This Is permanent for right party Miscellaneous Wanted BY LAWRENCE GREEV CAPE TOWN Airlines strike across Africa and motor roads also zigzag through desert bush and jungle But there are still many far outposts and remote corners that can be reached only by the old primitive ways of transport Oldest of all is the afoot with porters or camels over narrow paths In the "copper belt" of Northern Rhodesia I once met a Nigerian native trader who had walked there from the walled city of Krno a distance of more than 2000 miles with his merchandise He had come by those narrow trails which form a network over Africa footpaths leading from village to village stamped out by bare feet many centuries ago and followed ever since You can cross the continent from Loanda to Dar-es-Salaam keeping always to these tracks sure that you are taking the easiest possible route There is no room on them for a motor car The main roads of today where railways stretch up to the highlands from the sea are the slave and ivory caravan routes of yesterday Such a one is the Arab highway leading northwest from Mombasa to the Congo and beyond The present Lobito bay railway tracks are laid over the bones of thousands of slaves And farther north still bearing an old-fashioned cavalcade is the Lake Chad trail that begins on the west coast and ends on the shores of the Red sea Bicycles Used On the narrow paths bicycles are seen with here and there a swaying camel But in the land of the tsetse fly where pack animals can not live the foot safari remains the greatest cavalcade of all and the native porter with his head load is still the most reliable carrier Such journeys may be made in greater luxury than newcomers to Africa expect You can have drinks off the ice hot baths a seven-course dinner and a comfortable bed under a mosquito net The equipment is split up into regulation fifty-pound head loads and it is merely a matter of taking a sufficient number of porters The Swahili porter has helped to make history in Africa No great enterprise in the tropics has been completed without his aid He carried the first steamers (in sections) to the Great Lakes and guided all the explorers to the unknown hinterland On the pay-sheets porters appear under such names as Kiboko (hippo) Rasasi (cartridge) or Piga Mzinga (fire the cannon) simply as a matter of convenience They are strong It is by no means rare to see the head porter dance along for a mile at the end of the day to encourage his tired companions Shoulder loads are moved in unison at the end of a song a juggling A supper will
