Visit the source of the mighty Nile! Lake Victoria, the second largest freshwater lake in the world, offers you a welcome contrast to game viewing. Rich in fish and birdlife, the dark blue waters support an abundant ecosystem and are dotted with lush and verdant islands. The lakeshores are lined with groves of banana trees and fishing villages where you have plenty of opportunity to fish for the giant Nile Perch. Mwanza, one of Tanzania’s largest towns and the economic centre of the lake region, sits amidst beautiful hills strewn with enormous boulders, and is a great base for visiting Rubondo Island National Park.
