Sudan | Fly Fishing

Sudan was once one of the largest states in Africa; however, in July 2011, it split into two countries after the people of the south voted for independence. The government of Sudan gave its blessing to an independent South Sudan. Sudan is known as a unique dive centre for many years with the rich and diverse Red Sea. It is this same Red Sea that started to attract anglers back in 2013, however as tourism is relatively small, finding places to stay or base an operation that would be suitable for fishing was hard to find. It was with the introduction of liveaboard motherships for both diving and fishing that a whole new world opened up. Now it was possible to reach and explore virgin territory that had never seen any anglers which all resulted in Sudan becoming a hot new destination for saltwater fly anglers.

Nubian Flats | Fly Fishing | Sudan

Nubian Flats is home to some of the best saltwater fly fishing available with miles of untouched and unspoilt areas to explore. Previously these waters were inaccessible until now. With our partners, we can now offer two liveaboard fly fishing operations, one in the north and a longer trip in the deep south giving you access to some of the most virginal saltwater fly fishing around...

Additional Information

Most travellers come to Sudan for the ancient Nubian archaeological sites, less developed than Egypt’s but also more relaxed and atmospheric. There is also plenty of interest in the colourful culture of this transition zone between Arabic northern Africa and the Sub-Saharan rest of the continent. Sudan is a vast country but has only the faintest glimmer of tourism infrastructure, which is part of its charm as well as its challenge. Still, there’s no shortage of things to do and places to visit in Sudan. The capital city of Khartoum feels almost like its own country. In this relatively progressive place, you’ll find more women on the streets, some even without headscarves, and foreigners won’t usually get much of a second look. The city is cramped and bustling in some places and surprisingly modern in others, with an overall friendly and polite vibe. In Khartoum proper, the National Museum and the confluence of the Niles are both worth a visit and relatively nearby each other.

Sudan technically has more pyramids than Egypt, though they’re smaller and often less well preserved. If you’re going to see one pyramid site in Sudan, make it the pyramids of Meroë. Usually visited as a day trip from Khartoum or en route from Atbara, this site is the best-preserved and also the most famous pyramid site in Sudan. 

If you are interested in history and culture, there is so much more to do and explore more than enough to keep you busy for many weeks. Contact one of our experts to help you organise your perfect fishing holiday to Sudan. Before you know it, we will be flying you out to the excellent adventure & Saltwater fly fishing destination.
