Make sure to head over to our YouTube Channel to see for yourself how good the fishing at Sette Cama in Gabon is.

Where is Sette Cama Lodge

The camp and location of Sette Cama Gabon fishing trips have the longest stretch of untouched coastline left on the African continent. Along with a massive estuary system rich in nutrients, Sette Cama 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, Gabon is situated on the Ndogo Lagoon at the southern boundary of Loango National Park is a destination like no other. 

How to fish in Gabon

One of Africa’s largest lagoon systems in Gabon fishing trips 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 giant fish, this place must be up there on your bucket lists.

It’s not all about fishing on your Gabon fishing trips. 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. 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.

Gabon Fishing Trips & Guides

Whilst fishing Sette Camma Gabon fishing trips, 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.

Flights were a pain and takes a long time to get there however we soon forgot about the journey once at the stunning camp. wow, what a location the guys there have done a great job. Now the fishing - I didn't realise how fast paced it would be and next time I will be more prepared and a visit to the gym is essential. Running up and down the beach chasing fish is hard work but I enjoyed every minute. Thanks for your hard work

Hi Paul thanks for helping to organise this trip. we were very surprised how well we were looked after, the food at the camp was amazing and the fishing was a little slow at the start of the week but picked up towards the end. I managed to get my Cubera snapper. Thanks and speak soon

The fishing was very difficult. the winds during the week never died down making casting very difficult especially when faced with big waves. The guides took us to different areas that was a little easier however the fishing was not as good as expected. Perhaps next time we should book further in advance so we can pick better times

I didnt realise how remote this place was. at night time you couldn't hear a thing apart from the local frogs and some weird noises from the surrounding scrub. The guides and staff at the camp are amazing and very knowledgable.

Must take some more lures next time as lost a few and another angler was ever so kind and lent me some of his. Thanks for a memorable trip

my little tip is to make sure you take a fight belt as I came home with huge bruises all round my groin area...... these fish fight hard. The lure I took were a little too small but managed with what I had. More info on sizes would be better
