If truly 'home is where the heart is' then I am actually living at
Anglers Paradise right now!
As I'm typing this, I must be sitting in the African Bar and sipping
some of Zyg's wine!
As soon as you arrive at Anglers Paradise, you are welcomed with open
arms, and then follows a week of sheer bliss.
Relaxation beyond measure. Adventure around every lily pad. And the
most fun you can have with a rod in your hand!
Hazel and I have been coming here every year since our first visit,
and if anything, the holiday just keeps getting better and better every year.
The villas are cosy, clean and well looked after, filled with angling
items to make every fisherman feel at home.
The African Safari Bar is a delight. Packed to the brim with some
fascinating items, which just seems to get larger and larger in quantity every year! A place to come after a hard days fishing and laugh and chat with the other anglers.
The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and always willing to
take their time and help you make the most of your week. And Zyg, Rose, Zenia, Joe and the family welcome you in like you are one of their family.
The fishing is just magnificent! I mean, where else in the country,
or even the world, can you find lakes full of beautifully vibrant ornamental fish for you to catch? Sparkling Koi, Orfe and Golden Tench.
And whopping great Carp and Catfish that just seem to get bigger and
I have lost count of the amount of wonderful fin-perfect fish I have
caught here, and lost count of how many times I have had, literally, a whole lake to myself, to fish at my pleasure.
The whole lake area is clean, and tidy and well maintained, and
planted carefully with all sorts of plants.
And there is wildlife everywhere! Bloody nosed beetles, massive
elephant hawk moth caterpillars, lizards, kingfishers, hobbys, red kites...the list could go on and on.
I will keep going back year after year.
Because I want to.
Because I love to.
Because I have to.
Because I need to.
If there is a down side to Anglers Paradise (and there certainly is
one) it's that there is not enough time in one week to sample all of it's delights!
It's awful that, eventually, you have to go home.
It truly is an angler's paradise!
