We have decided to add car transfers to our list of services on this website and I hope that this post helps to explain why it may be useful for some.
Make your journey happier with our discounted transfers
This has come about after various conversations with lodge owners and also visitors. A number of people have expressed the view that it has been quite difficult to find out in advance about getting from a to b within Malawi. Of course many people have contacts or organisations who assist them but others wish to make their own plans.
I was visiting Senga Bay last week and where I was staying there a visitor was telling me that he was flying out of the country the next day. Therefore he had arranged transport by car from Senga Bay to Lilongwe airport. His alternative would be to get a minibus from Senga Bay to Salima and then change there for another minibus to Lilongwe. Once in Lilongwe he would again have to change for the airport.
The next morning I got up early as the owner of the establishment had asked me to take a sunrise photo from the beach to help to promote his business. Malawi is a morning country so it is not at all strange to get up before the sun. This part of Senga Bay was a perfect place on the beach to watch the fishing boats return from their night on the lake. Now, the guy who was on his way out of the country was also awake and he told me that the arrangement he had been carefully negotiating had, at the last minute, fallen through.
