Ox-bow lakes are normally created when a major river changes its course, cutting-out a major bend of its original path as it straightens out. The ensuing enclosured mass of water at the bend in the form of a ‘bow’ thus is referred to as Ox-bow lake. Lake Kanyaboli is the Largest such lake in Africa.

One of Africa’s hidden gem’s with unique ecosystems.

At times referred to as a satellite lake to lake Victoria, it holds unique fish species known to be extinct to its larger bordering sister lake (lake Victoria – The worlds 2nd largest fresh water lake). Some estimates put it at about 110 unique species like the ‘thickskin‘, ‘blue firefin’ and the ‘fine bar scraper’
