Leave the stresses and the strains of city life behind you and head to the majestic mountains of the Drakensberg. At ZuluWaters Game Reserve in the charming Midlands of KwaZulu-Natal, you can marvel at the wonders of the wilderness, stay in supreme luxury and unsurpassed comfort and experience exciting fly-fishing safaris in the historic Bushmans River.
The one that didn't get away.
The Bushmans River is home to Brown Trout, Rainbow Trout and indigenous Yellow Fish. During the 1800s, British officers released 500 fingerlings of prize Loch Leven Brown Trout into the waters of three Drakensberg rivers. One of the original waters stocked was the Bushman's River, where the fish found a perfect natural habitat and have flourished ever since. Fishing in the ZuluWaters Game Reserve's 15km stretch of the Bushman's River, with its 37 deep, tranquil pools and interspersed rapids, is regarded by local fly-fishing enthusiasts as "an honour". Parts of this river have never been fished or accessed before.
Take advantage of the fly-fishing special offer - pay only R3500 per person at Shaka Lodge, which includes two nights luxury accommodation, all meals prepared by your private chef and a full-day river or still-water fishing plus guiding fees with one kept catch.
