Africa Birds and Birding Article : Silhoettes in the Swamps -Uganda’s Papyrus Specials by Keith Barnes

Deep in the heartland of Uganda the Nile rises in Lake Victoria before snaking its way through Sudan and Egypt. En route it plunges over the spectacular Murchison Falls, then slows and pans into a splendid series of marshes and back-water swamps before flowing into Lake Albert.

If you are having trouble to decide which should be your next travel destination take five, a cold beer, a comfortable seat and read through this evocative article published in Africa : Birds and Birding (February/March 2000) describing the suite of papyrus, marsh, swamp and river specials found along the Nile and associated Lake Victoria basin.

and enjoy!!….
