Ever thought of going for a fishing safari?

 This might come as a bit of a surprise that Kenya actually offers Fishing safaris! Most people tend to think that a safari is only when you are deep in the jungle.... however that is not the case!There are different kinds of fishing and Kenya has many fishing locations with eight Lakes and the Indian Ocean Coast on her palm!

Just as a safari, fishing has it's season which are predominantly determined by the distance to the fishing "ground" in the sea with the high season being when you have to go deeper in the sea to find the fishing spots and low season mostly being when the fishing is closer to shore. The rate is determined by the number of hours/days or the type of boat just as a normal safari rate is determined by the type of lodge you stay at.

The types of boats are;

(a)Luxury Charter Boats- These are boats between 38ft to 48ft, mostly for high end market, the major difference from other boats is the comfort,most having air-conditioning,kitchen facilities,comfortable berths and bathroom/WC.
Long day safari from US $ 1,200; Short day safari from US $1,000...

(b)Top Charter Boats- These are between 30ft to 38ft,all are skippered by top captains or flag ships of their fleets. These boats are usually in demand during high season thus we advice booking for that period should be done well in advance.

Long day safari high season from US $ 880, low season from US $ 770; Short day safari high season from US $800 low season US $ 690         
(c)Standard Charter Boats- All other boats in the 30ft to 38ft class.

Long day safari high season from US $720,low season from US $640 and Short day safari high season from US $660, low season from US $530
In most cases, prices include fully equipped fishing boat and crew,soft drinks and return transfers from the hotel to the boat. Currently we have these safaris running from 16th March 2011 - 14th December 2011 (High season) and 15th December 2011 - 15th March 2011 (Low season).
