The Gambia is well known as an ALL YEAR ROUND sport fishing destination.  The main tourist season is from October through to the end of April.  Then from May until September the holiday resorts run their summertime programs.  Fondly termed as 'the green season', this time of year offers a lush tropical environment with warm ocean currents moving inshore to the river estuary and coastline providing some excellent sport fishing.  Tarpon, Barracuda, Jacks, Cassava, Snapper, large Rays, Sharks, and Threadfins can all be targeted during the summer months using a variety of fishing techniques & methods such as spinning, lure, fly, & live-baits.

African Angler offers a popular fishing holiday package in conjunction with The Ngala Lodge Hotel. 

Included in the package:
Professional sport fishing and quality accommodation

7 x nights at the Ngala Lodge - Bed & Breakfast
3 x days sport fishing (sole use of boat)

All fishing equipment and expert guidance is provided.

The Fishing is ideal for novice or expert anglers and will suit individuals, fishing partners, small groups,  and families. 

Prices:
650 per person based on two people sharing
