Flight 27) Mbala – Blantyre

After my last flight over the longest lake in the world, my next leg took me to another expansive lake. This time it was Lake Malawi.

Following a heading of 120 or south east over land I eventually spotted more lakes. It seems crazy that we are still covering the same land mass which was endless desert earlier in to the tour and now we are covering some of the biggest lakes in the world.

I flew the length of Lake Malawi before reaching some rather disrupted terrain. A Scattering of mountains in a triangular formation marked the city of Blantyre. The reason for this overly Scottish sounding name is because it was named by the original founder, Dr Livingston. (I Presume.)

Blantyre looked like a lovely place. I have included a video of a tour of a local school. Seems like a nice enough place to raise a family although it would be a long way off anything we are used to back in the UK.
