Destination X Africa

Discover real Africa with Destination X Africa. A professional travel company, they specialize in trips off the beaten track all over the continent. Based out of Hoedspruit, you’ll explore the rich offshore waters of South Africa and Zimbabwe, going after the catch of a lifetime.

Who better to guide you than an experienced, local captain? Captain John Harris has over 25 years of fishing and exploring behind him, and he knows South Africa’s fishing grounds like the back of his hand. A fly fishing specialist, he’s also comfortable big game fishing, and promises to do his utmost to get you on the biggest fish.

Step aboard the 22’ Cobra Cat catamaran and head to sea. The spacious vessel is restricted to 4 guests to allow you all to fish at once. She comes fitted with all modern amenities, and a private toilet for all your needs. The crew will even prepare a full lunch and plenty of drinks, so sit back and enjoy the ride.

The boat also features everything you need for a productive day out. Boasting downriggers and outriggers, you’ll troll a wide array of water, while the fighting chair will give you the edge over the fish on the end of your line. If you fancy yourself on the fly, then there’s plenty of gear for all aboard too!

Head out first thing in the morning and spend all day on the water. Wherever you go, you’re in for an incredible fishing experience, with some of the world’s most sought-after fish biting at the end of your line. Go after Marlin, Sailfish, and Wahoo for the thrill of big game fishing. While landing a monster Tuna or delicious Bonito will provide plenty of meat for dinner.

With trips spread over 3 days, you’ll have 3 meals per day. Try to make it that extra bit special by landing your own fish! Anything you don’t cook, the crew will clean and fillet for you to take onwards. They’ll even pick you up from the airport or in the city, so there’s really nothing for you to do! Book a trip with Destination X Africa and take a walk on the wild side!
