Lake Malawi National Park is located at the southern end of Lake Malawi. It is the only national park in Malawi that was created to protect fish and aquatic habitats. Lake Malawi National Park does include a fair amount of land, including several small islands of which two are seen in this image here, and is home to other animals such as baboons. A baobab tree over 800 years old, said to be a favourite of Dr. David Livingstone as a place where he could give sermons and speak with other missionaries can be found. The graves of five early missionaries are also found in the park. The many endemic cichlid fish species make it a prime destination for those interested in evolution. There are good resources here for those wishing to go snorkling, diving and simply exploring this corner of Malawi. Not far away near Salima, you can find the David Stuart fish farm, that exports cichlids around the world for the home aquarium fish keeping enthuiasts. The sailing craft seen in this image is the Mufusa owned and operated by Darnforth Yaughting – Expeditions to many parts of the lake can be organized, such as the better know Likoma Island.
