"What happened next will stay with me to the end of my life. One second the lure was wobbling quietly towards me, perhaps 25 yards away. The next it was hit with unbelievable power...." Dr Barrie Rickards Ph.D., D.Sc. (Cambridge) "Kings of the Nile” Coarse Fishing

Our most popular fishing safari is the Lake Nasser Fishing Safari, an old favourite 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 fishermen; if you are traveling alone you will be welcome on this safari. If you are limited for time you can include a short fishing safari into your holiday itinerary for Egypt.

Alternatively, you can charter one or more live aboard fishing boats supported by a Mother Ship for your own private use and come on a Private Fishing Safari which can start or end on any day of the year and last for as long as is required. This safari offers a degree of independence which many anglers prefer and is perfect for a small group of friends or a family who would like to set out and explore the lake, at their own pace, on a fishing adventure which has few equals anywhere .

What Can I Expect To Catch?    We are often asked this question, fishing being fishing, who knows for sure? Most anglers can expect to capture at least one Nile perch of 50lb. beyond that, anything’s possible – perhaps even another world record? We do not like to promise Nile perch of 100 pounds plus - they are there and they are often caught - we have broken the last 3 (IGFA approved) Nile perch all tackle world records with fish of over 200 pounds.
It is almost impossible to answer the question “how many fish can I expect to catch in a day” or "how big will they be". Some days you might catch nothing at all and the next day might produce 8 /10 fish up to 100lbs or even more. Also, a lot will depend on the size of the fish that you are targeting – the bigger the fish you target the less you will catch.
We operate three styles of fishing safari, each with slightly different options. Or, if you are just passing through Aswan and don’t have enough time you can come for one day fishing.

Lake Nasser Safari
This safari is for anglers who would like to come on their own or with a friend and join in the atmosphere of a sociable camp with other fishermen. If you would like to book a single place on one of these safaris you are welcome.
You have two options ….
(1) Make your own arrangements to reach Aswan to join this safari. We will meet you at the airport, your hotel or Nile cruise ship and then transfer you to and from the safari start point on the lake for a 5 nights and 6 days fishing safari only.
(2) Come on a 7 nights & 8 day package which include all your arrangements (not flights) from your arrival in Egypt until you board your homebound flight.

Short Fishing Safari
Our short safaris are designed to be included into your holiday itinerary for Egypt. These shorter safaris give you the flexibility to choose how long you stay on the Lake. The minimum charter is two nights & three days.
3 days & 2 nights: Starts weekly on Saturday
4 days & 3 nights: Starts weekly on Tuesday
5 days & 4 nights: Starts weekly on Sunday
If you would like to combine your fishing holiday with visiting some of ancient Egypt’s ancient monuments then let us know; living in Egypt we are in a good position to offer you good advice.

Nubian Safari (Private Safari)
Charter one or more fishing boats supported by a Mother Ship for your own private use. 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 the lake. The Nubian Safari 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.

Single Travellers are welcome:

On two of our safaris the Abu Simbel Safari and the Lake Nasser Safari, pay for one place from the price of 2 sharing a live aboard fishing boat plus the single boat supplement. You then have the option of using the fishing boat and guide for your own personal use, or we can try to find a suitable partner; if we find someone then neither of you will pay the single boat supplement.

Discounts:
Family: Adults pay the full amount under the price band of the number of family members travelling together and each child who is 20 years old or younger will get a 20% discount off the same price band.
Father and Son or Daughter:     This has been popular with Dad’s who would like to take their son (or daughter) on a fishing adventure. To qualify for a discount the child’s age must be under 21 years of age. The child or children sharing a boat with Dad each gets a 20% discount from the selected safari price. The Father pays the full amount under the price band for 2 anglers sharing a fishing boat.
Organizer:     If you have a group of six or more adults coming on the same safari the ‘organizer’ who is the 6th person gets a 20% discount off the cost of their safari.

"Egypt was the trip of a lifetime - you most certainly know how and where to push the boundaries of sport; dare I say it unrivalled in my experience. Genuinely an incredible week epic in all and every way; I cannot begin to imagine what goes on behind the scene to pull a trip like that off but it was impressive. An execution of seamless effort and on behalf of all of us on the trip I congratulate you. Thanks for what has so far been the trip of a lifetime....that is, of course, until next time!" Stamford Galsworthy – Sipsmith Gin & Vodka – UK
