Uganda and Kenya – December 4th, 2012

Several lakes can be seen by the Uganda-Kenya-Tanzania (clockwise from lower left) border area. Visible at the lower left is Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa. To its north is the irregularly shaped Lake Kyoga. In the upper right corner is Lake Turkana, colored by algal growth and sediments, some of which enter from the Turkwel River, which can be seen flowing across Kenya and into the southern part of the lake, on the western side.
