Our 4 days luxury Uganda fishing safari is a 3 nights/4 days spot fishing safari in Uganda trip to Murchison Falls National Park which is specially designed for sport fishing in Uganda trip lovers who are all about the big catch with a mix of Uganda wildlife safaris and tours. Murchison is the largest national park in Uganda, renowned for its scenic beauty, spectacular Nile River and the Murchison falls, and abundant wildlife including the world’s largest population of the endangered Rothschild’s giraffes, Lions, Leopards, Elephants, Buffalos, Uganda Kobs, Hartebeests, Crocodiles, Hippos, and Waterbucks and over 450 bird species including the iconic Shoebills.
