The view of Domwe Island from Cape Maclear is breathtaking. We kayaked across Lake Malawi to a private secluded campsite on Domwe. Our backpacks were carried for us by Baby Ella.
We had a lovely dinner and then moved down to the beach for a campfire. This is when Vicki broke at the Amarula, a South African liqueur made from the fruit of the Marula Tree, also known as the Elephant tree. I guess they like the silky sweet fruit also. One of the guides had told us that the fruit of the Marula tree would get the baboons and elephants drunk. It sure did a number on us! By the end of the evening it was affectionately known as “Lalulalula”.

Harry, our sunset tour guide who sang "Welcome to Malawi" and danced on the bow.
Villagers bathe and do their dishes and laundry in the lake.
Freshwater in Africa is frequent source of GI infections such as cholera and dysentery. Lake Malawi harbors schistosomiasis, so we all took Praziquantel after swimming.
