Lake Malawi – Where The Malawi Are We?

If you were to look back at the series of maps in this blog, you might see that we are winding east and north across the tip of Africa. Now in the country of Malawi – and not one of those famous African countries like Kenya or Egypt but of the smaller, less famous variety. Malawi is heavily populated and hence few animals but possessed of a large inland lake which looks a lot like the ocean when you’re standing on the shore.

This was a place to go SCUBA diving in fresh water for the first

We landed at Kande Beach resort for three nights – kind of a bore after all the neat game drives and such but not a bad place to spend a few days. The diving was nice, unspectacular and Kande Beach is a long way away from anything. Bar, the lake for swimming, sunbathing if you’re angling for skin cancer. We got a small cabin for $40-50 a night though we could have camped out for free. Small bathroom, complete with lizards and mangoes falling off the tree onto the roof.

The only relief was a wonderful storm that built up over the lake and swept us all along with it, knocking out the ever tenuous lights/electricity but not severe enough to cause the beer to overheat.

    Terry, enjoyed (as usual), but you didn’t have to show the roasting goat – ugh!

      I don’t remember wearing any necklaces in Africa but then my memory isn’t what it used to be. The roast goat was a whole day preparation using Benji’s sand-traction pads as uprights. That was pretty clever – I didn’t have any goat so you’ll have to ask Chiyemi what it was like. Glad you are enjoying the pictures.
