If traveling to you means being with nature and drinking in its beauty and indulging in its wild side, then for your next vacation head towards Lake Tanganyika in Tanzania. It is the second largest (volume) and second deepest lake in the world.
This crystal clear lake is nestled in the Great Rift Valley. The lake is so deep that in the bottom is fossil water, oxygen does not reach here as the water is not circulated. The site is about a million years old and thus rich in biodiversity with 500 different species of fish making it home.
The lake has two mind blowing natural reserves on its shores namely the amazingly beautiful Mahale National Park and Gombe Stream National Park famous for its chimpanzees. The beauty of the lake is exceptional and breathtaking.
If you wish to indulge in the lap of nature you can plan a visit here and stay at the Permanent Tented camps. You can enjoy the wilderness from these luxurious camps.
A popular place to stay near this beautiful lake is the Tanganyika Wilderness Camp. It has permanent tents, lodges and mobile camping to choose from. Make your safari trip memorable with a stay in this picturesque property.
