NTOMBA DOGS


 


We decided to not use Lomako for the prefix for our new Congo dogs. They come from the village of Bokolekila (Bokoli) which is in the Maringa river drainage. The Mongo people living along the Maringa are called the Ntomba. Therefore we thought it proper to name them after the people living in the area where the dogs were acquired. When acquired three were approximately seven weeks old and two were approximately three months old.

Area the Ntomba dogs were found.

Bokoli is just south of the Lomako reserve
(map revised 1988)


We reached Bokolekila (Bokoli) by trail from Lingunda on a motocycle.  The trail was formely a road.  As far as we could determine, the connections between the villages are trails or bad roads, only passable by foot, bicycle, or motorcycle.  The war has destroyed bridges, ferries and barges and the roads are not being maintained.. This makes transport more difficult in the area. The plantation to the east of Bokoli is now abandoned.


I would like to introduce our new dogs. (Click on image to get full size).
