Lake Vic­to­ria is part of the coun­tries Tan­za­nia, Ugan­da and Kenya. It is the third largest lake (after the Caspi­an Sea and the Upper Lake) and the sec­ond largest fresh­wa­ter lake in the world. It has a sur­face area of 68,800 km², which is rough­ly the size of Bavaria or Ire­land. Its coast­line has a length of 3450 km, of which 1750 km are in Tan­za­nia, 1150 km in Ugan­da and 550 km in Kenya. We stayed for one night in the Speke Bay Lodge.
