Fusis "LOST"

LOST

well the popular series LOST starts on C4 today.. so here is my GTC version of the popular television series

Please make intelliegent guesses. Inorder to make it a detecting type of GTC I am allowing NO country guesses or continent guesses. Take out your map plot and give the answer please. All the images are clues....

anxious relatives await the missing flight which is now... LOST




..and the passengers are lost in the middle of nowhere..



they wander the barren land and are glad to come across some water..



they think that if there is water there must be a village nearby.. they trek the waterside for a few miles.. and BINGO !!



the villagers help the lost passengers by imediately calling SSC and asking the GTC forumers to locate them and take them home..



so who is up for the task ? where are the lost passengers.. what town are they holed up in ??

Please help them

( 3 points for the town name.. no country or continent guesses )

Nice .
The continent must be Africa
The vegetation looks like the Savanne. So no Northern Afica.
The river is clear and thin, so the source must be near. Hilly or mountanious country.
I see some sand, some maybe an area that is threatned by the desert.
There is a boat that looks like a ferry, so a big city or sea should be near.

My country possibilities: Burkina Faso Mali, Nigeria, Chad, Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia, Kenia, Guinnee, Kongo, Angola, Zambia, Malawi, Tanzania, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Botswana.

VERY good observation !

If you figure out a few other clues it will narrow down the options even further
