Offering a degree of independence which many lure anglers prefer
Charter your own private boat safari unit made up of one or more fishing or house boats with a mother ship in support. You will have the exclusive use of the boat safari unit which means you can make your own decisions about when to move camp and set the pace for your safari. This safari can start on any day of the year and last for as long as is required which is ideal for anglers who want the flexibility of deciding how long they spend on safari to explore the lake, at their own pace, on a private fishing adventure that has few equals anywhere.
Start on any day of the year and stay for as many days as required (minimum charter 2 nights & 3 days)
First Day of the Safari: An African Angler tour coordinator will meet you from any location in Aswan, the airport, a hotel or a Nile cruise ship and transfer you to and from the safari start point on the lake.
If you are flying into Aswan arrange for your flight arrival time to be no later than 8.30 or 9.30am to avoid missing valuable fishing time.
If you are coming from Luxor we can help with a road transfer between Luxor to Aswan, a three hour journey up the picturesque Nile Valley.
On Safari: The number of days you have booked for your Nubian Safari will be spent fishing on Lake Nasser. All meals and hot beverages are included on Safari.
Safari Ends: The safari ends at approximately 4.00pm when we will transfer you from the lake to any location in Aswan for your onward travel arrangements.
Live Aboard Fishing Boats
There are options for the style of fishing boat unit you can charter for a private safari, for more information click on Safari Boats & Guides in the panel below.
Fishing Boats: Most anglers choose the option of chartering fishing boats which can comfortably accommodate up to three anglers; the ideal fishing combination is two anglers sharing one fishing boat.
House Boat & Fishing Boat Combo: Having two boats is the ideal way to include your family on a fishing holiday, while they explore the lake in a comfortable house boat, you can go fishing. This combo also works well for small groups of friends; the more of you who share a house boat the less expensive the safari becomes for each person. A house boat sleeps four comfortably in two cabins but can also accommodate up to six persons if two sleep on the sun deck and enjoy the unique experience of sleeping under the desert stars. The house boat has a small galley and there are also on board toilet and shower facilities.
Family Discount: The best way for families to come on a fishing safari is to charter the House Boat & Fishing Boat Combo for your own private use. While some of you go fishing the rest of the family can explore the lake in comfortable house boat. 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.
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.
