My manager Lingson is available though at any time where you'd need help or advice. Lingson is the most supportive person you could imagine. The NeighborhoodNdilindi Moyo is located in the centre of the tourist part of Cape MacLear. During day and at night it is really quiet, although you might hear the local drums sometimes. It will give you the real African "feel". Getting AroundA secured car park is available at a distance of 50 meters. Cape MacLear can easily be reached by private car. From Monkey Bay local transport is scarce, but there is Always the possibility to rent a motorbike + driver. Other Things to NoteBecause of the numerous black-outs recently in Malawi, a emergency power back-up through batteries has been installed in the cottage. During the time when there is electricity, the batteries are being loaded. This will guarantee guests with electricity for hot water, lights, fan's, television, WIFI, water cooker for 24/7. Limited cooking facilities are available (microwave & from January 2017 on a 2 plate induction cooker) during blackouts. The electrical stove and oven though take too much capacity for the batteries to be used during a black-out.

Walking around the nearby local vibrant markets is a sure fun way to pick up bargains and enjoy a few hours. There are resident fish eagles nesting in the hardwoods on the property, beautiful to observe as they swoop down for fish or chase each other across the sky. Getting Aroundeven if you have a car, the bicycle taxis are a great way of seeing the sights slowly.

The NeighborhoodLocated in the South-western part of Lake Malawi, Lake Malawi National Park is the smallest of Malawi’s National Parks but perhaps the most ecologically important. Established in 1980, the park was inscribed to the UNESCO World Heritage Site List in 1984 in recognition of the outstanding universal values that it possesses. The park and the larger Cape Maclear area form a key tourism destination. The conservation and management of the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) contributes greatly for the site made the site to be a sustainable tourism destination. The key OUV include Mbuna fish species and outstanding scenic beautiful beaches, coupled with crystal clear waters. The area is of exceptional natural beauty with diversity of fish species, over 500 cichlids species which are endemic to Lake Malawi. The area has a rich historical back ground which includes the coming of early Scottish missionaries in honour of a great explorer by the name of Dr. David Livingstone. Accessibility to the area is throughout the year by use of road network from the major cities and other districts. This World Heritage destination is a combination of natural ecosystem and enclave village with high human population. The community within area of destination relies on fishing for their livelihood. However, tourism also plays a significant role in the community as can be seen by the increasing number of lodges and accommodation within the village. There are number of stakeholders involved in tourism operations. Getting AroundFrom the airport you can get a private taxi or public transport to Cape Maclear. A taxi will cost around the 100 US dollars and it is a four hours’ drive. There is a possibility to travel with public transport (extensive bus/minibus), that will take 4-8 hours. The bus drivers always wait until the whole bus is full to depart. A minibus to Monkey Bay will cost around 6 US dollars. From Monkey Bay you will need a motorbike to Cape Maclear, that will cost around 2 US dollars. It is also possible to reach Monkey Bay by boat (Ilala). From where the boat docks, you can take a motorbike. Other Things to NoteIt is important to come with an open-mind; you will soon find that the minor discomforts are far out-weighed by the benefits of this unique experience. The home stay is a two-way cultural exchange. Feel free to bring photos of your own to share; family members, your house, neighbourhood, scenery. They will more than likely be curious to see where you are from and how you live. Arrive as a guest but to leave as a friend. You pay the family directly in cash (twenty thousand Malawian Kwacha)
