WELCOME TO UGANDA-The Pearl of Africa

Tourism is returning the sheen to the ‘pearl of Africa’-Uganda remains one of the safest destinations in Africa

Uganda packs a lot into one small country. It’s home to Africa’s tallest mountain range (the Rwenzoris), the source of the Nile, the world’s longest river and the continent’s largest lake. Rafting the Nile offers a world-class adrenaline adventure, but the country’s most iconic experience is tracking mountain gorillas in their misty habitat.

WATER SPORTS

White Water Rafting

Uganda’s white-water rafting industry is comparatively new – the first drop of the river by a paddler was in 1996, and the grade 4 and 5 extend of rapids on the Nile have since been developed into a world-class rafting destination possessing some of the most prevailing and constant rapids on earth. The powerful volume of water creates horrible rapids that provide an unforgettable rafting experience equivalent to that of the Zambezi River in Zimbabwe. Home of the white-water rafting industry is the city of Jinja, located at the source of the River Nile, the longest river in the world.

Sport Fishing

Uganda is an ideal fishing destination. With one third of the country covered by water; there is great opportunity for sport fishing. Sport fishing is carried out on Lake Victoriaand Murchison Falls National Park. Nile Perch Fishing in Lake Victoria Uganda is implausible! Over 108 kg have been trapped below the Falls in Murchison falls. Apart from Nile perch, other fish you can catch include catfish of over 50kg Tilapia, Tiger fish, Ngara (Genus alestes), ferocious fighter and barbel.
