Welcome to Lake Nasser

Desert Lake Experience

Desert Lake Experience
Lake Nasser is a perfect place to relax for a few days and get away from the hustle and bustle of tourist sites in mainland Egypt.

Lake Nasser is a beautiful fresh water lake with spectacular desert panorama and an impressive biodiversity which is enhanced by the lake being on a major migratory route for millions of birds on their annual journeys between Europe and Africa. The residents are nomadic herdsmen who graze their flocks on the sparse vegetation at the edge of the Lake. There are also several important Nubian archaeological sites the most notable are the magnificent temples at Abu Simbel.

The fish populations of the original river system were presented with a huge lake to live in and have since thrived in their new habitat, especially Tilapia and their predators, Nile perch, Tiger fish and huge catfish.

Small Boat Safari

Small Boat Safari
A small boat safari is similar to a traditional African safari where 4x4 vehicles are used for travelling, while support trucks carrying the equipment and safari staff go on ahead to set up comfortable camps. Our safaris are the same except we use House Boats supported by well-appointed Mother Ships instead of land vehicles.

Days are spent fishing for massive Nile perch or exploring this picturesque desert lake in your own live aboard boat then at lunch time and for overnight stopovers meet up with your Mother Ship where meals and drinks are enjoyed in relaxing social surroundings.

In 1993 we had the privilege of being the first to pioneer small boat safaris on Lake Nasser.  We specialize exclusively on Lake Nasser and as a result have an unparalleled experience of this desert lake.

Desert Lake Experience

Nile Perch Fishing

Lake Nasser is famous for its huge Nile perch and there is also the added bonus of exciting lighter tackle action targeting the hard fighting Tiger fish or night ledgering for the big Vundu and Bagrus catfish.

Most anglers will catch the largest wild fresh water fish of their life and have an angling adventure they will not forget.

“Another interesting experience is shore fishing… Where else, for instance, can you work artificial lures from the shore anywhere in the world, either in fresh or salt water, and encounter wild fish in the 20lb to 100lb category. Nasser is quite unique in this kind of experience, believe me!”   John Wilson MBE UK’s best known angling writer and TV personality
