Mwanza is the second biggest town in Tansania.
The Bismarck Rock is a rather odd looking rock in the Victoria Lake close to te ferry station / Nasser road.

Had a daytrip to Bunagana in the Democratic Republic of Congo, in that time the border town was possible but the Virunga National Park was not possible, now (2018( possibl, expensive, not safe.
Stayed at the really nice Golden Monkey Guest House.
And by minibus to Kabale and bus to Kampala.

At other times it is also possible to visit the Parc National des Virunga for seeing the Chimpanzees and Gorillas (visa fee for this is $ 105 plus park fee, booked tour and accomodation, etc., spring 2018, but not safe).
The road until the bord was excellent, and right from the border on one of the worst i have ever seen. There was a armed men from the immigration constantly with me, with a lot of things i was not allowed to take a picture.
