About

The Kendal family own and manage both Footloose Trout Farm in Johannesburg, and Ngwenya Fishing Lodge in Zimbabwe. (Charles and Dawn Halsted are their partners for Ngwenya Lodge.)

Footloose Trout Farm is open Wednesday to Sunday for fishing, all year round. We cater for day-visitors, picnics, braais, parties and special occasions. We also host events and conferences for private and corporate concerns.

Ngwenya Fishing Lodge has a definite fishing season and independently caters for all the guests needs. Excursions are usually run on a week long schedule, with arrivals and departures on Fridays. We provide transport to and from the airport, boats with skippers, food and beverages, accommodation and serviced rooms including laundry.
