Fishing Safari (Half-Day Excursion)
A 40-minute flight brings one to the second largest fresh water lake in the world and the source of the River Nile - Lake Victoria. Fish for Nile Perch, some of which weigh over 200 lbs, look-out for the myriad of bird-life, or just spend time watching the spectacular scenery from your boat. The rare spotted-necked otter is also to be found here.
