Swimming lessons on the lake

16 July 2011

Not all the staff at Greystoke grew up on the shores of Lake Tanganyika. Robert John, one of our guides and Godfrey Jumbe, our waiter, are Maasai who before working in Mahale have never had an opportunity to learn to swim.

Hannah Dieker took it upon herself to give the guys a lesson and I must admit they definitely improved, as in they don’t sink straight to the bottom anymore!

Robert, just swim over to the Democratic Republic of Congo and back.

Hannah will have to come back to finish what she has started!
