Since 1997 many anglers from all over the world have experienced Uganda Fishing Safaris.  Among these  Jeremy Wade, John Wilson and Zeb Hogan of Monster Fish National Geographic TV. The Nile River in Murchison Falls National park is a favourable spot for Fishing safaris.

The Murchison Falls National Parks’ most successful months vary from year to year for Uganda Fishing Safaris. December to March and June to October produce better fishing results. We catch all year round it’s just that in these months there is less chance of rain. The year has random Thunderstorms. Avoid The rainy season beginning from April to May.


Day 1: Departure

After breakfast at your place of stay in Kampala, you team up with the driver heading to Murchison Falls National Park to the north west of Uganda exploring the impressive landscapes of central Uganda including the flattest road section in the country. The drive is 311 km and it takes around 5 hours.  In the afternoon after lunch, you embark on an evening game drive in the northern section of the park that offers you rewarding encounters of the wildlife including the four of the Big five such as Elephants, lions, the leopards and the Buffaloes. Other sights of Rothschild Giraffes, the Jackson’s Hartebeest, the Uganda Kobs and the Oribis among others are impressive to encounter. The extensive savannah landscape of northern Murchison intercepted by the scattered Borassus Palm trees is an attraction in itself. Retire for relaxation, dinner and overnight.


Day 2: Whole day fishing on the Nile

After breakfast, you set off to the Nile River to embark on the whole day fishing experience. It’s magical to explore the fish Species along the Nile including the famous Nile Perch that even stretch to 75kg on this point. You have the best boats and the expert guides that will be your good companions during the fishing exercise. The other fish types like the Catfish species and the Tigerfish make your day exciting. You retreat to Paraa Safari Lodge for lunch and then get back to the Nile to have the magical fishing safari in Uganda up to the evening. You retire for dinner, relaxation and overnight.


Day 3:  Second day of fishing & hike to the top of the falls

This is another day dedicated to the fishing experience at the bottom of the falls. You target the powerful Nile perch as they drop from the 43m high waterfall still unsteady after being crushed along with the waters of the Nile as they pass through a less than 7m gorge. You undertake a hike to the top of the falls following a narrow path and you enjoy your packed lunch on the top of the falls. You do fishing again in the afternoon and get back to the lodge for relaxation, dinner and overnight.
