We had been searching for a suitable Nile perch fly fishing fishery for almost a dec- ade In January 2018, we led the first of two exploratory trips to what we consider one of the last remaining ecologically intact West African savannah habitats - through which the Faro River flows. The discovery and subsequent collaboration that we have established with key concession owner, Dr. Koen Maes, encompass a geographically special 60 km section of the Faro River bordering the Faro National Park. This allows us to offer a world-class and unique fly fishing product to adventurous anglers. The combination of pristine riverine and terrestrial ecosystems makes this area one of the last relatively untransformed representations of Sahelo-Sudanian ecosystems left on the planet.

What started as quest to find a world class nile perch fishery, has developed into much more. Gassa Camp, offers one of the most diverse fly fishing experiences one can have on the African continent. The unique wilderness and wildlife experience, coupled with excellent birding, our a bespoke seasonal tented camp, and our self- imposed small group sizes, all add immense value to our guests’ stay.
