This stunning card shows a view of Lake Kivu, forming the border of E. Congo and Rwanda. Set amidst the verdant Virungas mountains, this is one of the highest and deepest lakes in Africa. It is also one of just three known "exploding lakes," whose unstable Rift Valley geology have shown violent volcanic movements affecting its water level and contours.
This card accurately shows the state of many routes in Africa during seasonal rains. In this card, a huge logging truck is stuck in meter-thick rivulets of wet mud, and convey the difficulty of transport and communications in Africa's interior.
