These are two Lakes that are both rift lakes but that’s as far their similarity probably goes. Edward is (2325 sq. km), and has an elongated shape and is a deep lake at 913m.  It is shared by Uganda and Congo. Lake George is smaller (250sq km) is shallow and lined by swamp. It’s silted, and the silt washing down from the Rwenzori threatens its existence as it’s no more than 2.4m The two are connected by the 40km Kazinga Channel that is a meandering silver strand which runs right through  Queen Elizabeth National Park.
