Lake of the Stars

Lake Malawi has several names and nicknames. Because it is 365 miles long it is called the year long lake. It was named by the famous explorer Dr. David Livingstone Lake Nyasa (which is what Tanzanians call it). He also called it The Lake of Stars. He gave it that name because of the lights […]


Mountain Biking Anyone?

I first met my ground partner Steve when he and his wife were the managers of Mahale Greystoke. We bonded over a love of kayaking and as I have previously described Steve and I were the first to kayak in an area off the coast of Tanzania. It is how Infinite Safari Adventures was born. […]
