Lake Victoria Holiday

The ultimate guide to your next Lake Victoria Holiday

Get to Know Lake Victoria

The source of the Victoria Nile is a vast inland sea offering plenty of opportunities for fishing, island hopping and birdwatching.

Known to the local Baganda people as Nalubaale ('Home of the Spirit'), Lake Victoria is the world’s second-largest freshwater body, set in a shallow basin on an elevated plateau separating the eastern and western forks of the Great Rift Valley. Though its waters are shared by Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, the Ugandan part of the lake is the most ecologically sound, with its shores and islands still swathed by large tracts of marsh and forest. Important lakeshore sites include Magamba Swamp, where you can look for shoebills and other aquatic bids on local boats, and the substantial town of Entebbe, which is where the Victoria Nile, the upper section of the Nile River, exits the lake.
