Lake Tangayinka makes a great destination for an off-beat, holiday by the lake. Visitors can choose from a wide range of activities including going on boat rides, fishing, to guided treks and walking safari in the park.

Situated in the Great African Rift Valley, the Lake Tangayinka is a treasure trove of beauty and unique fauna and flora in itself.

The silver sand beaches, and the tropical forests lined by the mountain ridges, and the glorious waterfalls around the region make a safe sanctuary
for primates, wild chimpanzees, a variety of mammals, butterflies and birds.
