Lake Victoria

The above photo which I took from the moving car with my Smartphone, doesn't do the lake justice

It always fascinates me that when we enter Mwanza, a city 160kms from our camp, we ride along the shore of Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa and second largest freshwater lake in the world. The lake is shared between three countries: Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania. More than half the lake is in Tanzania.

I hope you're all having a wonderful week and that in the Northern Hemisphere spring has definitely sprung! I feel as though I'm trying to clamber out of a mine pit full of quicksand. Time is marching on for us to leave for our holiday in the UK (more about that later) and I have so much to do. But I should hopefully get all done in time...


  1. Such a beautiful lake, Jo!! I know you're getting excited about your vacation in the UK!! I also know there's lots to do getting ready for such a trip! Hope you have a wonderful time!!


  2. I need to add Lake Victoria to my travel list.

    Get packing girl. Or maybe you're like me, I make lists and then wait until the last minute.

  3. So nice to see your phone shot of lake Victoria. So much more personal than all the National Geographic's perfect lighting and time of day, perfect exposure and focus shots.

  4. I'm forever trying to figure out how to get to Africa without exhausting myself in the process. Lake Victoria is high on my list of places to see.
    When are you leaving for the UK?

  5. Thanks for our little trip to Lake Victoria!!
    Where we going Next?!!Lol
    Can't wait!

  8. Beautiful lake, Jo. I know how it is to have so much to do in getting ready for a long trip! I'm sure you'll get it all done in time and then you can relax!
