Wildman Fishing Co is a specialist fishing company

For the past 9 years we have worked with a selection of the most pristine, productive and exciting tiger fisheries in Southern Africa. Three  things that we abide by when it comes to planning the perfect fishing safari are:

1. Past Experience

We only work with camps that we have guided at or fished extensively ourselves enabling us to give you specific information on seasons, lures and tactics

2. Exclusivity

We place a premium on working with remote, well managed or un-discovered fisheries to ensure the best experiences for our clients.

3. Timing

We have built up an understanding of which fisheries fish best at different times of the year depending on how you like to fish.
