Great Lakes Safari ltd, a Ugandan tour company has imported a modern boat intended to enhance both tourism projects of the company and the country at large.
The vessel is called Dream Quest.
According to Amos Wekesa, the company boss, they are “excited about trying business in marine tourism.”
“We shall do more if this works out well in addition to golf tourism we are going to push from next year,” he said.
The tourism guru argues that “Uganda has more lakes and rivers than any African country and unfortunately largely unexplored for tourism purposes.”
Lake Victoria alone if properly exploited for tourism, he suggests, could create 10 times the jobs created by primitive fishing.
