Offering a degree of independence which many anglers prefer
Charter your own fishing safari unit - a mother ship, fishing boats and or house boats with a safari crew and guides who will take good care of you. You have the exclusive use of this unit and can make your own decisions about when to move camp and set your own pace for the safari. You can start this safari on any day of the year and come for as many days as you like.
This safari offers an opportunity for reasonably competent fishermen to do their own thing; your guide will show you the best fishing areas and then between you decide on strategy and how long you want to spend in each area; perfect for two anglers or a group of friends who would like to set out and explore the lake on a private fishing adventure which has few equals anywhere.
Starts on any day of the year for as long as is required (minimum charter 2 nights & 3 days).
First Day of the Safari: On your arrival in Aswan 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 from Cairo 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 to Aswan from Luxor we will help you arrange the short 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 three options for the style of fishing boat unit you can charter for a private safari.
1) Fishing Boats: Most anglers choose the option of coming on a safari in one of our standard fishing boats which are divided into two sections, cabin and living area and then the fishing decks. They have two full-sized single bunks and at night the cabin can be enclosed by canvas, providing a cosy sleeping area.
2) Stealth Boat: You can charter an alternative fishing platform which can fish hot spots more quietly and efficiently than the larger fishing boats. Whilst our live aboard fishing boats are also excellent fishing platform a stealth boat has the advantage of being smaller and less obtrusive. They can be quietly drifted or rowed over underwater promontories or past rocky drop-offs, allowing fly anglers to cast without the commotion caused by a bigger boat. Stealth boats carry two anglers and are skippered by an experienced fishing guide and can easily be towed by your fishing boat between fishing grounds.
3) 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. A house boat sleeps four comfortably in two cabins; combined with a fishing boat which sleeps two persons this unit can comfortably accommodate up to six persons. The house boat has a small galley and there are also on board toilet and shower facilities. For more detailed info’ refer to Safari Boats & Crew
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.
