Mwanza - Tanzania

Mwanza is the perfect starting point for a trip to the Serengeti, the Ngorongoro Crater, and beyond. Located only 2 hours’ drive to the western gate you will start game viewing on your way to your accommodation as soon as you enter the park.

Closer to Mwanza there are another two national parks you can visit, both are islands in Lake Victoria, and you can have them almost exclusively to yourself. Rubondo NP and Saanane Island NP are both only a short boat ride from Mwanza and offer a huge range of animals, including elephants, sitatunga (a semi-aquatic antelope) and chimpanzees! Bird lovers, as well as fishing enthusiasts, will also absolutely love it here.

And as the sun sets over the lake, locals recommend taking a sundowner to ‘dancing rocks’, some of the city’s many boulders that are everywhere. You can enjoy the view whilst sipping on a cold drink in this little slice of paradise.

Book your cheap flight to Mwanza with Tripindigo today and explore the variety of wildlife on islands before heading off to the Serengeti and the Ngorongoro Crater.



Why visit Mwanza?

  • Go on safari in an open vehicle, on foot, by boat or in a canoe at Rubondo Island. A paradise for fishermen and bird lovers, but equally fulfilling to watch the chimpanzees, elephants or sitatunga (shy semi-aquatic antelope) and other wildlife
  • Try your luck at game fishing on Lake Victoria and see if you are lucky enough to catch (and release) a huge Nile perch
  • Visit Tanzania’s newest and smallest Saanane Island National Park
  • Organise your safari to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater in Mwanza, only a 2-3 hour drive from the Serengeti’s western gate
  • Learn more about the local people the Sukuma in the museum located in Bujora
  • Go back in time on Ukerewe Island, a place many call Little Zanzibar, but without the crowds

Information for visitors

Did you know?

  • Whilst in the Mwanza area, British explorer John Hanning Speke named the lake for his sovereign Queen Victoria in 1858. He also declared the lake as the much sought after source of the river Nile
  • Mwanza has an enormous potential to become a bouldering destination with so many boulders all over the place, waiting to be tried and climbed. By you perhaps?
  • Not far from Mwanza lies Ukerewe, the largest inland island in Africa. It is well known for the large population of Africans with albinism. Cultural visits can be arranged.
