Malawi provides an Africa safari or holiday with a difference and one of the places to enjoy that experience ,is along the shores on Lake Malawi.
Lake Malawi is one of the most beautiful lakes in the world because of its beautiful beaches and islands.It is full of marine life and because of it fresh waters.There are more than 1000 species of cichlids including famous and the best tilapia “Chambo” .
Lake Malawi is the third largest in Africa and the eighth largest lake in the world.It is also the second deepest lake in Africa, although its placid northern shore gives no hint of its depth.
Because of its beautiful beaches and waters there are wide range of activities like snorkeling, diving, boat riding, sailing, water skiing, camping, trips to the islands located along the lake, Beach football and other water activities.
Accommodation is provided along the beautiful lake providing well-equipped rooms including family rooms, bars and lounges and most of all stunning views towards the lake’s islands to see beautiful the sun rise and sun set.
And one of these beautiful places is none other than cape maclear.
Cape Maclear was named by David and Charles Livingstone, who visited it in 1861 and named it after Sir Thomas Maclear, then Astronomer Royal at the Cape of Good Hope. A mission was established there in 1875, which flourished initially and drew migrants from the surrounds thanks to the education and medical services on offer.
Today Cape Maclear is one of the most beautiful and popular locations in Malawi – a stunning beach on the turquoise shores of the lake, encircled by granite boulders and woodland that hums with the heat of the sun. Many activities are available: you can kayak out to one of the nearby islands, dive with otters, or just laze around on the beach.
You’ll be able to find very comfortable, if not luxurious accommodation around here fairly easily.
