Lake Tanganyika

I visited Lake Tanganyika between Christmas 2013 and New Year’s 2014. It was my most spectacular journey yet in Zambia, filled with both adventure (broken-down and slightly dangerous boat rides, a gorgeous hike to Kalambo Falls, and an illicit border crossing into Tanzania) and relaxation (lounging, playing my guitar, spending an entire evening singing along to ’80s and ’90s American pop music with nine other muzungus).

Situated in the Great Rift Valley, Lake Tang, as it’s known locally, is the world’s second-deepest freshwater lake. We stayed on the Zambian end, in the friendly and entertaining town of Mpulungu.
