Hi...the rivers in the Eastern Cape...

Gamtoos River - 80 km from Port Elizabeth towards Cape Town.

Sundays River - 30 km from Port elizabeth towards East London.

Swartkops River - 10 Km from city center Port Elizabeth.

Krom River - About 130 km from P.E. towards Cape Town...

Fish River - About 180 km from PE on towards East London.

There are a lot more river like the Kariega etc all between Port Elizabeth and East London....


You can get accomodation / or a camping site at all of the above ...I tow my boat and spend weekends or even longer on my boat...fresh water to brush my teeth...and a face cloth bath and a boat is rigged out with a gas stove...a 12 volt chiller...and a small portable TV and a bucket for you know what ??

To the other chap that is having wheel bearing advice is to turn the back seal around on the wheel hub and fit grease nipples to your bearing cups...then when you grease your wheel bearing it forces the old grease ( and any water out and replaces it with fresh grease ) As a precaution I carry spare wheel bearings with me in my tool kit and the necessary to fix any problem on the road.

I was in Port St Johns in June...river very muddy and silting up...its more ariver for grunter in late June July...but trust me more fish come out of our rivers in the East Cape and much best Grunter is 6.85 kg / Shad 4.5 kg / cob 38 kg / Garrick 11 kg / Skate 48 kg / Gurnard 3 kg / Skip Jack 4.8 kg / Steenbras 14.6 kg not to mention the rats and mice...all caught in the above rivers on 4 kg line.

I had a Interceptor cabin boat and sold it last month and bought a Flamingo with a wet deck and I am busy rigging it for river estuaries and for going to sea to fish bay league competitions....almost done and should be finished by the end of the its a lot of work when you dont have help..

What motor size are you running, the v6 of mine is also a bit heavy on fuel

I have a Jhonson 100hp, V4. Not too bad on the fuel consumption, but going flat out does tend to drink fuel.

Doublecab has an excellent list there, i wish I had the time to fish those rivers! I am trying for Knyasna for easter next year, hope it works out.

Thanks guys, and doublecab, I will make contact with you as soon as I'm ready to start planning the trip if you dont mind this. Seems to me youve done it all down in the east.

I second the Segfield area your options are endless. Swartflei can be great and you can go all the way up to the mouth and then a short walk up to the beach for the kids. Knysna 25km away and is great fun can fish, ski and when thirsty stop for a beer at one of the pubs. To mix things up you have Groenflei for some of the best bass fishing but will need electric motor for that.
