I hope that you enjoy these times, in every conflict there are casualties... Make sure the campaign justifies the losses!
On your way up to Kenya I am very curious of your route from moz to Tanzania, are you doing the easy way around the west side of Lake Malawi, or are you going to blunder on the East side?
If you are going to take the Eastern route, I have heard rumors that it is possible to cross the Rovuma river to the West of Niassa National park.
However this is really difficult territory, and means traversing hunting blocks... From there you head North East to (I think) Songea again challenging bush tracks and challenging Navigation.
At Songea you have the exciting prospect of Heading North around the West of the Selous through Njombe.
East along the Coast through Lindi and up the coast via Kiliwa.
Both offer an unbelievably exciting prospect of coming across voracious Lions with truly horrific reputations.
I know that it was possible to cross the Rovuma at the Tanzania/Mozambique border on the coast by Dhow. This is a far easier trip but misses out the best (and hardest-most dangerous) part of Mozambique.
Enjoy it, and feed back on the HUBB please.
If I can offer you any advice at all, I would say avoid Dodoma, doesnt matter which route you take through Tanzania, avoiding Dodoma will mean a much more eventful trip.
So many people take the easy route through tanzania, and they miss out on so so much. Lake Tanganiyka's coast would make an exciting ride if you cross country through Mozambique after doing the Mozambique coast.
This small stretch of Africa has so much to offer: Inland wildlife wilderness, Lake shore line, Exotic coastal beaches. And everyone does the overlander route.
But its one hell of a trip
