Africa’s Friendliest Country. Zambia Expedition 2015. Part-6.

sun Lake Malawi


“Lake Malawi is an astonishing place of exquisite beauty.”

In this episode Andrew and Kate enter Malawi for the first time, and head for the luxury island lodge called Blue Zebra Lodge. The easy drive turns into a mad rush as they discover how challenging it is to make good time on Malawi’s busy roads. After settling in at the lodge, and snorkelling for rare fish in the clear water, they head north to the more rural and less touristy Ngala Bay. Here they enjoy an outstanding opportunity to photograph the local fishermen in the company of some very friendly children. To conclude they visit some markets to by curious, but find the people a little hostile.

This is part-6 of an expedition undertaken to find out if Zambia is indeed what it claims – ‘Africa’s Friendliest Country‘. And also to find out if, with minimal equipment and a stock four-wheel drive pickup, an exciting and ambitious African bush safari can be completed safely and in comfort.
