Egypt – Lake Nasser – Nile Perch – Choice of Safari

Choice of Safari

Lake Nasser, one of the biggest manmade lakes in the world, is situated on the Nile south of Aswan in the middle of the largest and driest deserts on our planet. The only way to reach the fishing areas is to join a boat safari. Boat safari units are made up of a mother ship which provides all the requirements for a comfortable camp. The days are spent fishing and exploring the lake in a live aboard fishing or house boat returning to the mother ship for meals and overnight.

We operate two kinds of boat safari, each offering slightly different options. Or, if you are just passing through Aswan and do not have enough time to come on a proper safari, you can come for a day fly fishing returning to your hotel or Nile cruise ship in the evening.

If you would like to combine your fishing holiday with visiting some of ancient Egypt’s monuments let us know we are in a good position to help you arrange your itinerary.

Lake Nasser Safari

The Lake Nasser 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. Single anglers are welcome; we will try to find a suitable partner for you to fish with, if we are not successful you will have the fishing boat for your own use.

Nubian Safari (Private Safari)

A Nubian safari consists of one or more fishing boats supported by a Mother Ship. This safari can start or end on any day of the year and last for as long as is required which is ideal for anglers who would like to have the flexibility of deciding how long they want to stay on a fishing safari.
The Nubian Safari also offers a degree of independence which many anglers prefer and is perfect for a small group of friends who would like to set out and explore the lake, at their own pace, on a private fishing adventure that has few equals anywhere.

Come day fishing any day of the year. We will collect you from your hotel or cruise ship at 8.00am and transfer you to your boat for full day fishing.
