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 permit, own equipment, plus bait. Permits are not available on site and much be purchased before arrival. Guests must arrange their own permits which are available from any post office.
