Uganda Fishing Lake Victoria Safari 10 days - GS 074AV,

Uganda Fishing Lake Victoria Safari, Nile Perch Fishing in Lake Victoria Uganda is incredible!! The Ssese Islands, a small cluster of over 80 islands off Entebbe, Uganda, are an untouched paradise. Most are uninhabited except by itinerant local fishermen, and are covered in thick, tropical forest home to monkeys and birds. Fish of over 80 kg have been caught. The main method of fishing in the lake is trolling with lures, although fly fishing has been tried as has live bait. Apart from the Nile perch, local tilapia of up to 5kg have been caught on bait. In the Nile river, below Murchison Falls, the fishing is normally with live bait, and apart from perch, catfish of over 50kg are often caught, WOW !!
