    Had a very pleasant stay in the Nkopola lodge. Manager Ellard Salva was very helpful. Rooms were nice and staff was pleasant. Beautiful buffet breakfast (included). Location on the beach is tropical.

    We bounced around in our very hot little turbo prop plane with all the thermals in the heat. After about 40 minutes we had reached an altitude high enough to be cooled down to be a warm comfortable. We bounced around again coming down but landed on time.

    ... we could hear them fighting as well. After the boat trip there was a couple of hours free time to relax before lunch after which I had a swim - or cool - in the small pool before moving to the hammock on the veranda of my room to read and just listen! At 3.30pm it was afternoon tea time before setting off on another game drive. It was hard to beat the sightings of yesterday afternoon but we still had a lovely time. We went to a ...

    I was collected this morning by Peter at 8.30am on the dot. We left Mua Mission for what would be a two hour drive to Liwonde. It was interesting seeing the different villages and small towns. The market was amazing - it was a hive of activity with all sorts for sale: live chickens, dead chickens, meat, fruit and vegetable, plus furniture etc...

The noise they were making was incredible; they were having such fun. In the evening there was a church gathering in the field behind the lodge and the sound of people singing was fantastic. Someone was playing a traditional drum and it was ...

    ... almost completed school block, we piled back onto the bus and waved our farewells.

    The final ride out was bittersweet. On one hand it was sad to be leaving, on the other, we craved the comforts of home. And those comforts were not that far away! We drove a couple of hours north to Cape Maclear on Lake Malawi, a small beach resort. There we spent our last day preparing for the long trip ...
