Chipata – Kande Beach, Malawi
We cross the border into Malawi today, so be sure to once again have your visa ready. We spend four evenings unwinding on the shores of ‘the Lake of Stars’. Beach strolls, swimming in the sparkling water and snorkelling amongst exotic fish are all part of your incredible stay here. Pay a visit to a range of lakeside camps as we drive northward along Lake Malawi’s shores.
The Lake is the primary attraction of Malawi, and is the third biggest lake in the continent and is around 500 kilometres in length. The lake houses more fish types than any other lake in the world, boasting over 600 different species. The biggest fish family is the Chichlids, which are sent all around the world to pet shops and such. The Lake is renowned for its fantastic snorkelling and diving, and it is depended on by the locals for their survival – they use mokoros (dugout canoes) to fish from and throw out long nets. There is a wide variety of diverse ethnic groups here, all speaking their own language.
