A 40 Kilometer long channel connecting Lake Edward and Lake George called the Kazinga Channel is a place where you can take a boat ride and see a wonderful array of wildlife.
Here you will find the largest concentration of hippos in Africa. The hippos keep themselves cool by staying in the water during the day and graze on land at night. They can stay under water for up to 5 minutes. These large mammals can live up to 40 years of age. In 2004, 2005 and in 2010 many hippos died of anthrax poisoning. We tend to think of anthrax as a tool of terrorism but animals grazing during the dry season are exposed to anthrax outbreaks through ingesting or inhaling the spores.
There were so many waterbuck, cape buffalo, warthogs, elephants and crocodiles and a large variety of birds.
