2d555f55-7b2a-488f-b1e8-aa503e036f4c.jpgA cache on the treasure island of BONGOYO

The old BAOBAB

20d2bb65-0556-46dc-99ec-a06c2a41bed4.jpg This is a Water Tight Film Canister and only contains the log. Bring your own pencil.

Adansonias (or simply BAOBAB) reach heights of 5 to 30 m (16 to 98 ft) and have trunk diameters of 7 to 11 m (23 to 36 ft). Some baobabs are reputed to be many thousands of years old, which is difficult to verify, as the wood does not produce annual growth rings, though radiocarbon dating may be able to provide age data.

Bongoyo Island is an uninhabited island in Tanzania, situated 2.5km north of the country's largest city, Dar es Salaam. It is the most frequently visited of the four islands of the Dar es Salaam Marine Reserve (DMRS) and a popular daytrip for both tourists and Tanzanian residents alike for snorkelling and sunbathing.

The island lies close to the Msasani Peninsula (in the Kinondoni district of the city) and is reachable by means of a 30 minute boat ride from the mainland. The point of departure for most visitors to the island is 'The Slipways' hotel complex on the western side of the Msasani Peninsula.

Avoid contact to animals, they can be very dangerous! Don't stick your Finger in the hole before you are sure that no one is inside ...
