Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: South Africa fishing holidays


We educate our guests on wise water usage, as South Africa is a water scarce country and where possible utilize rain water harvested at our base in Port Alfred for drinking as well as re-using drinking bottles throughout. We also educate our guests on the which products to buy from the locals which are sustainable and locally produced such as not supporting ocean harvesters with under size sea creatures for consumption.

Important ecological concepts are imparted to our guests and self-sustainability is our theme throughout. We only print onto paper when absolutely necessary at our base and re-use paper back and front before being used as firelighters on our trips. We refill our printer cartridges at our base at least 3 times each, saving on the plastic which is required in producing these cartridges.

Through training of our local guides we also send a conservation theme back into the local communities with an understanding of conserving the local surroundings as it leads to economic input through employment and tourism.

For this fishing specific trip we respect bag and size limits and enforce that with our guests as well as making sure that all participants have the necessary fishing licence obtained from the local authority which contributes to law enforcement of these marine reserves.


Only local guides from the Eastern Cape are employed by us, fulfilling an important role in the different communities and our guides understand the local culture and tradition and take our guests through remote villages while educating our guests on the customs and traditions of the Xhosa people. Visiting different villages and bringing guests to these remote areas enables the locals to sell their special curios and interact with guests from foreign lands while supporting them economically.

We support local accommodation establishments that uplift the local communities through employment and tourism – such as Kob Inn, Mazeppa Bay Hotel, and Bulls Inn.

The local children on the wild coast, over the years of sparse tourist visits have obviously been given sweets as a gift in return for photo’s of them…When travelling with us we prefer giving fruit to the children with the same result for the guests but more healthy for the children and we are attempting to change the childrens cry of ‘SWEETS!’ to ‘FRUIT!’…
