Package Itinerary

At about 160 km, there are several turnoffs leading to the lake shore. The largest of the five lakes. Zway is 26 km. long and 18 km, wide. Several islands dot the surface.

Tall fig trees line the original shore, but in recent years the level of the lake has dropped to such an extent that several hundreds of meters of grassland and reeds come between you and the water. Ma-rabou storks roost on the tops of the acacias in the evenings, and many other birds have made the grassy stretch their feeding area: knob-billed geese, pelicans and an occasional saddle-bill stork. On the north side of the lake where the Meki river flows in lies Hippopotamus Bay. To reach the far shore or any of the islands it is necessary to bring a boat.
