Nsumbu National Park(Tanzania National Parks)
Nsumbu National park(Tanzania National Parks) covers an area of just over 2000 square km. It also includes 100kms of some of the most pristine shores of this vast Lake. Its beauty also ranges from sandy beaches, vertical cliffs, rocky covers and the natural bays to the rugged hills and the deep valleys of the interior. The Lufubu River winds its way through Nsumbu National Park and pours into Lake Tanganyika.
The western boundary of Nsumbu National Park is buffered by Tondwa Game Management Area, an IUCN category. Nsumbu National Parkis also dissected from west to east by the sizeable and the perennial Lufubu River; which is also demarcates the eastern boundary of the park up to the river‘s discharge into Lake Tanganyika. Nkamba and Chisala Rivers are ephemeral and smaller than the Lufubu; draining Tondwa Swamp into Nkamba and Sumbu Bays respectively, the former through an attractive valley with much wildlife. Much of this park is also covered by combretum thicket, but along the Lake shores.
