Mongolia fly fishingBogi, everyone's favourite cook has been with us for nearly a decade and makes wonderful food that pleases a westerner’s flavours. The coffee is usually warm, the beer cold and the wine delicious. The resident Buryat - people are known for their freshly baked bread with butter and blueberry jam. The lunches are served along the river. If you are in need of special diet, this is usually not a problem.
Mongolia fly fishingEach camp is rustic but very comfortable, much like being on an African tented safari. The ger camps on the upper river are a bit more luxurious with a central dining ger and sleeping gers, linens, and wood burning stoves. Lower river tented camps are a bit more rugged, allowing anglers to access a beautiful and highly remote stretch of river. On the lower river, there is a spacious, insulated wall-tent with a wood-burning stove for socialising and sharing meals and guests stay in very large North Face tents with sleeping cots. All of the camps have simple hot shower facilities.
Mongolia fly fishingThe camps are designed as places to relax after a wonderful day on the river. Each camp reflects Mongolian traditions and is well integrated with the country’s natural surroundings. There are no generators or stereos, only the sounds of the trees and the water, the lights of candles and wood stoves, and the sparkling night stars.
