Lake Victoria is the world's largest tropical lake and spans three countries: Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda. It is one of Africa's Great Lakes - along with Lake Malawi and Lake Tanganyika - and forms the western border of Kenya. It is the most densely populated region in the country and is home to the Luo people, who have eked out a living on the lake's shores for many years. They use dugout canoes and dhows (traditional Arab sailing boats) as their main form of transport across the lake and survive by fishing and farming.
A trip to Lake Victoria is almost like stepping back in time. There are no hordes of tourists or safari vehicles - just endless blue water and lakeside villages stretching as far as the eye can see. You can sail across the lake on a dhow and go fishing with the locals. The Nile Perch was introduced to the lake and this massive fish can grow as big as a man, which makes catching one all the more exciting. You can also cast your line for the delicious tilapia (bream) while the locals throw their nets out at night for kapenta. And you can do this all while staying at luxury exclusive island resorts!
