlins of Africa, we also recommend fishing along the coast of Mozambique between Tanzania and South Africa where giant black marlin are often found around the islands of Benguerra and Bazaruto Archipelago. When combined with Quirimbas Archipelago near Pemba of Mozambique, the area offers sharks, queenfish, queen mackerel, tuna, big wahoo, rays, dorado, skates and many other fish for your high-intensity marine travel experience. At the southern end of Africa, the chilly Atlantic and tepid Indian Ocean meld into a vibrant watery habitat that supports varied marine life and attracts predatory species from around the globe. Just off Cape Point is a deep sea canyon where mighty yellowfin tuna hunt, as well as wahoo, sharks, bluefin tuna, marlin, skipjack tuna and other desired game fish. Even closer to shore, the fishing is quite spectacular. Smaller game species are found in abundance, so even the seasoned angler enjoys the experience. Common species for waters closer to the shoreline include Cape Snoek, southern yellowfin tuna, Cape salmon, gully sharks, kob, bronze whaler, rays, skates, cow sharks, ragged tooth sharks and so many others! Whether you choose offshore or inshore charter fishing in South Africa, you are sure to have an impressive angling trip! If high-pace vacation activities are the centerpiece of your ideal African ocean safari, take the adventure offshore! Some of the world’s top-notch games fishing destinations are found just off the Indian Ocean shores! At AfricanMecca Safaris, we specialize in deep sea fishing excursions that are sure to delight even the most discerning angler!
