It is not to be, but many people confuse what lakes are against what ponds or rivers are. The difference is quite simple: a lake is not a pond or a river.

That sounds too regular and that’s true but with the knowledge that there are millions of lakes scattered around the world, here is an even more exciting fact about what a lake is to help you get out of this web of confusion: a lake is a body of water that has land surrounding it.

Lakes are mostly natural but living in a world of men and women alike, there are also a few lakes that came about as a result of the activities of mankind.

In these subsequent pages, we share with you a few of the world’s largest man-made lakes that are found in Africa. And to get this started, you should be excited to learn that the first on the world’s list is found in Africa.
