The Kazinga Channel is a wide, 32-kilometre (20 mile) long natural channel that connects Lake Edward and Lake George, and a dominant feature of Queen Elizabeth National Park in #Uganda .
On the Eastern side of the Kazinga Channel is #LakeGeorge , a tiny lake with an overall depth of 2.4 metres and 250 sq. km. This lake is fed by streams flowing from the spectacular #Rwenzori Mountains just North of the lake, and the outflow is through the channel, and drains West into the adjacent #LakeEdward (among the main freshwater lakes in Uganda), which covers a total area of 2000 sq. km.
The channel is an oasis for many of the fascinating species that inhabit the park, and is home to one of the world's largest concentrations of #hippos and numerous Nile crocodiles.
Globetrotters can organise a two-hour interactive boat tour along the channel, giving visitors the chance to cruise just metres from hundreds of enormous hippos and buffalos while elephants linger on the shoreline. While on the tour, you will hear from knowledgeable rangers who will provide you with fascinating information about the channel and its inhabitants, as well as answer any questions you might have.
The boat tour on the #KazingaChannel can be enjoyed as part of a scheduled tour, or you may take the option of a totally exclusive cruise, to experience this momentous nature encounter privately
