"Final destination... and a starting point, too!" Metangula by lichinga

Metangula Travel Guide: 2 reviews and 9 photos

While Lichinga is 1,300 metres high, experiencing a cold climate, Metangula lies on the lake shores at 200 metres altitude, though only 70 km away. Opposite Lichinga, on the other side of the Great Rift Valley, where the lake lies, one could see Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. The climate of the lake shores is very hot, giving way to completely different crops and ecological system: in the picture you might notice a baobab, which are very common along the lake.
