    Background: THE EAST AFRICAN SAFARI... THE SWEDES CARL SKOGH AND LENNART BERGGREN IN A VOLVO AT YESTERDAY'S (SATURDAY'S) HALFWAY MARK IN NAIROBI BEFORE SETTING OFF AGAIN SOUTHWARDS INTO TANGANYIKA.

    DRIVING FOR KENYA IN A COMET SEDAN - VISCOUNT MANDEVILLE AND PETER WALKER. LIKE THE OTHER COMPETITORS, THEY HAD A TOUGH DRIVE THROUGH UGANDA TO THE NAIROBI CHECKPOINT.

    ALSO DRIVING FOR KENYA, G. GOBY AND C. TREDWAY IN A FORD ZODIAC BUT IT IS THE FORD CONTINAS THAT HAVE TAKEN THE LEAD TODAY.

    LARGE CROWDS WERE OUT TO GREET THE DRIVERS IN THE BLAZING SUN. A SHORT SPELL IN BED FOR SAFARI ACES AND THEN OFF AGAIN ON THE SOUTHERN LEG. HERE'S KENYA'S J DAVIES IN A SAAB HEADING FOR NMANGA... AND EVENTUALLY DAR-ES-SALAAM. AFTER THAT IT WILL BE NORTHWARDS ALONG THE COAST TO MOMBASSA NORTHWEST THEN AND SO BACK TO NAIROBI BY, THEY HOPE, ON MONDAY MORNING...

    THE LAST LEG OF THE SAFARI IS THE TOUGHEST PART OF THE 3,180-MILE (5,132 KMS) ROUTE. BUT IT IS NOT SOME OF THE WORLD'S WORST ROADS THAT ARE ALWAYS THE HAZARD. DRIVERS HAVE REPORTED THAT STONES HAVE BEEN THROWN AT THEM BY IRATE AFRICANS AND IN A FEW CASES, FLAMING TORCHES WERE USED AS AMMUNITION.
