Nile Perch Heaven is an English-owned company offering fishing safaris on Lake Nasser in Egypt.

The fishing

The fishing on Lake Nasser is a mixture of trolling and shore fishing. The principle target will be Nile perch but you can expect to find tigerfish and catfish along the way. In terms of tackle, Penn GLD Mk 2 rods (with reels to match) are supplied, along with boxes full of lures and everything else you’ll need. Shore fishing equipment is provided although it is recommended that you bring your own. Fly-fishing is also encouraged in the summer months – again, bring your own gear.

The facilities

The two fishing boats are both functional and comfortable. The front cabin, offering welcome shade during the day, can also double as a three-berth cabin at night. Both are equipped with fish-finders and walkie-talkies to keep in touch with the other boats. Supply boat “Courtney” is fitted with a kitchen, a basic private toilet/washroom/shower cubicle and a large front cabin that sleeps eight people if needed. The top deck has a covered eating area with a large table (enough for 10 people) where you can enjoy freshly prepared meals on your return from fishing.

    From the minute we hit Luxor myself and my 5 fishing buddies were put in safe hands with their main guide and manager Ibby (Ibrahim) The lake itself is one of the most wonderful sights I have ever had the pleasure of visiting.
    The boats were fully equipped with all of the tackle you require for a years fishing on lake Nasser, we was only there for 6 days!
    The staff are very freindly are very serious about getting you and your friends a good sized nile perch.
    I am now going to be a regular customer of Nile perch heaven, I really cannot complain about any of the trip, I really can’t!
