Ripera River Source Hike
Rivera River, Kipengere-Mpanga Game Reserve, Tanzania
I've driven past the Kimani Falls of the Ripera River many times on the TANZAM highway, but just realized how relatively close it starts to Ibaga Ranch where we'll be visiting in a few weeks.
The route that the river takes through the game reserve descending north off of the Kipengere Plateau creates a series of periodic waterfalls for the next 30-40 km as it descends to Kimani Falls and eventually in the Usangu Flats in the headwaters of the Great Ruaha River. I'd love to try to attempt this in a 2-3 day hike:
Day 1: Ibaga Ranch - Ripera River source
Day 2: follow Ripera River
Day 3: arrive Kimani Falls

I encounter new places through reading and conversation that fascinate me every day. In 2012 I started this list as a way to track these locations.
