Between Joseph Kamanje, manager at Kayak Africa, and staff of the Lake Malawi National Parks, two successful visits by students at Cape Maclear Primary School were arranged this month. The top three pupils in each class of the school were given the trip as a reward for all their hard work. They were taken to Domwe by boat, treated to a good lunch and given a rousing talk on conservation and the work of National Parks and Kayak Africa to conserve the flora and fauna of the Lake Malawi National Park. We hope that these visits will help to foster an appreciation and understanding of the importance of these vulnerable areas.
