Explore Mwanza on the shores of Lake Victoria
To visit Mwanza is to head off the traditional tourist trail of Tanzania. Here, on the shores of Lake Victoria, commercial ships fish for Nile perch and sardines that will be sold across Africa. Every year Tanzanians flock to Mwanza for work opportunities. Explore this thriving and interesting city with a visit to the Mwaloni fish market (you'll also find produce brought in from villages around the lake) and pretty views of Lake Victoria. Bismark Rock, a tall boulder balancing atop a jumble of rocks out in the lake, can be visited on route to the ferry terminal. Ferries carry passengers across the lake to Bukoba and points along the shore. From Mwanza, it’s also possible to take the train across the country to Dar Es Salaam, but be warned, it’s regularly delayed for as many as 12 hours.
