You will be collected by your host and outfitter at the 
Bram Fisher Airport in Bloemfontein (BFN) during the afternoon.

We will transfer by road to our first destination, 30 minutes from the Bloemfontein airport. 
Bloemfontein is the "pigeon capital" of South Africa. For the next three days you will be entertained with volume pigeon and dove shooting, testing the abilities of the most respected guns. Millions of pigeons and doves commute, twice daily, between the city to the ripening sunflower fields of the surrounding sunflower farms. It is here where guns ambush these humbling game birds under their flight paths to and from the fields. Pigeon shooting during the early season is hot barrel action, with guns firing in excess of a thousand rounds of ammunition per day! 
The shooting will commence on day 2 with an early morning departure to the shooting fields. After the morning shoot the guns will return to the lodge for a scrumptious brunch and some leisure time before departing for the afternoon pigeon flight. After the customary game parade the guns will return to the lodge for cocktails and a grand dinner. Day 3 and 4 will follow the same basic schedule.

On the fifth day, after breakfast, we will depart for our next destination close to Warrenton, on the banks of the Vaal River2 1/2 hours North-West by road,  to team up with one of South Africa's top fly fishing guides, pursuing the highly rated Smallmouth Yellowfish. The lower Vaal River is one of the best venues in South Africa to target hard fighting, indigenous Yellowfish on fly. Fishing will commence after lunch on day five. Day six and seven starts with an early morning departure for the morning beats, breaking for a late morning brunch and some free time after returning to the waters to fish the afternoon beat.

Apart from Barbel, Mudfish and Carp, one of the opportunistic fish species encountered on the Ultimate African Cast and Blast Safari is the Largemouth Yellowfish. There could be no doubt that the  is this apex predator in South African freshwaters. These fish are incredibly strong and can grow to weights of up to 21 kilograms! It certainly is a worthy opponent on fly tackle and targeting them presents many challenges. Not many anglers have the perseverance to target these majestic fish and have regular success in doing so. I use the word perseverance because any “largemouth junkie” will tell you that if you want to be kept humble, target these fish. Most often what worked today won’t work tomorrow and you will need to cover a lot of water and make more casts than you care to count. If you do this and keep on doing it, maybe, just maybe that fish of a lifetime will end up at the end of your tippet!

 The safari ends after a hearty breakfast on day eighth. Clients will be transferred to the Kimberley Airport (KIM) in Kimberley, a 1 hour drive South from our lodgings, during the course of the morning to catch your connecting flight to Johannesburg or Cape Town.

This package is inclusive of comfortable lodgings, guides, all meals, alcoholic beverages in moderation, all bird fees and rod fees, transport to and from the BFN and KIM airports and between the lodges and venues from day of arrival to day of departure.
