Nyakazu (or the fault of the Germans) | Burundi

Nyakazu Natural reserve is located in Burundi. A massive gorge like scenery with several hundred metres high cliffs, very close to the border to Tanzania.

In 1914, at the beginning of the First World War, Nyakazu was a German military post built for controlling the eastern part of the country to Tanzania. There can actually still be found some remainders of a German fortification.

Nyakazu fault is a site on the Unesco WHS Tentative list.

Part of a set of 4 stamps about frogs. The Kivu Tree Frog occurs in the highlands of eastern DR Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda.

Thx for sending my friend!
