Nubian Flats, Sudan: 2017

As the exclusive agents for the Nubian Flats in the UK and Europe, Aardvark McLeod will be returning with a group in 2017, dates to be confirmed.

This new and exciting destination lived up to the hype on Peter’s first trip there in 2015, it proved to be one of the finest trigger fisheries on the planet. The group also found good numbers of big bluefin trevally, aggressive boha snapper and more bus-sized GT along the edge than they expected. This stunning fishery in the Red Sea has been dived for the last 10 years on liveaboard boats, and the extremely experienced South African guides running this operation have been exploring new areas for the last two years. We are really excited to return to Sudan in 2016.

If you love adventure and would like to explore the next saltwater destination then why not join us? There are only five rods available.

Security and Privacy in Sudan

This needs to be addressed, as this is obviously a concern when it comes to liveaboard destinations. The Red Sea, West of the Djibouti, hasn’t had a single attempted act of piracy in the last five years. Combined with the fact that there is a big military presence along the Sudan, the risk of piracy is insignificant. This area has been a thriving Scuba diving destination for well over a decade; in which every year upwards of 5,000 European tourists visit the country for the sole purpose of scuba diving along the coast. There has never been any issue with regard to the safety of these clients. To put this into perspective, over the last decade this equates to 50,000 tourists, with zero safety issues.

Travel Expenses

The 2016 cost was €3,100 per person excluding international flights via Dubai to Port Sudan which are approximately £600. Accommodation is on a shared cabin basis with shared boat/guide.
