River fishing

Match your wits with the mighty Nile perch in Murchison Falls National Park

The essence of the river fishing

Enter into a battle of the wills as you experience the extreme sport fishing that the Nile River at Murchison is renowned for. Cast a line for the strong and agile Nile Perch living in the turbulent waters below the falls, as well as for a variety of catfish. Enjoy the rugged setting of the remote riverside pool as you attempt to hook some of Africa’s most renowned fish species. Fishing is done on a catch and release basis and anglers are accompanied by experienced local fishing guides. Choose whether to try your luck from the river’s bank or from specially equipped fishing boats.

One of the most beautiful and picturesque spots in the world is just below Murchison Falls, and this is also where the formidable Nile Perch is found. The largest fresh water fish in Africa, this slippery silver predator with a blue tinge won’t let you off too easily. With the thundering roar of one of the most powerful waterfalls in the world cascading behind you, and the delicate swoops of the water birds, lured by the glimmering quivers, and the lush forest creeping to the water’s edge, your fishing sojourn is set against a magical backdrop.
