Tembo 4

To relieve some of the pressure on the Tembo 2 team who attempts to cover TENP (12,000 square kilometers), it is envisaged to deploy a second Tembo monitoring team to TENP on exactly the same basis as Tembo 2. The second TENP team will be called Tembo 4. 

Table below shows the capital expenditure and running budget to set up and maintain an additional Tembo team (Tembo 3 or Tembo 4):
