Lake Malawi Safari '03'   


My journey starts this year with a 22 hour boat ride from Kambiri Point to Nkhata Bay. Lars Andersson and I were the only two visitors on this leg of the trip, the others would catch up the next day.

Once at Nkhata Bay we quickly donned our scuba gear and dove just outside the harbor on the southern side. There were plenty of fish to see and the visibility was very good.

The next morning we were off to Chiszumulu Island and on the way we stopped at Taiwan Reef for a dive. Taiwan Reef is most famous for Protomelas fenestratus, but has more to offer than just this one fish!
