Abstract
The Musoma district of Tanganyika spreads about 100 miles from the shores of the Lake Victoria eastward into the Serengeti plains. The population is largely concentrated within 50 miles of the lake shore where the rainfall averages over 30 in., tailing off to the east on to the edge of the plains where the average is less than 25 in. and the population nomadic. The countryside except in the rains has an arid appearance and in the past the population has been concentrated round the available water supplies which have now been increased by digging numerous dams.
