Peter Baily manages the office in Sydney Australia whilst Tim Baily with our Egyptian partner Nabil Abd El Moete runs the Aswan office and the safari operations. Our Nubian Safari Crews are highly experienced most of our key staff and guides have been with us for 12 years and longer.
In 1993 Tim Baily, the founder of African Angler, had the privilege of being the first to pioneer small boat safaris on Lake Nasser. Both Tim and Peter Baily were born and raised in Kenya, and have been involved in the safari business for most of their lives which has brought the atmosphere of traditional African "Hemingway" style safaris to Lake Nasser combined with old style hospitality and attention to service.
For the past 20 years we have been operating sport fishing safaris targeting and releasing one of the biggest fresh water fish in the world - the legendary Nile perch. Our fishing safaris are ‘second to none’ and most anglers who come for the first time will catch the largest ‘wild’ fresh water fish of their life and have an angling adventure they will never forget.
Using the experience gained by our safari teams and guides, we have also introduced ecology related holidays to this picturesque desert lake.
“The kind of hospitality shown by Tim and his guides is seldom seen these days and the atmosphere was incredibly friendly ". Steve Pitts.
An important requirement for a successful safari is the crew; we take this seriously and devote time and effort into selecting and training our teams most of them have been with us for ten years or longer. They are all Nubians who inhabited the Nile Valley before it was flooded by Lake Nasser. They have a rich heritage which dates back to before the Pharaohs controlled ancient Egypt and still maintain their own distinct culture, language and architecture. There is an excellent ‘esprit de corps’ amongst our Nubian staff, they are proud of the work they do and you can’t beat them for their spontaneous and genuine friendship.
The Nubians have a special reputation amongst outsiders; their characteristics are generally considered to be honesty, trustworthiness, good heartedness and cooperation. But this reputation covers not only the people but also their country, which was called Balad El-Aman, a land of safety and security.
I am telling you all this because the whole crew and the staff of African Angler are Nubians, and without exaggerating, I have barely ever met better, politer, more helpful and grateful people in my whole life! These guys are very proud of their culture and their values and until today represent them to the fullest!
