Sam & Liz on RK

We are very happy to have Sam and Liz on RK, both from UK and working in Climate Change and Environment. They will stay untill the end of april. Our new 25 year old assistant project manager, Daudi Zabloni from Mwanza Tanzania, has started last week. He is an agriculture graduate.

On their trip around our plot they found an egg laying turtle, and a stone on which slaves were tied some 150 years ago.

BBC Documentary ( 2008 ) about Ras Kisimani

RK diving

In 2008 the BBC made a documentary about the worlds oceans. One of the DVD’s was about the Indian Ocean and its Coastal Waters, and on this DVD was a section dedicated to Kisimani Mafia, the ancient town that once was on Ras Kisimani. In 1872 it was hit by a hurricane and partly dissapeared in the ocean.
This part shows and discribes underwater remains and findings right in front of our beach.

Some more screenshots taken from the DVD are in this presentation:
