Cycling 2800 KM in Angola in February and March 2014, the most positive surprise among my whole Trans-African journey.

This camp was situated a short pirogue ride downriver from the village of Ngeleza, about halfway between Bunia and Beni, in what was then the Haut-Zaire region of Zaire, now Orientale province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (ca. 1° 16' N, 29° 42' W).
