Last updated: October 17, 2017 at 3:37 am

Lake Tanganyika (Central Africa) measures 660 km (410 miles) along its centre line. The ancient lake which mostly lies in Tanzania (46%) and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (40%), is also the second oldest freshwater lake in the world, the second largest freshwater lake by volume, and the second deepest of all lakes, with Russia’s Lake Baikal leading in every category.
