    Though I enjoyed the festival, I never felt comfortable at the cottage. If there's one thing traveling has taught me, it's how to squirrel myself out of a bad situation. I decided to make my way to cape maclear, which is a backpacking Mecca by the shores of lake malawi roughly 130km away from the cottage.

How could anyone ever dislike this girl, she loves animals and children. We arrived at the Hakuna Matata Camp on Lake Malawi at 5pm and ...

    ... of character
    for Africa. Bizarre! The 2 nights we spent there were spent with
    Nomalha, she would pick us up and take us to some bars and
    restaurants. The funny thing about Nomalha was we were told by my
    friend that she was a Malawian princess!!! Our imaginations were

    individual who had never travelled by ...

    Walked back to camp and set ourselves up two perimeter closelines complete with clothes to mark our area. Decided to do the sunset cruise around Thumbi island. The family from Blantyre was along as well. First we went to a very nice cove and the children fed the fish bread. The fish are all these brilliantly colored tropical fish like you would find in an ...
