The beginning of July saw Kayak Africa host the an intrepid family that consisted of mum, dad and two daughters aged 10 and 11 on a kayak safari along Lake Malawi, ending up on Mumbo Island.
The family began their trip at Nanchengwa and spent a couple nights at places along the shore and on an island before kayaking to Mumbo. They had a fabulous time soaking up our wonderful island at the end of their trip and this is what they had to say:
“Thanks to Jurie, Edward and Davey who looked after us on our kayak expedition. We had an absolutely awesome time, loved seeing the lake and life on and around it from a different perspective. Also really enjoyed our accommodation ... finishing with a few nights on Mumbo Island, what a treat!”
Kayak Africa has begun donating all waste paper to a local man called Jefferson Gulo. This local entrepreneur is multi-talented: he turns our paper waste into envelopes, postcards, greeting cards and books which he sells to both tourists and locals in the village. The income he makes is used to help pay for his children’s school fees and feed his family. He also teaches his paper-making skills to youngsters in the village. His project is called “Paper of People” and next month he has an order of 2 000 postcards to be sent to Holland. You can buy his lovely paper products in the little shop on Mumbo Island and at Kayak Africa’s Reception.
