Located to the south of Toro, Ankole had agricultural settlements concentrated to the south and west of the Kasese to Mbarara road. Cattle and small stock herding were found throughout Ankole. The first settlements shown were in the area from south of Lake George to Bushenyi and on to the southeast of Bushenyi. The inhabitants were primarily cultivators of bananas and root crops. Further east toward Mbarara, groups of Ankole cattle but few corrals were seen. To the south east of Mbarara further cultivation was seen. Photo coverage of the area north of Bushenyi was compromised by low light levels associated with a severe, passing storm. Settlements in the Bushenyi area of north and west Ankoli were small with associated banana patches, root crops and horizontal ridges on the land caused by heavy goat feeding. Agricultural settlements located to the east and south of Mbarara were larger and were found within more extensive banana groves. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ...... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ...... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
