'Day 10' >

Takwai, or the journey at the end of the world!

01/08/2013 - Route : Mamfe -> Tinto -> Takwai -> Kumba

A big day in perspective and a late departure (imperative of cash withdrawal of the driver for the repairs of the vehicle) augur no good. We thus leave Mamfe at about 10 am, having been violently attacked by a cock, obliging us to perch on the roof of the car... which courage!
After first 2 good points of fishing, here we are in the direction of Takwai. We shall need more than 2 hours to be 30 km, with some very difficult passages (stones, mud). But we shall be rewarded!
One hour of fishing later, it's time to join Kumba. The route is long, difficult, and will end late, at night (at about 8:30 pm)! The day ends at 01:15 am of the morning after changes of water complicated further to numerous dead fishes due to the harshness of the route.
Tomorrow should be a less intense day but it does not mean without surprises!
