AUTHENTIC SAFARIS & PERSONALIZED TOURS IN LAKE VICTORIA WITH AFRICANMECCA

Lake Victoria offers a variety of activities to ensure every guest has an unforgettable dream safari holiday in Kenya. From listening intently as an expert local guide describes the nesting behaviors of African fish eagles and other avian species to catching your own Nile Perch for dinner to simply allowing yourself to take a break from your hectic AfricanMecca active-adventure safari, you are sure to find something that is perfectly apt to your personal needs. More than 350 bird species have been recorded at Lake Victoria, giving it a reputation of offering superb birdwatching. With a resident ornithologist as your guide, travel on foot or by boat to locate and identify swallows, bee-eaters, weavers, kingfishers, warblers, sunbirds and other feathered inhabitants.

Birdwatching is one of the most popular activities with for guests, and many of the Lake Victoria species are rarely found in other parts of Kenya. From October to April, guests can also observe migratory species that arrive from Europe, and the presence of these sorts superbly complements the resident avi-fauna that are abundantly found around the lake. Lake Victoria is also an angler’s paradise, offering fishermen of all levels the thrilling experience of catching a Nile perch. These large fish can reach six feet in length and weigh in at a mind-blowing 300 pounds! You needn’t worry about bringing tackle as this is available at your accommodation. Best of all, you have the inside information of a local fisherman skipper showing you all of the best spots to cast! Should you prefer a more relaxed trip at Lake Victoria, fish for tilapia on the jetty just before sunset in the early evening.

For AfricanMecca guests who desire archaeological tours in Kenya, we recommend walking tours of Mfangano Island and Rusinga Island. On Mfangano Island, your guide takes you to see ancient rock art at Mawanga Cave and foothill site of Kwitone. Known as one of the unspoiled places in the world for primate fossils, the archaeological treasures of Rusinga Island were first discovered in 1948 by Louis and Mary Leakey. Today, the island remains a significant point-of-interest for archaeological studies by Pennsylvania State University, University of Minnesota and American Museum of Natural History. The island is also home to the Tom Mboya Memorial to commemorate on of Kenya’s most prominent political leaders. The Luo people of Lake Victoria continue to follow the traditions and practices of previous generations. Their charming lakeside fishing villages dot the shoreline, and their dhows sail along the lake each day. You find yourself immersed in their casual and relaxed lifestyle, and their warmth and kindness to guests are the epitomai of authentic native Kenyan hospitality.
