An equator is the intersection of a sphere's surface with the plane perpendicular to the sphere's axis of rotation and containing the sphere's center of mass. The Equator refers to the Earth's equator and is an imaginary line on the Earth's surface equidistant from the North Pole and South Pole, dividing the Earth into the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere. Other planets and spherical astronomical bodies have equators similarly defined.
Lake Bunyonyi is located in south western Uganda between Kisoro and Kabale close to the border with Rwanda. Located at 1,962m above sea level, it is about 25km long and 7 km wide. The depth of the lake is rumored to vary between 44m and 900m, which if true would make the lake the second deepest in Africa.
It is one of the few lakes in the region that is free of bilharzia and safe for swimming. The lake appears on the 5,000 Ugandan shilling note under the title "Lake Bunyonyi and terraces".
