    following day when I read my Facebook messages. I got to sleep around 2am on
    Saturday morning expecting to have a lay in to sleep of the oncoming hang over
    however I was awoken at 5am by Lalahe. The previous day Tom and I had arranged
    to go into the bush with Lalahe to experience some Maasai traditions such as

    ... intentions of climbing the mountain; it's four days slow slog to the top and two days down, but I did hike with a guide to Ndoro waterfall.

    ... However, the brakes are very low and we can only proceed at a snails pace. We arrive in the dark and proceed to Jacobsens Beach campsite just outside of Kigoma. It is also next to Lake Tanganyika, but a totally different setting as Lake Shore Lodge. However, it is pleasant. The ablutions are clean, but there is no hot water.
