Sport fishing among tourists, especially for Nile Perch, has become increasingly popular, both on the shore and from boats, as the west bank of the Lake contains more nutrients compared to the east bank. About 100 species of bird have been recorded in the lake and in most areas there are crocodiles and monitor lizards, other types of wildlife include gazelles, jackals, desert foxes, and various smaller desert mammals.
