Egypt – Nubian Safari

A Nubian Safari offers a degree of independence, which many anglers prefer. This safari is ideal for two anglers or a small group of friends who like to fish together. They can charter one or two fishing boats and then set out to explore the lake at their own pace on a fishing adventure that has few equals anywhere. A small supply boat, without a toilet and shower, carries the requirements for a comfortable camp, with a cook and his helper who will take care of cooking great meals and keeping the beer cold.

The minimum number of anglers needed for a Nubian safari is two in one boat and the maximum number is six in two boats. The Nubian Safari starts every Tuesday from Aswan (or Graf Hussein) and ends on a Sunday. You can come on a safari for as many weeks as you want.

The safari prices listed below includes the Arrival & Departure Package If you prefer to make your own arrival and departure arrangements then please deduct £95 from the cost of the safari.

The fishing boats have comfortable on board facilities. There are two bunks each with a standard-size single mattress, which also provides spacious daytime seating. At night this area can be enclosed by canvas, creating a cosy enclosed sleeping area with a 12v lighting system.

NUBIAN SAFARI FISHING GUIDES

One of the most important requirements for a successful safari is a good guide. We take this seriously and devote time and effort in selecting and training our guides.

To become an African Angler guide requires a minimum of 18 months training as an assistant guide before we consider giving them command of a fishing boat. Our guides spend a lot of time on safari and as a result they all have an excellent knowledge of Lake Nasser.

When we select our guides we look for what we call a hunting instinct and a genuine feel for fishing.
The personality of the guide is also important, as is their ability to communicate; all our guides are fluent in English.

NUBIAN SAFARI STAFF

African Angler safari staff and fishing guides are all Nubians who are the people that used to inhabit the Nile Valley before it was flooded by Lake Nasser. The Nubian people have a proud and rich heritage that dates back to long before the pharaohs were in control of ancient Egypt. To this day they still maintain distinct traditions, architecture, and their own language, even though they had to migrate into Egypt or south to the Sudan after Lake Nasser swamped much of their traditional homeland.
