On a horse for the first time and what a treat! I got to take lovely horse Pavarotti swimming in Lake Malawi. So cool, Pavarotti was treading water and I had to hold his manes to prevent myself from falling off. Kande Horse offer these rides for first-timers like me, and more experienced riders too.
Malawi lies in sub-Saharan Africa, nestled between Zambia and Mozambique. It's one of the poorest countries in the world. But! It is safe. And with safari parks, mountain treks, tea estates and a lake of fresh water which covers one-third of the country, Malawi has plenty to offer when you want to venture off the beaten track.
