Water Body · Nature / Park
Covering a surface area of over 68,800 sq km (26,600 sq mi), Lake Victoria is Africa's largest lake as well as the second-largest freshwater lake in the world. Tanzania, Kenya, and Uganda all share parts of the lake, which also happens to be the source of the world's longest river, the Nile. Take a canoe or boat and navigate across calm waters where you can visit either one of the lake's beaches or one of its 80-plus islands. See local fishermen, bird life, and marine life as you navigate this natural wonder. You can use Lake Victoria's many ferries to travel between the neighbouring countries. Work out when and for how long to visit Lake Victoria and other Entebbe attractions using our handy Entebbe trip itinerary app.
