Visit Lake Tanganyika, one of Zambia’s most impressive sites, and find out more about the beauty and abundance of Africa! In the 1800s, English scientists Richard Burton and John Speke explored what they thought to be a source of Nile, and found out that Ruzizi River, which looked like Nile, was flowing into, not out of the lake. This discovery led to thousand speculations and geographical theories. Some of them we can still see in a beautiful documentary of ‘Mountains of the Moon’.

British scientists were right after all. Tanganyika is the longest fresh water lake in the world, and the second deepest. It is unbelievably old, almost prehistoric, and could well serve as an example of what Ancient Egyptians called Nun, the primordial watery abyss that existed before life itself. Nun covered all of the existing land, and was thought as the beginning of life, just as Tanganyika gives life to over 350 species of tropical fish, most of which are unique. It is revolutionary and evolutionary alike, a showcase of what nature can do without human interference. Tanganyika is the water soul of Africa, and if there is a lake the beauty of which is yet to be discovered, that’s it.

Deep blue waters hide many secrets, some of which are explored by the numerous travelers, coming to visit the Tanganyika shores and compare it to the world’s deepest lake, Baykal. Just like its Russian counterpart, this African beauty features some nearly distinct species of underwater life, so the local authorities makes sure that ecological consistency is maintained. Among projects that help save the exotic wildlife is the Lake Tanganyika Biodiversity Project. It helps assist preserve the oceanic life too, as the level of the water on the mainland steadily decreases.

Discover the unparalleled African roar with Tanganyika sightseeing trip which allows tourists to see what Zambia can be truly proud of. Swimming in the waters of the lake is an absolute treat, too – warm, clear and full of exotic species to lay gaze upon. So don’t hesitate to travel to the warm beaches of African land, where the most unexpected is just around the corner. You can book the ticket right away or wait till your friends join you, but never miss the opportunity to be the part of an amazing team that’s heading straight to the heart of Africa. It has been many years since the cradle of the humanity has been discovered from essays for sale, but we have yet to feel the charm of ample deserts and hot summer nights…
