oa East African Geographical Review - The isolation of Buhweju county, Ankole

Volume 1964, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1937-6812



Of all the counties in Ankole, Buhweju is the most isolated. This is true in both a physical and a human sense. Buhweju is situated in north-western Ankole (Fig.1) between the lowland around Mbarara to the south-east, and the Kazinga Channel within the Western Rift Valley, to the north-west. This article is not intended to be a regional or a systematic study of Buhweju, but rather is concerned with the application of landform study to road development problems within the area.
