What to see
Lake Victoria is
the worlds largest tropical fresh water
lake covering 30,000 Sqm .It is rich is
aquatic life including Tilapia ,Nile Perch, cat fish , cyprinids ,African tetras ,silver butter catfish and
The lake has a maximum depth of between 80 and
84 metres (276 ft) and an average depth of 40 metres (130 ft.)
Lake Kyaninga is one of the several crater
lakes in western Uganda ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling
It is made up of two volcanic craters that have, over time, formed into one lake. It is one of the deepest crater lakes in Uganda and one of the cleanest in East Africa. Stretching a massive 224 metres/735 feet into the Earth, water of this depth should be very cold but thanks to the semi-active properties of these craters the water is a comfortable temperature for swimming.
The water in the lake has a very high mineral content which keeps almost all plant life at bay and stops the formation of any algae which in turn keeps the lake free from Bilharzia, a parasitic worm found in many Ugandan lakes. There are steps taking you down to the water’s edge where a floating jetty awaits to take you out to deeper waters
