The Kazinga Channel in Uganda is a wide, 32-kilometre (20 mi) long natural channel that links Lake Edward and Lake George, and a dominant feature of Queen Elizabeth National Park. The channel attracts a varied range of animals and birds, with one of the worlds largest concentration of hippos and numerous Nile crocodiles. These waters eventually find their way to Lake Victoria and onto the Nile River. Lake George is a small lake with an average depth of only 2.4 metres (7.9 ft) and which is fed by streams from the Rwenzori mountains. Its outflow is through the Kazinga Channel which drains into Lake Edward, water levels fluctuating very little. Over 60 species of birds can be spotted in a typical 2 hour cruise on these waters. Uganda is home to 600 species of birds.
