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.
Fishing Boat & Stealth Boat Como: Stealth Boats are an alternative fishing platform which can fish hot spots more quietly and efficiently than larger fishing boats, they can be quietly drifted or rowed over underwater promontories or past rocky drop-offs, allowing 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 or house boat between fishing grounds.
House Boat & Stealth Boat Combo: Provides you with comfortable facilities to relax in after a hard day ‘fly flinging.’ House boats sleep four comfortably in two twin cabins, there is also on board toilet and shower and a small galley for making coffee or tea. Ideal for a small group of fishing friends and also popular with those who want their family to join in the adventure; while the family explores the lake in a comfortable house boat, you can go fishing in a stealth boat with your fishing guide.
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.
