Today we managed 53 kilometers that took about 7 hours of paddling time.
We are pleased with our achievement for the day. It was hard work, but tonight we know we only have 30 km left to Kigoma where we will meet up with Brent Wibberley for the last leg of the trip.
We paddled past the Malagarasi delta. The Malagarasi - Muyovozi area is a Ramsar site. We moved from crystal clear to dark brownish water for about 10 km. There are a lot of reeds in the area and we had to row around it. The Tanzanian government is working on a project to build a bridge across the river.
On the angling side we are not doing that well. We still have not caught anything yet. The only exciting thing that happened was when Morne had to dive into the water to save one of the artificial lures that got stuck behind a big rock.
We do now have cell phone contact up until Monday when we will start with the last leg to Bujumbura in Burundi.
