This vast inland sea was first made known to the European world in the mid 1880's by the English explorers Richard Burton and John Speke in their pursuit of the source of the Nile. The Lake is bordered by four countries – Zambia in the south, Tanzania and DRC along the east and west coasts; and Burundi in the north. Commonly referred to the meeting place of Africa where north, east, west and south meet, the lake is a kaleidoscope of culture, landscape and nature.
Lifestyle of the lake inhabitants has changed little over the centuries while the influence of Arabia can be seen in the design of the wooden boats and dhows which ply this ancient trade route. Tradition is still strong in lakeside villages, where fishing is the way of life and respect for the Spirit of the Lake observed. Regarded as one of the most biologically unique habitats on earth, Lake Tanganyika is also a showcase due to its great stability and age.
