is more accessible of the two and is easily reached on a good dirt road
that branches north off the main Mbale-Soroti road at Kapiri, 20km southeast
of Soroti. Continue along this road to the lake edge and arrange with
a local fisherman to take you across to the northwestern corner where
a colony of Fox's Weavers nest in the waterside vegetation. Numbers peak
