Smoke on the water – Lake Victoria – Der Victoriasee

e/d 9 pictures

On our first trip through Uganda five years ago, we´ve already heard some stories about Lake Victoria´s lake flies, small insects spending their early life cycles in the lake before transforming into flies and swarming out in vast numbers, all at the same time. It would look just like columns of smoke on the open lake, we were told. Back then, I got so curios, so desperate on taking pictures of that phenomenon, but we hardly had any time left for exploring the lake. Weiterlesen

Toro Crater Lakes – Die Toro Kraterseen

e/d 32 pictures

Starting north of Fort Portal, a concentration of crater lakes runs down south alongside the western border of Kibale National Park with its groups of habituated chimpanzees. The crater lakes south of Fort Portal sprawl over a large region with a lush, hilly countryside and a patchwork of cultivated areas and remnants of swamps as well as indigenous forest with a profusion of birds, monkeys and butterflies. One of the most beautiful is Lake Nkuruba, where the community-run Original Lake Nkuruba Nature Reserve is protecting the surrounding rainforest which is bursting with black-and-white colobus, red colobus, red-tailed and other monkeys. The lakes tend to be quite deep, and the water is clear and cool (but not too cool)– perfect for a relaxing swim. Weiterlesen

Die Kariba-Talsperre – Kariba dam wall

Ein paar Kilometer östlich von Siavonga liegt der Kariba-Damm, über den eine Straße nach Simbabwe führt. Der Bau der Talsperre wurde 1955 durch die Regierung von Rhodesien und Nyasaland, die als Zentralafrikanische Föderation (CAF) Teil des Commonwealth war, beschlossen, und schon im selben Jahr begannen die ersten Vorarbeiten am Sambesi. 57.000 Menschen mussten im Zuge des Baus umgesiedelt werden, die meisten von ihnen vom Stamm der Tonga.
