Lake Chamo is 32 km long and 13km wide at an elevation of1.235 m above sea level.

It is rich in a variety of fishes including tiger-fish, giant Nile Perch, catfish and tilaphia.
In the bays, a number of hippopotamus emerge at dusk to graze on the grassy shores.
Lake Chamo is also sanctuary for several thousand Nile Crocodiles, which are up to 7m in length.
Bird life is also enjoyable at the lake. Hordes of yellow wiver birds flit constantly through the trees, and vividly-colored king fishers skim the lake where great white pelicans storks, ibises, hornbills and cormorants plumb the waters for food.
