Lake Victoria

The largest fresh water lake in the country and only second in the world after Lake Albert in the US-Canada border.Lake Victoria is however shared by three East African nations of Tanzania.Uganda and Kenya.

In the 1960s,the Lake which is also the source of river Nile used to have over five hundred brilliantly coloured  fish known as cichlids all of which were endemic to the Lake. Lake Victoria's cichlids are popular aquarium fish and one of the commonest species the tilapia is still a specialty in the region.

However introduction of the carnivorous Nile perch in the  mid 60s ate all other species into extinction and hence a massive reduction of other species of fish in the lake.

Major attraction in the lake include:

  • Rusinga island
  • Mfangano island
  • Ndere island.
