Where is Mwanza?

Mwanza is in the north-west of Tanzania on the southern shore of Lake Victoria, at an altitude of 1,100m. Surrounded by hills and dramatic exposed outcrops of rounded granite rocks, it is sometimes known as 'the Rock City'. With a population of well over half a million, it is Tanzania's fastest growing city, but still retains a laid back easy-going air.
