Stretching for over 200 square kilometres, Lake Langano is popular among tourists and locals alike for swimming, watersports and offers spectacular hippo viewing. The area surrounding the lake is home to baboons, warthogs, hippos and a variety of birds that makes for good bird watching. More wildlife can be found in East Langano Nature Reserve on the eastern shore of the lake; here visitors can spot Colobus monkeys and more than 300 bird species living in the beautiful lakeside forest.
