Lake Victoria is the setting for a holiday that’s about as far away from it all as you can possibly get. It’s the world’s second largest freshwater lake and is the magical source of the Nile. The Lake is rich in fish and bird life, its islands lush and verdant. The deep blue waters support an abundant ecosystem. Its shores are lined with groves of banana trees and fishing villages where you’ll always be greeted with a friendly smile and a wave. The chance to catch the giant Nile perch draws many. Some come for the abundant birds, fish eagles, kingfishers and pelicans, others to glimpse the playful otters. Above all Mfangano Island Camp is an ideal place just to relax, swim, fish, read and feel yourself a million miles from anywhere. A place to soothe your soul, to treat yourself to fish caught fresh that day, to fruit and vegetables from our own lakeside gardens.
December has been great with cool weather, sunny skies during the day and heavy rains at night so the gardens are looking spectacular at the moment. The bird life has been spectacular with 50 different species spotted just within the camp and lake shore.
