Fishing Safaris in Lake Nasser:Located in southern Egypt, Lake Nasser has been a desert for millions of years. The lake was created by the construction of the Aswan High Dam. The lake can supply a catch of up to 80,000 tons of fish per year (300 tons per day!)..“It is not just fishing, it is the whole place; the contrast between the desert and the big lake with nothing between them. There is no where in the world to compare. The fishing, too, is quite amazing”. Overhead the sky is vast, bright blue and crystal clear, while the dark, rolling water below spreads away to the horizon, where barren rust-colored peaks rise up on the shoreline.The water is clean, fresh and safe for swimming.If you are looking for solitude, silence and space, Lake Nasser is the place. The extensiveness and silence are the two things that strike you most strongly. This is one of Egypt’s remote and wild places. The areas where we fish are extremely remote and wild as well. The Lake Nasser Safari is a must for those who enjoy “getting away from it all”. You will be completely cut off from all forms of civilization.For those interested in more than fishing experience, Lake Nasser boasts 17 Ancient Egyptian and Nubian temples. It is full of resident and migratory birds, mainly ducks, the infrequent quick look of crocodiles, and monitor lizards. For those who have a sense of adventure and appreciate an outdoor life, the safari is a dream come true.
