Tanzania - December 10th, 2010

This APM image focuses on the Mwanza Region in Tanzania. The neighbouring regions are Kagera to the west, Shinyanga to the south, and Mara to the east. Furthermore, Lake Victoria (dark green) provides the northern border.

Multiple islands and bays can be seen by the jagged shores of the lake. Moving southward, a small area of hills can be observed at the bottom of the image. The Geita Gold Mine, an open pit mine, is located by these hills.
