From our incredible lodges, we host multi-day fishing safaris that cater to the particular pursuits of our guests:


Trout fishing in the highlands surrounding Mount Kenya

At over 17,000 feet high, Mount Kenya dominates the landscape and puts the Grand Teton to shame.  Its highlands are dotted with pristine alpine lakes, stocked with trout 100 years ago by Scottish settlers, and largely unmolested ever since.  Ed will fly you in by helicopter, and settle in each night by the fire in log cabins at 10,000 feet, mindful of the leopard wandering outside…

Enormous Nile Perch, on the fly
Few things are as intimidating as a 100-200 pound Nile Perch exploding on your fly.  This is your biggest bass, times 10, stripping your line.  You are on the primeval Lake Turkana, mindful of the crocodiles, or across the border in Uganda in the froth of the Nile River and Murchisen Falls, mindful of the hippos.  Either way, your views of bass fishing will never be the same and you will be begging Ed for more.
Salt water flats – Giant Trevally and Tarpon
We hop in the plane to visit Fuzz Dyer at his remote ocean-side lodge, Manda Bay, to fish the shallow waters of the Lamu archipelago.  We are stalking GT on the reefs and baby tarpon in the mangroves by skiff, within eyesight of the lodge pool and thatched luxury cabanas.
Salt water off-shore – Sailfish and the Fantasy Slam
The Indian Ocean is just on the other side of the reef at Manda Bay, as we load up the off-shore boats for the short trip to the “drop.”  It is the only place in the world where you can catch 5 species of bill-fish in one day (sailfish, swordfish, billfish, blue marlin, black marlin).  Our crew are among only 4-5 individuals in the world who have done so on the fly – the elusive Fantasy Slam.


The world is a big place.

Where do you want to go?

The allure of fishing is the thrill of the hunt:  exploring unknown waters, learning what works, the art of the cast and the presentation, and the rewards of the catch.  It’s about also about getting there, the traditions, the culture of fishing, and the camaraderie that is built around a campfire that has become so rare in life.

For true anglers, this thrill is found not only on home waters but also on the rivers and waters of our dreams.

Africa is such a place.  We specialize in custom fishing safaris for those who seek the very best that the world has to offer, and East Africa is home to such very special places, ideally suited for the passion of fishing.  Our base is the Borana Ranch, owned and operated by four generations of the Dyer family.  At 6500 feet, this ranch and luxury eco-lodge is at once reminiscent of Montana and Wyoming, yet the gateway to a diversity of species and eco-systems not found anywhere else in the world.

Ed Ghaui is one of our most experience fishing guides, and was brought up fishing in these remote waters of Africa.
