(visited by Nikolaus Bieger)

20-Feb-2006 -- Since 2004 I have taken twice the tar road between Koungheul and Kafrine near which this point lies. The first time I did not know about the Degree Confluence Project, the second time it was in the middle of the night.

On 20 February 2006 I could travel leisurely in daylight and so I went there: 3 km north of the tar road, north-east from Mbaye Mbaye at 16:40h. Altitude: 50 m.

My friend's BMW followed a track which took me 700 m near through savannah forest.

There are no agricultural activities in this area. This is grazing area for goats, at least at this time in the dry season.

Continued at 14N 16W.
