The Maputaland coastline is renowned as one of South Africa’s most popular fishing destinations. Guests can try their hand at surf fishing or fly-fishing. Thonga Beach Lodge encourages guests to “catch and release”. However, for all types of fishing you will need to bring your own equipment, plus bait. Permits can be organized by the lodge, but the guest must physically accompany us (90 minute drive) to the nearby Parks Board with proof of ID. Deep sea fishing can be arranged ahead of time. The fishing charter leaves from Sodwana Bay which is approximately a 1,5 hour drive in a 4×4. This is booked with a private charter company in Sodwana Bay and is not available over the December and Easter holiday periods. We can assist with booking this activity and transfers subject to availability. Please discuss your requirements with our Reservations Office who will gladly help with these arrangements.
