LAKE VICTORIA TOUR
Shared between the three of the East African Countries – ( Tanzania,Kenya and Uganda ), Lake Victoria is the Largest Fresh water lake in Africa commonly regarded as Africa`s Inland sea. Famous Explorers like John Hanning Speke on their exploration of Africa discovered Lake Victoria in 1858.Though rarely visited by many Visitors to east Africa,we at Birding & Beyond Safaris, do include Lake Victoria on many our of trips so as to be able to catch up with the Lake zone specialities not found off the lake zone.
The red Chested Sunbird,Northern brown throated & Slender billed weavers, Night jars, Senegal and Blue Headed Coucal, Black headed Gonolek and a number of waders and shore birds to add onto your list â€¦â€¦. are restricted to lake Victoria. It is a shame for any keen birder to visit the Serengeti and not get as far west as Lake Victoria to catch up with these specialities.
