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.
