Bujagali Before and After

One day separated my trip to Kenya and my trip to Jinja. Any journey to Jinja would be incomplete without checking the water levels at Bujagali Falls. They’re flooding the falls to improve hydroelectric power in the country (really, they’re just selling the power to Kenya). I thought you might like to see the pre- and post-flood photos.

Notice the two big islands on the left and right?

Same exact location as the previous picture, the islands are under water exept for the tips of the trees.
Take a look at previous posts for more photos. Today, there’s nothing but smooth water sailing. The super duper sad part is that there’s no other place like it unless you travel to Murchison Falls, which is very far away and almost requires safari-like planning (sniffle).
