Zulu Safaris

Zulu Safaris is here to take you on an unforgettable deep-sea fishing adventure. Based in Durban, this experienced crew runs their trips year-round, so you can join any time you’re here. Captain Gordon has been fishing in the area for years and he’s a pro at two things: catching fish and teaching his guests how to catch fish. So don’t worry if you don’t have any previous fishing experience, you’ll learn everything as you go along.

You’ll be fishing on a 30’ Seasport that accommodates up to 8 guests. There’s enough space for everyone to feel comfortable, but to avoid entangled lines, only 4 people can fish at the same time. The boat is powered by twin 150 HP Evinrude engines and reaches the maximum speed of 25 knots. Besides navigational electronics, the boat also features a live bait tank, outriggers, and downriggers.

Take a 4-hour, 6-hour, or a 10-hour trip, depending on how far off the coast you want to go or simply how long you want to practice and have fun. Target Mahi Mahi, Barracuda, Tuna, Snapper, Cape Salmon, Shad, and many more.

There will be live bait and fishing equipment on board, and you can keep your catch. The team will work hard to put you on the hottest bite. Even though you will be fishing with a lucky crew, there is no guarantee of fish. Just sit back, relax, and enjoy the adventure!

Zulu Safaris welcomes you aboard!
