The whitish rocks at Maswa Point, located between the Lugufu and Msehezi Rivers.
The ecology of the cichlid fishes in Lake Tanganyika holds special fascination.


The craggy ledges of Maswa Point lie between the Kirando and Lubengela villages.
The bay in which Lubengela is located was known to Moore as Maswa.


A lone fisherman at Maswa Point, probably from the nearby Lubengela or Kirando, fishing with hook and line in the shallows.


Adjacent to Kirando village are the whitish rocks of Maswa. In crevices on the barren vertical wall of rocks grow plenty
of Aloe plants. On top of the cliffs a cassava field is spreading out. The picture was captured in December 2007.


Thunderstorm approaching Maswa. If not quickly finding safety in a sheltered bay, you may soon be
in the middle of a raging inferno with heavy winds and downpour.
