Egypt – Lake Nasser Safari

This safari is designed for anglers who would like to come on their own or with a friend and then join in the atmosphere of a sociable camp with other anglers. Anglers who would like to book a single place on a safari are very welcome; we will guarantee your place and find you a partner to fish with.

The safari unit is made of two or three fishing boats, supported by a supply boat (mother ship) that acts as a mobile camp and rest area. The supply boats are well equipped with built-in kitchen, toilet, shower and large iceboxes to keep food and drinks cold.

The Lake Nasser Safari starts every Tuesday from Aswan (or Graf Hussein) and ends on a Sunday and you can come on a safari for as many weeks as you want.

An experienced English speaking fishing guide captains each fishing boats. Our fishing boats have been designed to provide an ideal fishing platform as well as having comfortable on board facilities.

Each boat has two bunks – each with full-size single mattress. This area also provides spacious daytime seating. At night the cabin can be enclosed by canvas, providing a cozy sheltered sleeping area. Each boat cabin has a 12v lighting system.

Many anglers enjoy the unique and peaceful experience of sleeping under the desert stars on the wind-protected upper deck.

Most people are pleasantly surprised at the standard of food on safari. The style of cooking is a blend of western taste merged with Nubian cuisine, which is superb, so if you are planning on losing weight then think again!

Cairo or Luxor is five to six hours flying time from most major airports in Europe and then there are regular connecting flights to Aswan.

The cost of the safari does not include the flight to Egypt and then on to Aswan. World Sport Fishing Ltd would be happy to arrange flights if required

The price of a safari is divided into three parts.

1. The flight to Egypt and then on to Aswan.
2. The Arrival & Departure Package, which covers your arrival in either Cairo or Luxor. The package provides all assistance at airports, transfers and two nights in a four star hotel at the start and end of the safari.
3. The price of the safari, which includes transfers to and from Aswan airport (or hotel) to the safari start point.

Most international flights to Egypt arrive in the evening when there are no onward connecting flights to Aswan. This means a night has to be spent in either Cairo or Luxor before travelling on to Aswan early the next day.
