Leaving Liwonde National Park and the hippos behind, we begin our drive to Cape Maclear, on Lake Malawi. We like to see all the people going about every day life in Malawi.
Closer to Cape Maclear we stopped at this National Monument. This is Mwala Wa Mphini.
This rock, named “Rock of Tribal Face Scars” is covered with a criss-cross pattern of deep etchings that looks to be of human origin.
However, according to our guide and the Brandt guidebook, the incisions are a natural geological phenomenon, created by the uneven weathering of an exposed crystalline rock. Isn’t this amazing? What a great rock. Now, 4 kilometers down the road, we have arrived at the resort of Cape Maclear.
Remember those narrow dugout canoes we saw at Makuzi Beach? Well, here are more of the dugouts in Lake Malawi.
I think these canoes are wonderful, and so picturesque. We are camping tonight, but Fat Monkeys Lodge is connected to our campgrounds.
After a long trip, we wanted a light snack and a Diet Coke. The Fat Monkeys Bar and Grill was our choice.
However, it was difficult for this Colorado Traveling Duck to leave the lounge chair, but the thought of a cold beverage persuaded me to enter this establishment.
Look at the great carvings on the edge of this wooden bar. Much of the woodwork in this bar had fabulous carvings. I really admire this wood. After our refreshment, we checked out our new beach.
We like a resort in a town. We enjoy seeing the local people as they live here. This shows the people, the lake and the nearby mountain.
Mom and I love beaches and mountains together. Here is more of Cape Maclear on Lake Malawi.
Perhaps another short rest would be good.
Of course, shopping is always interesting.
Maybe it is time to leave the beach for a short time.
As you can see, Cape Maclear is a very busy location for many people and a very relaxing location for tourists. The people here were very friendly. This is one reason Malawi is often referred to as the Warm Heart of Africa.
Mom and I, Zeb the Duck, believe this boat. Malawi and the people certainly have shown us a very warm and welcoming heart. Next time we will show you more of what we did at Cape Maclear, on Lake Malawi.
