LAKE VICTORIA

Kenya

THE MIGHTY LAKE VICTORIA IS MANY THINGS. IT IS ONE OF THE AFRICAN GREAT LAKES; THE WORLD’S SECOND LARGEST FRESHWATER LAKE; AND THE LARGEST TROPICAL LAKE IN THE WORLD. THE DEEP BLUE LAKE ALSO JOINS KENYA, TANZANIA AND UGANDA IN THE WEST AND IS THE CHIEF RESERVOIR OF THE NILE.

Its abundant ecosystem includes playful otters and brilliant birdlife. A splendid place from which to discover what Lake Victoria has to offer is the verdant Mfangano Island.

This removed destination is home to Mfangano Island Camp, a luxury island hideaway where relaxation and adventure are beautifully balanced. Home-grown, organic salads from the lakeside permaculture gardens and freshly caught fish are standard treats served in stunning settings. When not resting or reading, guests can swim or borrow bicycles to look around. But that is not all. A ride on a traditional Lateen rig sailing boat is the ideal way to settle into island life while village walks offer the opportunity to immerse oneself in the unique and colourful Luo culture and traditions.

Feeling welcome is effortless with friendly, beaming faces emerging from peaceful fishing villages tucked between groves of banana trees. Birding is best experienced with the camp’s resident ornithologist by foot or boat. There are over 350 species to search for including fish eagles, kingfishers and pelicans. Mfangano Island also has two painting sites namely Mawanga Cave and Kwitone shelter housing geometric symbols, some up to 4 000 years old. Those interested in pursuing the giant Nile perch should prepare for a challenge.
