Fishing is a great passion of ours and we offer some exciting opportunities. From my personal favourite of catching Black Marlin off the coast of Mozambique to fly fishing for yellow fish in the streams of the mighty Orange River in South Africa.

Our fishing trips or side trips are specialized and offer a combination of great fishing along with activities like deep sea diving, island hopping and local markets and experiences in some of the most beautiful settings in Africa.

Fishing in Mozambique is like fishing in an undiscovered paradise with accommodations in top-notch luxury lodges situated on white sandy beaches.

Freshwater Fishing

done as a day trip to target yellowfish n the Orange river system. Fishing is done in remote areas on the river in streams and rapids. Fly and lure fishing is used.

Off-shore Fishing

fishing for Black marlin takes place of the coast of Mozambique. We fish the Bazzaruto Archipilago. Black marlin are very proliferous in these waters and a number of ‘’granders’’ are caught every year.

Photo Safaris

Photo Safaris or side trips are perfect for planning something extra apart from hunting.

White Lion Safaris offers a variety of side trips and photo safaris.

It is the perfect getaway if you are travelling with your loved ones.

Important FAQ’s

What you need to know


Citizens of the USA and most European countries will only require a 90 day visa for Namibia. South Africa and Mozambique do not require visas. For Namibian visa application check the visa rules that apply to your passport type at this link: https://namibia.visahq.com

Temporary gun licence

After arrival, the hunter walks to the arrival hall to fill out an arrival form and then proceeds through Immigration. Once through Immigration, go to baggage claim and retrieve your luggage, then find the small office (back toward Immigration) with a sign that reads “Arms and Ammunition.” Here, you will identify your gun case and fill in a simple form that will serve as your temporary gun license and permit. All you need is your gun information and the address of where you will be staying, which White Lion Safaris will provide to you. After filling out your form and retrieving your gun case, proceed through Customs. Ricus, your outfitter will meet you outside the door to drive you to your hunting area.

Clothing and Gear

Dark green or brown clothing is best, as are boots with soft soles for quiet stalking. You’ll only need a couple of changes of clothing as laundry is done daily at most camps. Bring a wide-brimmed hat, sunblock, good optics, and a jacket for cool mornings and evenings.


Most professional hunters recommend rifles in the .300-caliber family for plains game and .375 for dangerous game, but the most important thing is to bring a rifle you are familiar with and can shoot well.


Tips are appreciated at most safari camps; in addition to the professional hunter, tracker(s), driver, and skinner(s), there are usually staff members at camp who handle cooking and cleaning and other chores and help to make a hunter’s stay pleasant. The professional hunter or outfitter can advise the hunter how much is appropriate to tip each staff member.

Trophy preparation

Typically, animals are skinned at the safari headquarters and all skins are cleaned and salted; skulls and horns are cleaned and buried in salt. After a couple of days, the skins are hung to dry, cleaned once more, and folded and stored in a skinning shed. Skulls will be cleaned and placed on a rack. Before leaving camp, it’s a good idea to ensure the skulls and skins are properly tagged with the hunter’s name and contact information.


Once the hunter departs, or sometimes at the end of the season, trophies will be taken to a taxidermist for professional cleaning and dipping, which is required for export. The taxidermist then contacts the hunter for instructions regarding preparation and shipment, and to arrange payment for these services. The taxidermist then contacts a shipping agent, who will handle the permits and shipping to the hunter’s home country, again after contacting the hunter. Hunters should check the latest regulations in order to make arrangements in advance if they are hunting species that require CITES permits or special export or import permits from the hunter’s home country. Many export and import requirements for these species have undergone dramatic changes in the past couple of years.
