Project Description

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the things that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sail. Explore. Dream. Discover.

Mark Twain

Lake Victoria is one of the African Great Lakes. Named after Queen Victoria by the explorer John Hanning Speke, who was the first European to lay eyes upon the lake.

This is Africa’s largest lake by area, and it is the largest tropical lake in the world with many little islets to explore by canoe, jet ski or fishing boat.

The first recorded information about Lake Victoria comes from Arab traders plying the inland routes in search of gold, ivory, other precious commodities, and slaves.
