Malawi

Malawi’s warm and open invitation extends from its people to its soothing freshwater lake.

Though not discovered by, another of Livingstone’s extraordinary happenings was Lake Malawi affectionately named by him as Lake Nyasa (Lake of Stars) for the nocturnal dancing of the fisherman’s lights over the some 29,000 square kilometres lake.

The third largest in Africa, ninth in the world, but perhaps most importantly number one in species of fish. 

Boasting approximately 1000 species of splendid cichlids alone, its glossy surface offers perfect conditions for a myriad of watersports including underwater photography, water snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking and of course sailing in all its forms.
