Kampala 1-Day Tour Lake Victoria Fishing Trip; With Lake Victoria offering the opportunity for hooking one of the world’s largest freshwater fish the Nile Perch, anyone with some free time and interest can enjoy this day out.
During your fishing day trip, you will catch Nile Perch. From approximately 8 kilograms to 80 kilograms in weight. Trolling with lures is the main method of fishing used. Speedboats of between 18 and 30 feet, powered by twin outboard engines are used.
The boats have a large seating capacity but cater for a maximum of 4 people fishing at any one time (to avoid line tangling etc). Fiberglass 24-foot-long “canoes” powered by an outboard engine are also available for smaller groups of 2-3 fishermen and are usually best for day trips.
Our boats are equipped with an overhead sun canopy, rain suits (there can be a certain amount of spray when the lake is rough), mobile phones, life jackets, basic first aid boxes, and fire extinguishers on board for your safety.
We also have a cooler box on board for cold drink storage. All equipment and lures for trolling for perch for up to 4 lines per boat are supplied, but anglers are free to bring their own.
Kampala 1 Day Tour Lake Victoria Fishing Trip Itinerary
0730 Hours: After breakfast at your hotel/ residence, we transfer you to Entebbe for your full-day fish trip. If you are in Entebbe we also arrange for a transfer for you as well. Entebbe is located around 40 kilometers from Kampala City Centre.
0900 Hours: Arrive in Entebbe outside Uganda Wildlife Education Centre (UWEC), Lugard Avenue, where we park our vehicle and take a short walk to the pier from where we depart/ return. Kampala 1 Day Tour Lake Victoria Fishing Trip full day lasts approximately 8 hours on the water. Fishing is done around local islands about a 45-minute boat trip from Entebbe.
The areas fished will depend upon the weather and how the fish are biting. At certain times of the year, the lake can be very rough with large swells and so then we tend to utilize the sheltered bays for fishing. You will have the services of a local fishing guide.
1300 Hours: A picnic lunch is provided with a cool box of beers, mineral water, and sodas as well as tea and coffee. Anglers are free to bring along additional drinks required. We suggest you bring as much sun protection as possible – hats, sunglasses, and creams as it can be quite hot out on the lake (average daytime temperatures are in the mid to late 20 degrees C).
Strops or sandals are a good idea as you may well get wet feet – especially getting on and off the boat! Insect repellent is a good idea. A camera if you’d like to capture “the big fish” on film and a pair of binoculars if you are keen on birdlife.
Light day wear such as T-shirts and shorts are normally fine but we recommend a rain jacket in case of bad weather and a sweater or light jacket for cooler weather and the evenings.
1700 Hours: Return to the Pier in Entebbe. Later transfer you back to your hotel/ residence.
