Location note from author: If one goes north from the city of Tabora, follow it to Shinyanga. Shinyanga town is the administrative location of the Shinyanga Region, which includes several districts, Meatu District being one of them. From Shinyanga, go east to find the town of Mhunze, which I think is what I know as Mwanhuze, the District headquarters. It was from Mhunze that we took a Land Rover a bit northwest, I think, perhaps 15 km, to reach Mwamanongu. The driver knew how to get to these villages, but there were no road signs anywhere, nor any landmarks on the flat land, and the 'road' was just a path, often in lousy condition for the rare vehicle that would use it.

Editor's note: Mwanhuze and Mwamanongu are wards in en:Meatu District.[1] Meatu is a trapezoidal region that borders the western end of Lake Eyasi and extends roughly 70 km to the northwest.[2] Mhunze is a ward in en:Bariadi District. Walter Siegmund (talk) 05:02, 14 January 2008 (UTC)
