Travel photo of the day
This is estimated to be the second largest freshwater lake in the world by volume and the second deepest, in both cases, after only Lake Bikal in Siberia. It's also the world's longest freshwater lake. It streams through Tanzania, Burundi, DR Congo and Zambia. It flows into the Congo River and ultimately empties into the Atlantic Ocean.
The photo was taken in Bujumbura when I came through Burundi whiles traveling through East-Southern Africa in February 2013. The sight of the lake was breathtaking.
