Founded in 1824, Lesotho (fondly referred to as the Kingdom in the Sky), is completely surrounded by South Africa. At 30,550.00 square kilometres, it is one of the world’s smallest countries and one of the few remaining monarchies in Africa.
Fishing Tour operators spent numerous months exploring Lesotho’s most wild and remote rivers in search of the ultimate trout waters this beautifully harsh country has to offer. And what they have found is a river which offers arguably the finest sight fishing for trout Southern Africa has to offer.
If you live for wild places; not a weekend at the syndicate wild, the kind of wild that reminds you that there are still forgotten corners of the planet to be fished. If you are prepared to go the extra mile to reach virgin waters, and the boutique sight fishing they offer, then trekking a remote river in the Lesotho highlands is for you.
And if sight fishing to wild trout was not enough, the beauty of this harsh mountain wilderness is astounding, and reason enough to spend time trekking through Lesotho. Surrounded by drastic basalt cliffs and big skies, the Bearded Vulture and the occasional herd boy and his flock will be your only neighbours during the trek. Nights are enjoyed under a blanket of brilliant stars and days filled with clear rivers, feisty fish and unforgettable scenery.
