With a surface area of 68,800 sq km (26,600 sq mi), Lake Victoria is Africa’s largest lake. In addition, it's the largest tropical lake in the world, and the planet's second largest freshwater lake. Only North America's Lake Superior is larger. With a surface area of just under 70 000 km², Lake Victoria not only dominates this part of East Africa but ranks as the second largest freshwater lake in the world. Yet despite its huge size, the shimmering lake is quite shallow - only 75 metres at its deepest - and there is little wildlife compared to the smaller Rift Valley lakes such as Lake Nakuru or Manyara. The giant lake borders three African countries - Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, with half of the lake lying in Tanzania. Travelling between these countries via the lake is, sadly, a luxury of the past. Sitting in a fertile basin, the area is predictably heavily cultivated and densely populated, and given that much of its shoreline is marshy and infested with bilharzia, swimming is not an option. Tanzania's Rubondo Island National Park - located in the southern portion of Lake Victoria on one of its many islands - is the only major highlight of a visit.
