Our Lake Nasser safari takes you on an all inclusive adventure into the heart of the Egyptian desert in search of the elusive Nile Perch. As the world’s largest man-made lake, Lake Nasser has arguably some of the best freshwater fishing in the world for both Nile perch and Tiger Fish.

There are also several species of Catfish; the legendary giant Vundu being the biggest. Two species of Tilapia also inhabit the lake and give a good account of themselves on a fly rod. This is a place where a small group of anglers have literally hundreds of square miles to themselves.
Lake Nasser is in its own right a truly fantastic wonder where barren desert scenery borders clear blue waters dotted with many rocky islands and outcrops. The whole area oozes peace and tranquillity and an unspoilt natural beauty the like of which is rapidly vanishing from the modern world.
For fishermen with a real sense of adventure and a yearning for those remote far off places our Nile Perch Adventure is sure to hit the spot.
