Experience capturing the largest “wild” fresh water fish of your life with an angling adventure you will never forget
Egyptians have been fishing for Nile perch since the dawn of civilization and most anglers who visit Lake Nasser for the first time experience catching some of the largest fresh water fish they have seen, making for an unforgettable experience.
Lake Nasser, one of the world’s largest manmade lakes, is situated in the middle of the largest and driest deserts on our planet. The only way to reach the fishing areas is to join a small boat safari.
Our most popular fishing safari is the Lake Nasser Fishing Safari, an old favourite designed for anglers who would like to come on their own or with a friend and then join in the atmosphere of a sociable camp with other fishermen; if you are traveling alone you will be welcome on this safari.
If you are limited for time you can include a short fishing safari into your holiday itinerary for Egypt, refer to our Short Fishing Safari .
Alternatively, you can charter one or more live aboard fishing boat supported by a Mother ship for your own private use and come on a Private Fishing Safari, which can start or end any day of the year and last for as long as required. This safari offers a degree of independence which many anglers prefer and is perfect for a small group of friends or family who would like to set out and explore the lake, on a fishing adventure which has few equals anywhere.
If fishing isn’t your thing or you want to spend more time exploring the natural wonders of the Lake, take a look at some of the Eco Safari options also available.
Anglers have the chance to catch the largest natural ‘wild’ fresh water fish of their life and the lake also provides outstanding sport using light tackle targeting the hard fighting Tiger fish. Most of the big Nile perch are caught trolling because this method takes your lure over a larger area putting it in sight of more fish. A great plus of fishing on Lake Nasser is the accessible shore fishing – over 5,000km to explore.
