The lake Moero (also written lake Mwero or lake Mweru ) is a Lac located at the border between the Democratic republic of Congo (Katanga) and the Zambia, with approximately 150 kilometers in the south of the Lac Tanganyika. It is approximately 96 kilometers long for 45 kilometers of broad, directed north-eastern/south-western, of a surface of 4650 km ². It has a maximum depth of 37 meters.
It is mainly fed by the river Luapula, which comes from a marsh in the south of the lake. The emissary of the lake is the river Luvua, which feeds the Lualaba, which is in fact the name given to the river Congo in its upper part. The lake includes the island of Kilwa in its southern part.
The lake was insulated a long time, only of the tracks carried out to it, as well Zambian side as Congolese. Since 1987, a bituminized road was built to the Zambian village of Nchelenge, and the population in the neighborhoods grows quickly, benefitting from fishing in the lake.
The principal localities located on Congolese bank are Pweto and Kilwa.
