Albert Nyanza

Albert Nyanza (the Little Luta Nzige of Speke), a lake in Central Africa between 2° 45' N. and 2° S. lat., 80 miles W. of Victoria Nyanza. It is 2,720, feet above sea-level, and is about 140 miles long from N. to S., by 40 broad, being bounded on the W. by the Blue Mountains and on the E. by high cliffs. The White Nile, entering it on the W. side, runs from its N. extremity. It was actually discovered in 1864 by Sir Samuel and Lady Baker, though its existence was mentioned by natives to Speke and Grant.
