What more can be said about this perfect place? Everything is taken care of even before you can start thinking about it, perfectly equipped for any watersports, perfectly organised from sunrise to well after Sunset (especially the Sunset cruise on the catamaran), the perfect "seaman's fare" poached egg, the succulent prime beef, the subtly scented variations on the thai coconut-curry theme, the chutneys and deserts. So we must talk about the heart, the passion, the total commitment of the entire team into making everyone, Young, old and anywhere in between feel at home, all the time. Diving in Lake Malawi can be just gazing at colourful fish but with the expert explanations from Howard it becomes a study in animal behaviour, understanding who is doing what to whom and why. An early morning low number of species birdwalk turns into a story-telling academy, every activity in fact turns into a story-telling academy. A wonderful place with formidable people running it. The kids felt like Kings.
