One of the most well-known overland stops in Africa is the campsite at Malawi’s Kande Beach. It’s only 20km to the south of Chinteche on the northern lakeshore in Malawi.
In 1995, overland expedition leader Dave Barton from England used this area for bush camping while he was running ‘Trans Africa’ overland tours. After the Kande villagers accepted him, he got together with the chief and came up with the idea to start this campsite by employing the locals and in doing so, uplift the community.
Thanks to Dave’s efforts, Kande Beach is a perfect example of how overlanding can benefit communities at grass root level.
