London duo launches tribal fishing experience to support children’s charity

Two London friends have launched a bespoke adventure trip, giving angling fans a fantastic opportunity to fish on the River Nile.

Created by chimney sweep Lawrence Oakley (38) and firefighter David Micallef (39), The Tribal Fishing Experience – for experienced anglers or enthusiastic beginners – is donating a percentage of the fee from each person who books a place, to charity.

The pair went on holiday to Uganda and realised there was an opportunity to create the opportunity around their passion.

Across ten jam-packed days participants will enjoy a host of specially curated activities in Uganda including six full days fishing on the river Nile, white water rafting, rhino trekking and a safari game drive through Murchison Falls national park – but only 24 places are available.

Proceeds will benefit The ONE LOVE Project, which provides vulnerable children in Uganda with long term education and opportunities.

Drawn to the beauty

The pair had the idea when they were drawn to the beauty of the Ugandan countryside, its wildlife, its people, and its fishing opportunities. It was there that they caught the biggest fish in their 30-year history on the River Nile – a 113lb Nile Perch.

Tribal Fishing Experience leader, Lawrence said: “We are privileged to be leading this unique fishing expedition, to Murchison Falls National Park – the best place in the world to fish for the Nile Perch, a fierce apex predator that dominates its surroundings. The Nile Perch is one of the largest freshwater fish and anglers in the region have landed to a huge 300 kgs or 661lb!

Joint leader, David added: “In over 30 years of fishing, The Tribal Fishing Experience provided me with the best fishing of my life. Against the backdrop of the most powerful waterfall in the world, you just don’t know what is on the end of the line, it could be a 10 lbs catfish or a 200 lbs Nile Perch!

“The locations are steeped in natural beauty, and you are surrounded by a host of wildlife from hippos to elephants, zebras, and every bird you can think of, it really is a once in a lifetime opportunity.”

A packed fishing agenda awaits – keen fly anglers will delight in the fact that Nile Perch and the tricky Tetra fish can be targeted with strong fly-fishing tackle and methods of catching the Nile Perch include live bait fish suspended mid-water and lure fishing with imitation baits.

All fishing is done on a catch and release basis only.

Highlights of The Tribal Fishing Experience include:

The Tribal Fishing Experience has meticulously chosen a selection of world-class fishing destinations, each boasting a unique ecosystem and a rich abundance of marine life.

Participants will enjoy comfortable all inclusive accommodation including luxury safari lodges in Murchison Falls.

Whether you are a seasoned angler or a first-time fisher, The Tribal Fishing Experience caters to all skill levels. Customised itineraries are offered.

It’s not just a fishing trip; it’s a chance to become part of a close-knit community of like-minded individuals who share a passion for fishing and exploration.
