Explore a former gold mining city! Mwanza is an important port town on the shores of Lake Victoria. In 1858, John Hanning Speke arrived here on his quest to locate the source of the River Nile, and became the first European to discover Lake Victoria. The town itself deserves a walking tour and the many mosques and Hindu temples make you feel like you are in the East! Visit the central market for some wonderful insight into the daily life and culture of Mwanza, and you will find everything from household objects to food here! Try a boatride on Lake Victoria at sunset for a spot of romance.
