Tanzania – Mwanza Region

lake in tanzania

Mwanza is the largest town in the western region of Tanzania and lies on the Southern portion of Lake Victoria.
Also known as Rock City, you will soon appreciate where that name came from when you enter the city, or fly over the region.

The city is in a hilly area, but what makes the hills quite interesting is that they are showered in boulders of all shapes and sizes randomly clumped together and dotting the rural countryside. Even more astonishing to see, is the households that are built on and in between these boulders.

As out friendly taxi driver said “he would never live in those areas” and I can understand, one minor shift on the rocks and your house could end up in a pile of rubble. However, with a beautiful view over the lake, it could well be a price that you may be willing to pay!
