    Top Tips

    This is an absolutely gorgeous spot to spend a few days exploring , especially if you base yourself at or even .
    Don’t expect a prolific amount of wildlife here. What you can expect is a simple location with budget to midrange accommodation and an abundance of beautiful lakeside views.
    While it might be very tempting to swim in , do consider the risks of bilharzia (and how to treat the disease) before doing so.
