At 69,000 km. sq., Lake Victoria is the second largest body of freshwater in the world (only Lake Superior is larger). The lake surface is 1,134 m/ 3,720 ft above sea level. The climate here is extremely favorable with temperatures ranging from between 20˚C and 28˚C.
Bird life is prolific around the lake shores with fish eagles, egrets, herons, storks, ibises, cormorants and kingfishers in abundance.
Giant fig trees, centuries old, stand along the shoreline and various oases can be found along the lake where you can rest in complete relaxation. One can experience the traditional fishing village, enjoy active or passive water sports such as fishing and water skiing, and relax in the sun. It could easily be appreciated and enjoyed as an alternative to the ocean coastline.
