1 Day Jinja Sport Fishing Tour in Uganda – SAFARI OVERVIEW

1 day Jinja sport-fishing tour in Uganda is a One Day Uganda Fishing Safari In Jinja that will give you a magical Uganda sport fishing adventure along the historic Nile River and superb scenery viewing experiences.

You will be targeting one of the largest freshwater fish in the world, the legendary Nile Perch along with other indigenous species like the Catfish and Tilapia. The experience is conducted on the boat, the fishing equipment is provided and the expert guides are there to take you through the whole process. Also, on this 1-day Uganda fishing safari excursion, the snack lunch and drinks are served on the boat. Never worry about the fishing gear for it is all provided!

Jinja, often referred to as East Africa’s main adventure tourism capital is a large historical town of Uganda whose main claim to fame is the source of the Nile: the place where the longest river in the world exits the world’s largest tropical lake (Lake Victoria) to commence an epic 6,650km journey to the Mediterranean Sea via the deserts of Sudan and Egypt. It was here, back in 1862, that the British explorer John Speke recognized Ripon falls to be the geographic Holy Grail that had lured the obsessed and hopelessly misdirected, David Livingstone to feverish death near Lake Bangweulu in present-day Zambia less than a decade earlier.

On this magical 1 day Jinja fishing trip in Uganda, there is a bunch of optional activities to choose from (at extra cost) if you want. Maybe get active with some white-water rafting on the Grade V rapids of the Nile, bungee jumping into the historic Nile River, Quad biking, and mountain biking or kayaking along the Nile. Alternatively, take a boat cruise to the source of the Nile to the place where John Speke stood as the first European to see the source of the Nile or to enjoy the river and quench a thirst.
