This very special, pristine, ecosystem offers an extraordinary fishing experience amid an untouched African wilderness and is a must for the adventurous fly angler. Staying at Gassa Camp, a seasonal tented camp on the banks of the Faro River, anglers can target Nile perch, tigerfish and yellowfish. The 2023 season – the fifth at Gassa Camp – has drawn to a close and you can read the ‘end of term’ report from our colleagues here.

All trips are planned around the prime moon phases for Nile perch and tigerfish, resulting in a two week fishing and two weeks rest rotation. Due to limited group size, and the intimate nature of the tented camp, this trip is ideally suited to groups of like-minded anglers and friends.
