Mai Mai Base

On my first day at Lubero we went on a reconnaissance patrol to the Mai Mai base in the South. When we arrived there we found it deserted.

The Mai Mai currently consist out of a few factions in the DRC. In earlier days they were known for cannibalism. There are still some reports of this practise. The movie Apocalypse Now is actually based on the Mai Mai, but it being an American movie it was changed to the Vietnam environment.
