Kenya - Big Game Fishing

Already, Earnest Hemingway fished on the predator of the seas in Kenya. Kenya is famous for its abundance of fish in addition to its fantastic landscape and wildlife. In the Indian Ocean off the Kenyan coast Billfish species such as the Black, Blue and Striped Marlin as well as sailfish and swordfish cavort in a wide variety.

Depending on the season these fighters occur in large numbers. This type of fishing causes a maximum of adrenaline distributions and thrill. In addition to the classic trolling, fishing methods such as the jigging or dropshotting gain in importance in Kenya. Active fishing offers a high fun factor. Those who have hooked the first fish doing the jigging and hears the screech of the brakes, won’t get away from it so quickly. But also fishing with spinning rods on Marlin and sailfish comes increasingly in fashion. Nothing is more exciting than to attract a wild Marlin or sailfish with your surface lure behind the boat.

In addition to the already mentioned sword bearers, especially Giant Trevallies (GTs), Groupers, Snappers, Tunas, Amberjacks, Tiger sharks, Bull sharks and other smaller species of shark, Wahoos, Kingfish and Barracudas cavort in the reefs off the Kenyan coast.

Kenya is the ideal country to find the entrance into the world of saltwater fishing. Hardly any other country offers such a wide variety of different methods, target fishing and action such as Kenya. However, not only beginners will find the appropriate location in Kenya but also experienced big gamers repeatedly go on the Indian Ocean to meet new challenges for years.

Every year we organize various group and individual travel, big game seminars with our partners in Malindi. Besides the great fishing, we also offer special safaris to Kenya’s heartland. Experience the African savannah and the Big Five. An experience that actually should be mandatory at each visit to the African continent.
