Malawi's famous lake boasts more species of fish than any other
body of freshwater in the world. More than 600 have been discovered
so far, and many of these are the small, brilliantly coloured
cichlids favoured by aquariums worldwide, which, combined with the
lack of currents, makes for great snorkelling and diving.
Other activities that Original Travel can arrange for adults and
children include mountain biking, canoeing on the lake, guided
walks and bird-watching.
Away from the popular budget accommodation area of the Southern
Lake Shore, we particularly recommend Likoma Island. Come here to
relax, switch off, and to enjoy the natural beauty and peaceful
atmosphere of this remote island and its excellent eco-hotel Kaya
