In between the game drives, a lovely experience to cruise around the lake, seeing plentiful hippos and water birds so close. Not at all crowded, so doesn't feel touristy at all!

We took a boat ride on the lake and it was excellent. Saw a lot of hippos and birds of all kinds. A must! Try to go in the evening, just before sunset for the best views and pictures.
