Fishing Safaris in Uganda, Sport fishing in Uganda,which is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa.Its beauty doesn’t only reside in the fantastic scenery but also in its incredible water bodies , friendliest people and the mountain gorillas. Situated on the elevated basin which rises between the Eastern and the western branches of the Great Rift Valley, Uganda has a great potential of developing water based trips. With the exception of the semi-desert in the extreme northeast, most of Uganda is well watered and fertile. Almost 25% of the country’s surface is covered by water. Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and the second largest fresh water body in the world, is shared by Uganda with Tanzania and Kenya. Lakes Albert, Edward and George lying on the Congolese border as well as the marshy and ill defined Lake Kyoga lying in the centre of the country all offer great sites for fishing trips. The Nile, the second longest river also offers opportunities for fishing at various points.
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.
We encourage the catch and release policy for all fishing trips.
