With popper and lure fishing fast becoming the biggest technique practised amongst the travelling angler, we have searched high and low to be able to offer you some of the finest and sometimes out of the ordinary holidays this wonderful planet has to offer. Gabon has been on our radar for a while now and it is with great pleasure that we have now got the opportunity to be able to offer you the complete package to one of the best rock, surf and estuary fishing the world has to offer. If you take any activity and push it to the wildest edge, you create magic. Sportfishing along the pristine coastline of Gabon is definitely one such activity. You need to fish wild and remote waters, to create your own magic, may well be what drives you.
Gabon has the longest stretch of untouched coastline left on the African continent, and along with a massive estuary system rich in nutrients, offers the avid saltwater fishermen the opportunity to experience the thrill of targeting the numerous and unique species of West Africa with both spin and fly tackle. The abundance of large and aggressive game fish, all eager to attack a well-fished lure, is complimented by Africa’s most pristine tropical rain forest which creates the backdrop to this one of a kind saltwater fishing experience. Sette Cama camp, situated on the Ndogo Lagoon at the southern boundary of Loango National Park is a destination like no other.
One of Africa’s largest lagoon systems draining into the tropical Atlantic ocean is home to aggressive Jacks (Whitefin and Jack Crevalle), giant African Threadfin, African Cubbera Snapper, Tarpon, Senegal Kob, and Guinean Barracuda all eager to attack a well-placed lure or bait. Many of these species grow to more than 50 kg. The estuary (by boat) and adjacent beaches provide unparalleled fishing suited to anglers who like to cast artificials or a combination of lures and natural baits and even flies when conditions are right. So if you are looking for something a little different for your next adventure but still want to take huge fish then this place must be up there on your bucket lists. Gabon really is the wild place for fishing, these areas that you fish are inside are all part of a thriving eco-system that will see you have an amazing fish-filled holiday surrounded by some of Africas most fantastic wildlife.
It’s not all about the fishing either, we can organise guided walks in the nearby Loango National Park (made famous by National Geographic and BBC) where you will get the chance to see Chimpanzees, lowland Gorillas, Red River Hogs, Forest Sitatunga, and various forest duikers and Monkey species. If this list of exotic animals was not enough then you have got every chance of seeing Forest Elephants and Forest Buffalo talking their morning strolls along the beaches.
Whilst fishing in Gabon you will be guided along the way by local fishing guides who will be on hand to offer any advice that you may need to help you make your fishing holiday the best it can be. These guides have fished the local area for many years, each having some valuable insights into where the fish will be and at what state of the tide they will be there.
