UMBWE water sources

Where are the water sources (along the trail) in the Umbwe route in June? Is it better to treat the water with iodine or boiling it?

There are two rivers before the first camp, Umbwe & Lonzo rivers.

After that, its Barancco and no problem the whole route for water.

Although water is boiled it is always better to treat it with whatever you use as your prefered treament.
