Offering a degree of independence which many people prefer

Starts any day of the year 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.
1) If you are flying into Aswan on the day your safari starts arrange for your flight arrival time to be no later than 8.30 or 9.30am to avoid missing valuable fishing time.
2) 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 Boat
For your live aboard boat you can charter either a House Boat or a Safari Boat which you have for your own exclusive use. Each boat is skippered by an English speaking Nubian guide with local knowledge of the wildlife, places of interest. Your live aboard boat is supported by a well-appointed mother ship for night stops, your meals and resting up with a cold beer. More information Safari Boats & Crew
House Boats are a perfect choice for families or a group of friends, the more people who share a house boat the less expensive it becomes for each person. House boats have two spacious cabins sleeping four people comfortably. They are fitted with a toilet & shower and a small galley with amenities for making tea or coffee; there is also an ice box filled with cold drinks. The sun deck has a comfortable shaded area which is ideal for relaxing and sun bathing. A house boat is perfect for exploring the lake, big enough to be comfortable but also small enough to reach shallow areas, where you are more likely to see wild life and get close enough for that memorable photograph.
Safari Boats are smaller than the house boats and were originally designed for fishing. Ideal for those who would like to try their luck for Nile perch or Tiger fish while on safari. Safari boats have a cabin with two large single bunks which sleep two people comfortably. Safari boats can accommodate three people with an extra mattress on the top deck under the desert stars which is a unique and peaceful experience; it never rains in the desert. Unlike the house boats, safari boats do not have an on board toilet and shower, these facilities are provided for on the mother ship.
Family Discount: The best way for families to come on a safari is to charter a house boat for their own private use. 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 friends coming on the same safari with you take advantage of our organizer discount. For six or more adults who book a safari together we will give the organizer (or the sixth person) a 20% discount off the cost of their safari.
