The Makangoa Community Camp is a one of a kind operation focusing on walk and wade fishing for yellowfish and trout in the mountain country of Lesotho, Africa. The camp is located high in the mountains overlooking the Bokong river and is a unique project aimed at providing sustainable tourism while conserving their natural resources. The community involvement not only ensures the pristine nature of the valley but also dramatically enhances the angler’s traveling experience.
Founded in 1824, Lesotho (fondly referred to as the Kingdom in the Sky), is one world’s smallest countries and is entirely surrounded by South Africa. Lesotho is also the country with the world’s highest average altitude and boasts thousands of kilometers of virgin, gin-clear streams. Accordingly, some compare it to Africa’s version of Patagonia. The beauty of its harsh mountain wilderness is astounding, and reason enough to spend time fly fishing in the little-known mountain Kingdom of Lesotho. Dramatic basalt cliffs, big skies, bearded vultures and the occasional boy herding cattle create the backdrop for a truly unique and enriching fly fishing experience. If you live for wild places and are prepared to go the extra mile to reach them, then the Makhangoa Community camp might be for you.
