Tarpon – Jack Crevalle – Snapper – Estuary Species
SEASON: September – April
DURATION: 7 Nights
Sette Cama Gabon is perfectly placed on one of the longest stretches of untouched coastline on the African continent and also alongside a massive estuary system. The combination offers wild-at-heart saltwater fishermen an opportunity to target many unique species of West Africa, with both spin and fly tackle. There is an abundance of large and aggressive game fish, all eager to attack a well-fished fly. The experience is also complemented by Africa’s most pristine tropical rain forest that creates the backdrop to a one-of-a-kind saltwater fishing experience.
Sette Cama Gabon is, without a doubt, a world-class fishery. This experience, however, is far more than a fishing trip. Guests at Sette Cama also have the opportunity to experience guided walks through Loanga National Park. Visitors will have the chance of seeing chimpanzees, lowland gorillas, red riverine hogs, forest sitatunga, numerous forest duikers, and monkeys. If you are lucky, you may also experience forest elephant and forest buffalo sightings along the beach.
Fishing at Sette Cama Gabon
All trips to Sette Cama are under the guidance of a professional host. With intimate knowledge of the fishing, and destination, your host will plan each day according to the tides and fish movements. The daily routine will be discussed each preceding evening. This way all guests will understand the following days’ conditions & the fishing plans.
Most anglers come to target the monster Tarpon that inhabits these waters. Threadfin & Jack Crevalle are also valuable targets in their own right and can be targeted in abundance. A key however to landing all three species is superb knowledge of flies, tackle set-up & local conditions. At Sette Cama, you receive excellent guidance in all three.
