Lake Tanganyika is estimated to be the second largest freshwater lake in the world by volume/length, and the second deepest.
Lake Tanganyika is Africa's deepest lake. Lake Tangayika is divided among Tanzania, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Burundi, and Zambia. Tanzania and DRC possess majority of the lake. Water flows into the Congo River system and ultimately into the Atlantic Ocean.
Lake Tanganyika is situated within the Albertine Rift, the western branch of the East African Rift, and is confined by the mountainous walls of the valley.
The lake holds at least 250 species of cichlid fish and 75 species of non-cichlid fish, most of which live along the shoreline down.
This makes the lake a perfect hangout out joint for families willing to take canoe rides and go fishing together.
