Lake Victoria’s vastness (400 km long and 280 km wide), blue waters and extensive white sand shores are awe-inspiring. It has a number of Islands, each with its unique beauty and enchantment.
Within the Lake, one can find many archipelagos as well as numerous reefs just below the surface. Lake Victoria is known for its abundance of fish, fishing for tilapia and Nile perch provides a living for the majority of the Bantu-speaking people who live along the lakeside. The fish are sold at local markets or to the processors for export. There are over 200 species of fish, which all make a major contribution to the economy.
