After our stay at Lake Victoria, we head south to a slightly smaller, but perhaps more interesting lake: Lake Malawi. Here, we will spend the day at Lake Malawi National Park. We first see the great baobab tree. This tree is supposedly 800 years old and was a popular hangout for David Livingstone.
In the afternoon, we head out into the water. This lake holds more species than any lake on earth. It too is famous for its cychlids. It is believed that these fish, like those in Lake Victoria originated and diverged from a few, if not one, species. Malawi also has a huge population of various snails.
Tomorrow we will head out toward the wonderful Victoria Falls.
