Uganda - Nileperch & Gorillas

After several years of planning, we could perform this unique expedition in December 2011 and January 2015. Our expectations had been fulfilled more than expected and it is difficult to summarize the experience of this expedition in just a few words. This expedition is unique in Europe and only bookable with us!

The magnificent scenery, the impressive gorillas or the vast savannahs of Queen Elisabeth National Park - all this, and of course the fantastic Nile perch fishing at the foot of the Murchison Falls make this a unique expedition to Europe.

On your two-week expedition through the green heart of Africa you’ll get past spectacular volcanic landscapes, drive along huge tea and banana plantations to countless volcanic crater lakes and dense rain forests. Of course, the mountain gorillas in Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest, is our personal highlight. We expressly point out that this expedition requires a good level of fitness. Gorilla trekking is physically exhausting and can take up to seven hours. One thing is certain, these efforts will be rewarded and you'll never forget the impressions.

You will experience the fantastic African wildlife in Uganda, especially in the Queen Elizabeth National Park where we’ll go on "Safari" with you for several days. You are accommodated in a Safari lodge on the edge of the Park. From here, it we’ll take you on the prowl after lions, giraffes, elephants and buffaloes and, of course, the chimpanzees who live in a dense forest, hidden in a deep gorge. Anyhow, this chimpanzee trekking also requires a good level of fitness.

Another highlight of course represents the fish at the Murchison Falls. Here you’ll fish on different types of catfish, Nile perch and Tiger fish for five days. The unique environment in which your fish is very special and unique. During the fishing you can see elephants, buffaloes, hippos and crocodiles, ospreys and countless other residents of the Murchison National Park. The fish stock is very high and in our opinion, Uganda is the best Nile perch area of the world! On our last expedition we could catch Nile perches of 76, 75 and 58kg. The result is rounded out by countless smaller specimens, as well as various catfish up to 25kg. We can't wait to let you experience this unique fishery!

Exemplary expedition itinerary

The expedition will start from Frankfurt. The water level and the conditions of the Nile are ideal during our expedition. The expedition is limited to a group of a maximum of seven participants. Starting from Entebbe, we’ll go south into the mist-shrouded volcanic mountains of Bwindi Inpenetrable Forest. There we will visit the gorillas in the mist. Then it goes on to Queen Elisabeth National Park where we will spend a day doing chimpanzee trekking in addition to normal game drives. After that we’ll continue towards the north, to fish at the Murchison Falls for five days. Then we will drive back to Entebbe and fly back to Germany.

So if you seek a unique and extraordinary adventure that not many people can experience nowadays and if you are also looking for brute drills, this expedition will be the right choice for you.

This expedition takes quite some time to prepare. Therefore we offer this expedition ones in two years. In case the group is filled up faster, the expedition will take place the coming year. Therefore you should contact us for availabilities so we can plan the group way in advance!
