Nkhata bay

// Nikon D7200 |34.30428 : -11.61205 | alt. 516m

Two days drive, a night in the bush high up in a forest (and some fresh air for the first time since a while), just enough to remind us how we miss bush camping. As much as I enjoy parties by the beach…….. I didn’t come for this, and I miss our little fire every night.
Anyway, it was not yet time to live like a bushman. After a few lovely days with Ralph in Cape Maclear, we decided to meet up in Nkhata bay for another round !
The place to stay is Mayoka village, lovely paradise by the lake, properly set for foreigners, but don’t expect to meet locals here since they are not allowed inside !
Food is excellent, free kayaks, cold carlsberg, and a perfect place to hang out. They also have a small floating platform to enjoy sunset, which we did, with a few beers. It didn’t take long for the others to join us 🙂
Sadly, Eiji had stomach issues and he had to stay in his car for a few days…..

A lot of good fun, but for our last night, we wanted something more traditional, so we paid a visit to the butterfly space next door, where locals are gathering for a few drinks and to play pool. We obviously challenged the locals, and we properly lost, with a big smile (yup too many carlsbergs fucks up your angles) and a lot of fun. Definitely a good moment there !

On the first day here, I met Alex, an artist selling paintings of Malawi, and since he said he could make custom orders, I asked for one ! I was a bit suspicious, not expecting this guy to even return, but he did ! And he did this beautiful painting of mister Fox on the beach of lake Malawi. 🙂 Haters gonna hate, but I love it.

Cape Maclear

  // Nikon D7200 |-14.031 : 34.83053 | alt. 494 m First impression is not always the best, and can be misleading. This is what happened when we arrived in Cape Maclear. We made it 2 hours before sunset, crossing the back of the village, which looks like a slum… and then, once on the beach,…

Luangwa national park

  // Nikon D7200 |-13.18397 : 31.72271 | alt. 543m Finally, we left Lusaka. En route to Luangwa national park, we stopped in Katete, but it’s not an easy job to find a place to sleep in Zambia ! There is people or fences everywhere !!! And I had enough troubles with the locals while…

Victoria falls

  // Nikon D7200 |-17.9222 : 25.82591 | alt. 947m Long stretch of road to reach Victoria falls, maaaaaany police check points, but so far, after dozens of them, no one asked for money or gave us problems. Just a routine check for driving license, and that’s it. Now, this place was the only one…

  // Nikon D7200 |-19.7885 : 32.99436 | alt. 1333m We only had to drive 400kms today, but somehow, we still didn’t manage to cover that distance during the day. Eiji and Chizu visited the ruins in the morning, and we then left around noon. Instead of taking the fastest route, we took a detour on…

Okavango delta

  // Nikon D7200 | secret location ! | alt. 930m Border crossing from Namibia to Botswana was better than expected. Always easy on the Namibian side, always a mess on the Botswanian side….. but since we already have a 90days visa, they cannot prevent us from getting inside 🙂 Just after crossing the border,…
