Dag 30 . 1 graad suid Lake Victoria

Eerste maand weg van die huis en alles gaan goed. Ons is gesond, bakkies hou en geen probleme. Die polisie en verkeersbeamptes wuif ons deur by die padblokkades en ons voel baie veiliger as in SA. Die mense hier kan nie verstaan dat ons van Suid Afrika is en wit is nie, Eers as hulle hoor ons is hier gebore en so ons Pa,s en Oupa,s en Oupagrootjies, se hulle met n groot smile ‘but then you are Africans‘ !

Om die Victoria meer te sien is n belewenis en n droom wat waar word. Hier het Livingsone, Stanley, Speke en Burton rondgeswerf vir jare op soek na die oorsprong van die Nyl, gefinansier deur die National Geographic society van England. Tog jammer dat alles vernoem is na die ou Queen tannie van England. Die meer is 70000 vierkante Km groot , so groot soos Ierland en 30 miloen mense maak gebruik van sy water.Ons bly by die Speke Bay lodge met n fantastiese meer uitsig en eet die heerlikste Tilapa vis wat in die meer gevang is.

One month after leaving home and all is well. We are healthy, vehicles are in shape and we do not have any problems. The police and traffic officials wave us through at the road blocks and we feel much safer than in SA.

The people find it hard to understand that we are white and from South Africa. When they hear that we were born here, our fathers, grandfathers and great-grandfathers were born here, they say with a broad smile, but then you are Africans!

To see Lake Victoria is an experience and a dream fulfilled. Here, funded by the National Geographic Society of England, Livingstone, Stanley, Speke and Burton wandered around for years searching for the source of the Nile. What a pity that everything was named after the old aunty queen of England.

The lake spans 70000 m? km – the size of Ireland – and 30 million people make use of its water.

We stay in the Speke Bay Lodge with an amazing view of the lake and feast on the most delicious Tilapa fish, caught in the lake.
