Mwanza

Mwanza

Mwanza is the second largest city of Tanzania and the most important port of Lake Victoria.

With a population of 400,000, the main activities of the city relate to the fishing, and of course its relevant food industries.

Tourism is particularly concentrated in Lake Victoria rather than in the city, which does not offer many places of interest.

The area is dotted with huge kopjes, characteristic granite outcrops smoothed by the weather, which have become the symbol of this place.

The tribe historically inhabiting this area is the Sukuma, which is the biggest one of all Tanzanian tribes.
