Picture of


Prevailing wind is from the south-east. A drainage ditch has been dug around the north end in April 2014 by Medecins Sans Frontieres, who have a hospital alongside the airstrip. They are also regularly resurfacing and levelling the airstrip, which is made of local soil that becomes very slippery when wet and easily allows sinking. They have regular flights by Cessna Caravan, and in April 2014 have also received an Avro Andover and a Fokker 27 and 50, though these larger aircraft attempt landing only after at least one full day without rain. Samaritan's Purse land their DC3 here, and the UN/WFP regularly use Caravans and Twin Otters.
