Lake Tanganyika is the longest freshwater lake in the world and the second deepest. Its surface area spreads into Zambia, Congo DR, Burundi and Tanzania. Zambia can only claim around 7% of that surface area. It is also said that the lake holds around 18% of the world’s fresh water with around 26 rivers flowing into it! Another reason for its popularity is its water temperature which ranges from 24 to 26 degrees Celsius all- year round! It is an immense stretch of water which is home to more than 350 different species of fish, making it a perfect destination for an angling holiday. Visitors to the lake are usually interested in the variety of water-based activities the lake has to offer, the spectacular fishing and beautiful scenery.
