The hammock was the only conveyance available for travel on land. It was swung beneath a bamboo pole carried on the shoulders of two strong African men. They could travel 20 to 30 miles a day. In normal time, there were four pairs of men for the hammock, two men carrying at a time. Men strong enough were almost impossible to find because they were likely to go off to work in the mines.

A decree of December 1888, permits all private associations whose object is of a religious, scientific, or philanthropic nature to acquire a civil personality and to obtain grants for land which shall not exceed 50 ha in extent in any one locality. In the case of the Roman Catholics, however, a convention concluded with the Holy See in 1906 enables missions established with the consent of the State to receive 100 or even 200 ha of agricultural land free of charge.
