The Kazinga Channel is shared by Lake Edward and Lake Gorge, running 40 kilometers between the two lakes.

Nothing like the swarms of pelicans on the shore, birds flying all over the channel and the boat takes you slowly as you take your Uganda wildlife pictures along the shores. A rewarding game viewing in the afternoon, to say the least.
