Explore the striking shores of Lake Victoria
This day journey to the glorious shores of Lake Victoria promises a little bit of everything; from thrilling wildlife and sightseeing wonderments to fishing excursions and cultural insights. With a truly diverse range of exciting things to do, you have a full day, at your own leisure, to explore the world’s largest tropical freshwater lake and all it has to offer.
Start the day with a morning safari game drive to the Serengeti National Park gate. From here, a 20-minute drive will take you to the lake shore, with the option to visit the Lukungu community and learn about the work of Africa Foundation, &Beyond’s long-standing community and conservation development partner.
On arrival at Lake Victoria, adventures abound; try your hand at some fishing from a canoe or dhow, pay a visit to a traditional doctor, clap along to the daily rhythm of local life as villagers show-off their vibrant dance moves, or simply admire the magnificent and lush landscape. Strolls along the lakeshores boasting unsurpassed views, while the forests of idyllic Rubondo Island National Park, deep in the lake’s southwest reaches, provide ample opportunity for a guided walk or hike. After an eventful morning of exploring, a scrumptious picnic lunch, paying tribute to local ingredients and surrounds, is served on the lake shore.
A visit to Lake Victoria is at an additional cost and should be booked in advance.
