View of the Banda hills from the Boase road, close to the base of the Boase range of hills, looking northwest. Visible (center) is the gap in the hills midway between Ahenkro and Bongase. To the right (north) is the notch in the mountain in an area known as Chuli. The hills to the far right are those associated with the Bui Dam site. Boase area, 11 October, 1982.
Black Volta River upstream of Bui village, viewed from the riverside track along the river's south bank. Riparian forest typical of the river's banks is visible opposite, on the north bank. On the right in one photo, the mountain near the Bui Dam site is visible. After 2013, the area pictured here was flooded by Bui Lake, formed by construction of the Bui Dam. Two photos. Black Volta River, June, 2001.

An outboard motor-powered fishing boat used by commercial fisherman on the newly formed Bui Lake. The Ewe families who fished the waters of the Black Volta River in this area before Bui Dam was built fished from small canoes. Those small boats are unsafe on the lake formed by Bui Dam because of the lake's unpredictable winds and waves. Fishing on the lake therefore requires access to capital that many local fishermen lack. Trees inundated by the rising lake waters are visible in the background. Two photos.
