      ... The lake is beautiful, with 3/4 of the world's colorful freshwater fish found in this lake. If you stay in the clear water, it is safe and a beautiful place to snorkel.

      The last day we had double services back on the patio - and the heat slightly modified by a gentle breeze. Lunch was a common meal with all the brethren consisting of Nshima, rice, beef stew and some vegetables. We had the blessing of children (5) during the middle of the ...

      Awake at 4.38 in desperate need if a toilet I arose to spot 4 other trunks betwee me and where I thought the toilet block was. The loud sound of the lake kept me and everyone else awake so breKfast was on time got a change. A 7am leave meant we left after half 7. Our first view stop overlooking the lake wa disappointing due to the sun but a couple of kids came to say 'Jambo' within 10 minutes there were around 15 ...

      ... in Malawi!!
      (Maybe she has a bit of princess in her then!!) It was great to meet
      Nom and find out more about Malawi, hopefully we will meet again,
      maybe in London???

      The next day we headed to Cape Maclear,

      frustrating!!!!!!!!! Anyhow, we got there safe and sound but very
      tired. We pitched up not feeling too impressed with the campsite, Fat
      Monkeys. With this, ...
