Kavirondo (Winam) Gulf, Lake Victoria T41

This low-oblique view looking south shows the eastern shoreline
of Lake Victoria from Kavirondo Gulf (1) to Speke Gulf (2). The
small islands of Rusinga (3), Mfanaganu (4), and Lolui (5) can
also be seen. The Kavirondo Gulf is surrounded by numerous vol-
canoes that attain elevations in excess of 2100 meters. The
Nyando River (6), which flows westward from the Mau escarpment
along the Kenya Rift Valley, can be seen depositing sediments
into the Kavirondo Gulf. (41C-34-1355, 1356)
