Monday, March 11 I left to visit Selous Game Reserve to approximately 250 km of which a hundred kilometers of track into final which I traversed in 6:30. Taking into account the conditions of price it was too late to enter the park I sought a bivouac, the camp-sites either were closed or dilapidated. The ranger of Mtemere Gate indicated to me the Mpingo Lodge at 15 km before the entry of the park.
Tuesday morning as of 8:00 I entered Selous Game Reserve with the intention to bivouac in Tagalala campsite by traversing the track which skirts the river; I encountered some difficulties with portions of flooded tracks. Fauna was rare; I did not observe any predator. In end according to I moved towards the lake Tagalala where the camp-site is. On the way I met guides of Manze Lodge which told me that the track was impracticable and that it was necessary to pass by the track of Behobeho. After several very muddy parts of the track I gave up my progression at approximately 4 kilometers of the camp-site. Being the only vehicle I decided to turn back and, taking into account the late hour, 18:30, to bivouac on the track in full bush surrounded with wild animals. Of course I telephoned to the ranger of Mtemere Gate to inform him of my position. The night was liable without importunate visitor.
Wednesday, March 13 I left the bush to leave the park at the trade-union hour, I arrived at Mtemere Gate around 10:30 to mean my astonishment and my dissatisfaction not to have been informed that Tagalala camp-site was unattainable due to flooded tracks. To have rest I stopped in Mpingo Lodge before turning over, 250 km, in Dar es Salaam.
Thursday, March 14 I left as of 8:00 Mpingo Lodge for Sunrise Beach Resort where I arrived after 7:40 of road stops included to make wash my truck covered with mud.
In the night of Friday March a truck discharged material; in the small hour I realized that they were a large number of chairs and tables. Around 8:00 I informed myself at the reception of Lodge; the hostess tells me that there was a big spectacle on Sunday with much of music and people. I decided to leave the spot to go to install me at Traveler's Lodge in Bagamoyo for two nights.
Sunday morning before the hot summer days I visited the old city along the Ocean Road, narrow street between buildings of which some are in the process of becoming ruins. Bagamoyo, here, was the capital of the colony of German East Africa from 1887 to 1891. The visit of the fish market was one great moment of user-friendliness so much the fishermen had adopted me. Then I passed close to corrugated iron hangars under which fires flamed under immense basins containing of very small fishes. I continued to traverse the Ocean Road whose building still had a pretty worked door. Further at the edge of the Indian Ocean Customs House of two stages kept its heyday splendorr. German Old Boma expect a hypothetical restoration, it was a strengthened dwelling. Finally a cubic building, Old Fort, which was also used as prison for the slaves.
