Lake Victoria Lodges
Safari Lodges On The Banks And Islands Of Africa's Largest Freshwater Lake, Lake Victoria
Welcome to our small selection of safari lodges and camps, all based on the banks and islands of Africa's largest freshwater lake, Lake Victoria. With a surface area of 60 000 km², the lake is massive, three countries (Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya) share Lake Victoria, but it is Tanzania that occupies about half of it.
Lake Victoria, as a destination, is typically off the traditional Tanzania safari circuit as it does not share the wildlife numbers that the other smaller Rift Valley lakes such as Lake Nakuru or Manyara do.
But there are a few hidden secrets in and around Lake Victoria, of course, with one of them being the Rubondo Island National Park. The virtually uninhabited Rubondo Island on Lake Victoria is your chance to get up close and personal with chimpanzees, elephants, giraffes, hippos and the shy sitatunga antelopes, not forgetting stunning birdlife sightings.
Note; swimming in the waters Lake Victoria itself is not always an option as the waters are quite often infested with bilharzia. Always ask the locals before diving in.
