Kimberley Yellowfish Flyfishing Safaris

The largemouth yellowish is the largest scaled fresh water fish in South Africa (comparable to the maisa of north India) while the Kimberley area is accepted as the premier destination for both largemouth and small mouth yellowfish in South Africa. Considering the fact that yellowfish are essentially only found within South Africa, further enhances Kimberley’s exciting position.

This selection of world class flyfishing on 2 local rivers and Kimberley’s easily accessible central position within South Africa; linked to the absence of malaria and crocodiles, are all favourable factors to consider.
