The Great Lakes is an almost unknown region, a mythical place that is eternally green. A crossroads for all nomadic peoples, it is also the source of two of Africa’s great rivers: the Nile and the Congo. From the breathtaking waterfalls where the Nile meets Lake Victoria, a veritable inland sea scattered with hundreds of lush green islands, to Lake Albert sustained by the eternal snows of the Rwenzori Mountains. Lake Edward, entirely located in a large protected area, is an eco-system unique in its diversity of African fauna. Lake Kivu, which lies on the border with the Congo, is a rare African gem, created by volcanoes and surrounded by mountains and hills.
