“The African Great Lakes (Swahili: Maziwa Makuu) are a series of lakes constituting the part of the Rift Valley lakes in and around the East African Rift. They include Lake Victoria, the third-largest fresh water lake in the world by area”. Adventure started from Maputo, Mozambique and ended in Kampala, Uganda. Traveling through Tropical, Sub-tropical regions, drier weather in the Savannah also low drop temperature in some mountains I experienced a large temperature range and really needed to be prepared. Without a compass, no papers maps, no GPS and no Swahili knowledge I didn’t really knew where I was going but that was the all fun part of it, because it always obliged me to interact with the local people. Due to the rainy season I was unable to pass on Great Lake Tanganyika but check this adventure on the next spring edition of the magazine TREVL, de moto pelo mundo .
