 Uganda – Murchison Falls

Follow in the footsteps of Dr Livingstone and visit the jewel of Uganda, battle huge Nile Perch in the shadow of the mighty Murchison Falls. The richly oxygenated water at the base of the falls provides an irresistible attractant for all the big predators in the area, who knows what will pick up your bait next ……



Uganda

Murchison Falls is one of the African continent’s wonders with the whole of the Victoria Nile thrusting through majestically through an 8 metre gap to a breathtaking 40 metre drop. The bird life is extravagant, the fishing is awesome – all in the presence of hippo pods, basking crocodiles and abundant game.

Fishing

Year round except in the rains during April / May & November / December.

Murchison Falls National Park

Situated approximately 6 hours drive from Entebbe, we utilise 4 x 4 Landcruisers for the drive which are both comfortable and spacious or you have the option of taking a scheduled flight.

Fishing at Murchison Falls National Park is currently done in the area at the base of the falls. The fishing is either from the banks of the river or slightly lower downstream in the pools,  from a boat.

Fish caught on livebait / lures include Nile Perch and various species of catfish. There are also a large variety of smaller species that can be caught on spinners / small lures / flies including the acrobatic Tiger Fish.
