The next three days we spent at the shores of Lake Malawi playing volleyball, eating roasted pig and snorkeling. The latter was particularly impressive, since the lake is the source of most of our known aquarium fish and there were always lots of small, colorful fish around. A few jumps off the rocks at the water’s edge concluded this amazing adventure.
Unfortunately our quite short stay in Malawi as well as pass through of Zambia gave us little time to explore the countries. Thanks to the open truck we were at least able to feel a bit of the atmosphere of the country before crossing over the Kariba Dam into Zimbabwe.
There it went straight onto a houseboat for the next three great days filled with fishing, water safaris and the long prepared bad-taste-party. With this all of us had to dress a fellow traveler as “fancy” as possible, for example with skin-tight leggings, leopard skirt and feather boa. The results were often screamingly funny, and the party, thanks to a lot of fruit punch, a blast.
A little less recovered than hoped, we left the boat two days later and boarded our “beloved” truck, which would carry us to many more adventures in Zimbabwe. But more about this later …
