Sport Fishing In Uganda

Apr 2014

Sport fishing in Uganda

Uganda is one of the most beautiful countries in Africa. Its beauty doesn’t only reside in the fantastic scenery, friendly people and the mountain gorillas but also in its incredible water bodies. 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 tourism. 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, 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 in the World also offers opportunities for fishing at various points.

Given the present demand for fishing in Uganda’s fresh water bodies Nature Friendly Safaris have designed another tourism product that will enable you interact more with the unpolluted land gifted by nature! Our fishing safaris makes it possible for you to participate in all kinds of fishing which Uganda has to offer thus making your holiday in Uganda memorable and personal. We cater for all kinds of anglers— from the beginners to the more experienced anglers. Over 350 fish species are known to exist in Uganda's water bodies. The major commercial and common species include Nile Perch and Tilapia which are also the main fish targets of most tourists. Other fish species include Rastrinabola, Protopterus, cat fish, and lung fish, among others. The delicacy of these fish species is excellent while catching a Nile perch weighing over 200 kg is incredible. 

It’s from only Uganda that you will enjoy exceptional sports fishing in beautiful unpolluted and naturally gifted surroundings while relaxing and taking little else but fishing seriously.
