Why you Should visit Lake Victoria
Lake Victoria is marketed as ‘The Pearl’ or ‘Pride of Africa’. It’s one of the greatest lakes in the world and is renowned for its spectacular beauty, lush tropical islands and beautiful beachside hotels and resorts. There are over 200 fish species in Lake Victoria which makes it a sought-after destination for a fishing tour in Africa.
The number of tourists visiting Lake Victoria has increased over the years because the region is benefitting from improved infrastructure and an increase in investment in the hospitality industry. You’ll find a wide selection of accommodation in the Lake Victoria basin, ranging from rustic fishing camps to private resorts, safari lodges and modern hotels.
Lake Victoria is also rich in history and has a substantial number of heritage sites as well as a significant archaeological site. The vast network of islands are home to incredible bird species which makes the lake region a birder’s paradise.
Lake Victoria spreads out over the borders of Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya and is close to Serengeti National Park in Tanzania and other world-renowned safari destinations in East Africa. It’s a popular add-on destination after a Big 5 safari tour to the Serengeti and the other famous game reserves in East Africa.
You can combine a holiday to Lake Victoria with a once-in-a-lifetime Serengeti safari tour in Tanzania or a gorilla tour in Uganda. If you can’t get to the impenetrable forests in Rwanda or Uganda for chimpanzee trekking, you ca visit Ngama Island on the Uganda side of Lake Victoria. The 100-acre island is a protected chimpanzee sanctuary.
