Weather and Landscape
This month was characterised by hot conditions and the odd shower of rain - we are now keenly awaiting the floral flush that follows the rains.
Join our guided Lake Malawi Sea Kayak Safari in April 2013!
Discover the places between the places where tourists usually go! With the best multi-day sea kayaking in southern Africa on offer, this is an opportunity for adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts to get wet, get active, and get out there!
Covering 100 kilometres in five days of paddling, the route has it all: secluded bays, deserted islands, mile-long beaches and open-water crossings. Not to mention the warm, clear and seemingly endless waters of the world's fourth largest lake, the African fish-eagles, the tropical fish and the encircling forested hills that form the rim of the African Rift Valley.
Days will be spent paddling, swimming, snorkelling and generally working up an appetite. Overnight stops are at a variety of lodges and campsites along the way. Kayak Africa will provide all logistics including guides, support boat, kayaking and camp equipment, and of course delicious meals and cold drinks. Participants provide a love of the outdoors and a willingness to achieve something special.
Thanksgiving on Mumbo Island on November 22
It is not easy to source a turkey in Malawi, but our dedicated chefs on Mumbo Island managed their first ever Thanksgiving roast turkey and pumpkin pie on November 22 for our two families of American guests. This was quite a feat for guys who'd never even seen a turkey, let alone roasted one in a gas oven, in a reed kitchen, on an island without electricity in the middle of a lake in the middle of Africa! While the meal as a whole was a great success, sadly, the turkey was apparently "too dry". Ah well, better luck next time!
