Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria

Lake Victoria is the world’s largest tropical lake and is the jewel in the Great Rift Valley region. The lake then feeds the Nile River, which was one of the world’s longest and most historically significant rivers. The lake itself is shared by Kenya, Uganda, and Tanzania and plays an important role in each country.

Named after Queen Victoria, the lake is only exceeded in size by Lake Superior and is a marvel to behold when standing on the lake shore. The lake area is home to a number of birds and contains around 200 different fish, including economically important species for the surrounding regions, such as the Tilapia. However, the wildlife here is quite sparse compared with nearby lakes, such as Lake Nakuru which we will mention next. You can, however, combine both these experiences on the same tour. Lake Victoria is the preferred place for relaxation and contains some beautiful islands where you enjoy tours around the lake to observe different birds and beautiful scenery.

To explore Lake Victoria in comfort, a great place to relax as a contrast to the dusty plains of the Masai Mara is the Mfangano Island Camp, which offers a luxury getaway nestled in tropical gardens for fantastic views out over the water. From the camp, you can explore the area and the lodge’s own beautiful gardens then enjoy different guided tours out on the lake to spot some of the hundreds of birds. The camp is shaded by giant fig trees and provides gardens and a secluded bay to relax in. You will also experience the Luo culture, visit traditional villages, and see historical sites with ancient rock art.
