Day Trip to Lake Jipe

Teeming with wildlife, lake Jipe is a little known, and seldom visited, inter-territorial lake on the border between Tanzania and Kenya.

In Tanzania, Lake Jipe is surrounded by villages whose inhabitants regularly fish from the lake. Take a tour of Lake Jipe villages and find out how the people in this remote area survive, their history and culture, and their outlook for the future.

A lake surrounded by Ugweno Mountains to its south, and flat plains to its north, with Mount Kilimanjaro visible from its shores, Lake Jipe is a hidden gem that will give you a view of the harsh realities of life off the beaten track.
