Meob Bay Fishing

The Namib Desert holds a sense of mystique and fascination for travellers and fisherman alike. It is perceived as the last out post that must still be conquered … a destination to be ticked off on the bucket list. The fascination with the desert dates back to early days when diamond prospectors entered this vast sea of sand and many myths and fables originated as well as the stories of many a ship that became a victim of the Namib. This sensitive desert forms the fundamental portion of the Naukluft Park and for that reason operations and movement are restricted. Concession holders are permitted to take groups of people through the desert and now we have also obtained permission to take groups on fishing trips to Meob Bay. The waters around Meob is untouched … the ultimate experience for any fisherman. Fishing is allowed on a catch and release basis. Pack your gear, get your fishing buddies and come to Meob Bay for a fishing trip in the world oldest desert.

DAY 01:

Depart for Meob

Meet your guide early morning in Walvis Bay. Ensure that you have enough fuel, firewood, water, snacks, drinks and that your fishing equipment is packed and in order. You don’t want to worry about this when your focus should be on fishing.

You will receive a short briefing and then the convoy will depart towards Sandvis. Depending on the tide you will either negotiate the Langewand or move inland to cross the dunes.

Some of the landmarks to be on the look-out for is the wrecks of the Shawnee and Eduard Bohlen.
The Eduard Bohlen was stranded near Conception Bay in 1909. This rusty wraith is something exceptional to behold and the icon of the Namib.

You will reach Meob Bay late afternoon.
