Lovely secluded spot on lake Malawi. Cheated and spent 2 nights in a chalet for rest, but camping tonight. Canoeing on Lake Malawi another highlight as was pancakes for breakfast made by someone else. Good facilities.
Welcome to our Africa blog
We hope all our families and friends will log in from time to time to see how we're getting on - and just to touch base. We all know we shall miss everyone and this is one of the ways we hope to keep in touch. And, of course, we shall be logging on to Skype and emailing whenever we get the chance. This is a massive adventure for us all with a shed load of planning , but once you've fallen for Africa you just have to see more. So here we go!
