Day safari Trips –

Always we depart around 9.00 am or 1.00pm and return around 12.30pm or 5.00pm with a full day being approximately 8 hours on the water and a half day around 4 hours. 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 utilise the sheltered bays for fishing. A picnic lunch is provided with a cool box of drinks, mineral water and sodas as well as tea and coffee. Fishers are free to bring along additional drinks required.

What to bring on board

We suggest you bring as much sun protection as possible like; hats, sunglasses, creams as it can be quite hot out on the lake with average day time temperatures are in the mid to late 20 degrees C. 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 or  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. Lake Victoria Sport Fishing Rates Included: Use of fishing speedboat, fuel, lunch (where appropriate), reasonable quantity of hot and cold drinks, services of local fishing guide  and fishing equipment for trolling for up to 4 persons on board. 140$ per half day.
