Grab your bucket of fish and fastjet to Mwanza

By Candice de Beer

Believe it or not, but between Mwanza and Dar es Salaam fastjet Guests can travel with up to 23 kg of your preferred catch of the day. Marlin, tuna, swordfish or hake, all are allowed! Just be sure to freeze your fishy delights and shrink-wrap it before boarding your plane. We’ve also compiled a few other reasons to visit Mwanza.

Perfect site-seeing conditions

At this time of the year Mwanza is experiencing a dry season. It’s the right time for game drives and hikes, and the mild temperatures offer a welcome break from the at times unbearable humidity and scorching heat. Bring your binoculars and camera’s, dress comfortably, and carry insect repellent for just in case.


Mwanza borders Lake Victoria

You can literally roll out of bed and dip your toes into Lake Victoria, the largest in Africa. Here you can book boat rides, enjoy sundowners, catch fish (there are over 200 species in the lake), and much more. Added to this, Saanane Island National Park is a short ten minute boat ride from Mwanza Town. Here, you’ll find a variety of bird life, elephant, zebra, giraffe and other wild animals. Pack lunch, find a cool spot under a tree and just enjoy your surroundings.
