A fishing safari on Lake Nasser is a journey into the wilderness, a return to nature, and a chance to catch one of the biggest freshwater fish in the world. It is also a chance to enjoy camping under the stars and the incredible experience of being out in a real wilderness. Fishing on this isolated desert lake is sure to provide you with some of the best fishing you will have ever done, and almost certainly you'll catch the largest freshwater fish of your life. Lake Nasser is in its own right a truly breathtaking natural wonder, where stunning desert scenery borders clean blue waters, dotted with numerous rocky islands and outcrops. The whole area has a feeling of peace and tranquillity and of untouched natural beauty, the like of which is rapidly disappearing from the modern world. For anglers with a sense of adventure and a hankering for those remote, faraway places our Lake Nasser boat safaris are sure to hit the spot.
You start this amazing holiday of a lifetime in the bustling city of Cairo where, after a good night's sleep, you catch an early morning flight to Aswan.
Your fishing adventure will start from Aswan dam, and from here you will make your way up the lake with all the fuel, food and water you require for the full length of your tour. For this as we say, is the true meaning of a safari. Within 2 hours you are out of mobile phone signal, no television, or radio and no electricity. Just you your fellow anglers and guides completely at one with mother nature for the rest of your tour. What awaits you is pure nature and heaven, you can fish as hard or as little as you like.
You have a full 12 days fishing on the lake before making your way back to Aswan for the return flight to Cairo. Whilst back in Cairo we take you on a tour of the Gisa plateau to experience the timeless beauty of the Great Pyramids and enigmatic Sphinx. These amazing monuments, more than any other, are a true testament to the power and wealth of Pharaonic Egypt. Your next stop is the Egyptian museum, with its vast array of ancient artefacts, including the priceless Tutunkhamun display and intriguing mummy collection.
Finally we transfer you to the airport for your flight home.
Note: Between October and April each year, direct charter flights from London Gatwick to Aswan are an alternative option, subject to availability.

"Thanks for organising such a great trip for us! We all had an amazing time and it really opened our eyes to the country, both ancient and modern. Our guide, Emad Hussain was wonderful – very knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating and willing to put up with four archaeologists (including one Egyptologist) for the 12 days. I’m just downloading my 1200-odd photos now..."
