UGANDA FISHING ITINERARY

TOUR CODE EAI-U15 Length: 8 DAYS
Uganda Uganda is an ideal fishing destination. With one third of the country covered by water; there is great opportunity for sport fishing. Avid fishermen from around the world return time and again to Uganda, unable to resist the lure of the gigantic Nile perch, of which many specimens come in at more than 100kg in weight, the largest fresh water game fish in Africa.

Travel by motorboat onto Lake Victoria, the second largest lake in the world, for an exciting day of fishing for Nile perch or tasty Tilapia (minimum 4 people).

For those with more time, we can take you to Murchison Falls National Park for a unique and astounding fishing experience. Only here, on the Victoria Nile, can one feel the excitement of pulling in a 100kg fish while at the base of the most powerful natural flow of water anywhere on Earth, the picturesque Murchison Falls. Other game fish found in the Nile include Barbel, Electric Catfish and Tiger fish.

We offer professionally run fishing trips in Uganda on Lake Victoria and the Nile River in Murchison Falls National Park. Trolling with lures is the method of fishing used. All the necessary fishing tackle for Nile perch trolling on the lake is provided, but anglers are free to bring their own equipment. Lake trips can be enjoyed by everyone from those with no previous experience to those who are looking for a new destination.

Uganda At Murchison Falls National Park fish are caught on live bait or with casting lures including Nile perch and various species of cat fish. There are also a large variety of smaller species, (used as live bait), obtained by spinning including tiger fish. Fishing is either from the river bank or from a boat at the base of the falls area. This fishing is generally done over a few days and can be very exciting but it does require some experience and also a certain level of fitness due to the terrain.

Fish Caught / Methods - Nile Perch. From approximately 10 -100kg in weight. Trolling with lures is the main method of fishing used. You can also catch tilapia using fly fishing techniques. Tilapia are about 1-2kg in weight.
