Short Fishing Safaris

Flexibility to choose how long you stay on the lake

Short fishing safaris are for fishermen who have limited time and would like to include a short fishing safari into their holiday itinerary for Egypt with flexibility to choose how long they stay on the Lake.

The minimum charter is two nights & three days.
3 days & 2 nights: Start every week on a Saturday
4 days & 3 nights: Start every week on a Tuesday
5 days & 4 nights: Start every week on a Sunday

First Day:       We will collect you from any location in Aswan, cruise ship, hotel or airport and then transfer you to the safari start point where you will be welcomed by your guide. Lunch & dinner served on safari

On Safari:       The numbers of days you have booked for your safari are spent exploring Lake Nasser. Each day there is a different night stop usually in a quite bay with a sandy beach and spectacular Desert Lake vistas. All meals and hot beverages included on the safari.

Safari End:       The safari ends at approximately 4pm when we will transfer you back to your hotel, cruise ship or the Aswan airport to connect with your onward travel arrangements. Breakfast and lunch are served on the safari.

Live Aboard Fishing Boats

There are two options for the fishing boat unit you can charter for your safari; live aboard boats are for your own private use. In each case you share a mother ship for night stops, your meals and resting up with a cold beer. For more detailed information refer to Safari Boats & Guides.

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. House Boats are not designed for trolling but are often used to stop-over on an island to go shore fishing.

Solo Anglers are welcome:       Pay for one place from the price band for 2 sharing a fishing boat plus the single anglers supplement. You then have the option of using the fishing boat for your own personal use, or we can advertise to find a suitable partner for you to fish with; if we find someone then neither of you will pay for the fishing boat single supplement.
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.
