Tanzani and DRC - June 9th, 2010

Lake Tanganyika, divided among the four countries of Burundi, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Tanzania and Zambia, is surrounded by clouds here, although the skies above the lake itself are clear.

The DRC (45%) and Tanzania (41%) possess the majority of the lake. Here, the Tanzania side is mostly obscured by cloud cover, while the DRC side is much clearer and shows parts of the Congo Rainforest, which covers most of the low-lying central basin of the Congo River, and the savannas typical of the southern parts of the country.
