 Day 8, 9, 10 & 11: The Lake Victoria in Mwanza

It will be taking almost 5 hrs from Ikoma Wild Camp to Lake Victoria.

One of the largest lakes in Africa, Lake Victoria is renowned in some parts of the world due to the “Darwin’s Nightmare” documentary, which is based in Mwanza. If you’ve never heard about the documentary, chances are you know that Mwanza has a busy port. And if that’s also news, maybe you know that it’s the second largest city in Tanzania.

Even so, it’s not necessarily a big tourist spot, yet there are a few good spots in Mwanza. And the huge lake makes one feel like they are at the seaside. Mwanza is a great place to walk along the shore of Lake Victoria and learn some history. It’s a good place to relax.

Things you can do while you are here, and choose what you would like to do

  • A boat trip on Lake Victoria should be a high point on everyone’s list while in Mwanza. Seeing the lake and the surrounding area from the boat will give you a better feel of how life around Lake Mwanza looks. There are also quite a few paths where you can walk along the shore. Do try to interact with the locals, even if there’s no common language. Tanzanians are friendly people, curious to find out more about other countries. If you’re looking for a place to relax, there are a few restaurants along the shore where you can enjoy a drink while admiring nature.
  • Like no other city in Tanzania, Mwanza is surrounded by hills and boulders. It’s not by chance that the nickname of Mwanza is “Rock City.” One of the most famous rocks in town is Bismarck Rock. Just judging by the name of the hills and rocks, one can guess the German influences in this region, even without knowing any history. During daytime, you might find kids bathing and playing in the water close to the area. Join them if you’re brave enough.
  • Sunrise or Sunset cruise by Speed Boat from Wag Hill Lodge & Spa. The feel of Mwanza is in large part determined by its geographic attributes: its proximity to Lake Victoria, its rolling hills, and its huge, unusual rock formations, which earn its nickname Rock City.
    To fully appreciate the beauty and serenity of Mwanza, take a sunset or sunrise boat ride on Lake Victoria.
  • Speed boat tour is perhaps the most exciting way to explore the Lake Victoria and the surrounding fauna and flora amongst the expansive lands of the Wag Hill Lodge & Spa.
    It is a completely different experience as the speed boat speeds through the waters of the mighty Lake Victoria, passing by the local fishermen in their traditional dhow boats, setting a net in the waters to catch a fish. It is also a great way to witness the various bird species that inhabit the lands surround the hotel premises from a distance.
    The rolling landscapes and the rocky terrains of the Mwanza town add another wow-factor to the already mesmerizing natural beauty of the Lake.
