This year, Simon and Cara will attempt to swim across Lake Malawi nicknamed by David Livingstone as the "Lake of Stars." This name came about due to lights from the lanterns of the fishermen in Malawi on their boats, that resemble, from a distance, stars in the sky .
This great lake is the 9th largest in the world and the third largest and second deepest lake in Africa.
We will attempt to swim the distance between Mirango & Senga, roughly 30km, lets see how we go....
Thank you for supporting us and the "young stars" that we hope to make a small difference for through this event.
Asante Sana, Zikomo, Obrigado
(Thank you in language of the counties that meet at the shores of this great lake).
