Nyumba ya Mungu is a manmade lake in the Kilimanjaro region. The reservoir is situated in the Pangani River Valley of the Masai Steppe, about 50 km south of Moshi. It is fed by two major inflows, the rivers Kikuletwa and Ruvu which drain some 7,500 square kilometres (2,900 sq mi) of catchment consisting of wooded grassland, forest, true desert, and alpine desert.
It was constructed for the purposes of irrigation, hydro-electric power and to start a local fishing industry. The reservoir was completed in December 1965 however the irrigation scheme had not yet been developed. The plan was to build a dam that would have served the purpose of storing flood flow, which would allow the development of some 30,000 acres of irrigated farming and generation of electricity power.
We can get there shortly by walking from moshi town through the area of majengo mji mpya. There is fee to enter, for all people, and there is a duty upon leaving if you were to harvest anything. By 1970 the lake had a thriving Tilapia fishery production. However, this did not last long and subsequent reports from 1972 and 1973 showed a major decline in fish product
At full capacity the retention time of the lake is one year but due to abnormally low rainfall, the reservoir was not full, and the retention time was nearer nine months. The lake is polymictic and a deep wind-driven current is maintained by the Trade Winds for most of the year. Dear visitors this is another full day tour that will take you guys to a great place for birds, with fishing settlements and their culture around the lake. We will also cross the TPC Sugar Plantation, a scenic drive as long as you pass through a very silence place , cool temperature and fresh air this will make your mind more refreshing.
