Kande Beach – Chipata, Zambia
We say goodbye to the beautiful Lake Malawi and head for Lilongwe (the capital) to grab some supplies for our journey to Zambia. Take this opportunity to spend your remaining currency before crossing the Zambian border. Formally named Fort Jameson, Chipata has a population of about 98,416 and is the capital of the Eastern Province of Zambia. This unique town offers colourful fruit and vegetable markets and an unexpected amount of ornate temples due to it’s large Indian community. If we have time we will hopefully be able to make a stop in Chipata before arriving at our campsite which is situated a short distance from the centre of town.
