From the Editor Well Ho Ho Ho Dear Readers, This issue was fun, fun, fun, working in the dark but it does make life interesting. Lets see what we have this issue. Our knowledgeable Harrison Simfukwe brings us a piece on Malawian Heritage and background on St. Peter`s Anglican Cathedral (Likoma Island), we take a brief look into the history of Central Africana Galleries. Susan Waldron brings us a topic which can never lose ones interest, Malaria: Prevention is better than cure!

Our Zambian piece, behind the background of a tour operator is brought to us by Tim van de Lynder (Kiboko) & a recent tourist to Malawi, Sean Fielding was so fascinated by civets on his visit to Domwe Island, he wrote us a piece! Then back to the beginning with a heritage piece from Daisy Belford (FCC) with Looking into Malawi’s Arts & Culture. Big thanks to all of the contributors and advertisers for still believing in The Eye through dark times (chuckle chuckle).

Likoma, means beautiful, from “Silikoma” or “Sweet Land”. The people of Likoma are proud of their land and church as expressed by group village head Chalunda: “The Cathedral gives us a reason to say civilisation started in Likoma. When the first missionaries arrived on the island in 1881, the island had a site called Chipsera, a place where our ancestors used to burn villagers suspected of witchcraft and sexual immorality. The place of burning blood and smells of charred bodies is now home to St Peter’s Cathedral, a center of nearly all developmental activities in Likoma.”

Business 1.0 Introduction The Anglican Church in Malawi born out of the Universities Mission to Central Africa (UMCA) which came to Malawi on the appeal made by Dr. David Livingstone based on the inhumane acts afflicted upon the people of the land by the Swahili Arabs and some local chiefs. He saw people being subjected to torture and death, made to walk long distances to the east coast markets of either Kilwa or Zanzibar on empty stomachs. These conditions among many others displeased Dr. Livingstone, as such he proposed to bring the gospel of God and introduce commercial trade as opposed to trade in humans. Therefore, in 1857 he was given a platform in the Senate House where he spoke to the Universities of Oxford, Durham and Dublin, declaring he had found there, in the Zambezi River Valley east of Victoria Falls, a land of immense opportunity. A land that would flow with milk and honey if only Britain would see it fit to develop its resources. His plea, of course, was not merely economic but spiritual to. His speech inspired some students from the three universities to volunteer to bring the gospel to Malawi. Led by Bishop Mackenzie, later joined by Livingstone himself, the UMCA missionaries arrived in Malawi in 1861 and established the first station at Mitsidi Village, Magomero in Chiradzulu District, at a spot lying on a slave trade route. Upon their establishment, missionaries faced great challenges comprising tribal wars amongst the chiefs, acts of slavery and diseases particularly malaria. In no time, the church lost some prominent members including Bishop Mackenzie. Terrified by such conditions, Bishop Tozer, the successor, moved the mission to Zanzibar in 1864. In Zanzibar, the Christ Church Anglican Cathedral was built. Today, the Cathedral stands in Stone Town as a symbol of remembrance to men, women and children taken from the interior of Africa and sold into slavery.

2.0 The re-establishment of Anglican Church in Malawi The British Government, however, disagreed with the idea of taking the mission to Zanzibar, hence in 1885 the Anglican Church returned to Malawi and Likoma Island was chosen and a new headquarters was established. Initially, there was the Anglican Diocese of Nyasa whose name automatically changed to Diocese of Malawi when Malawi became independent in 1964. For some time, the mission conducted its activities into the mainland from Likoma. Some years later, the Diocese of Malawi was split into two, the Diocese of Southern Malawi in the south and the Diocese of Lake Malawi in the north. Later, from the Diocese of Southern Malawi, the Diocese of Upper Shire was established. The Diocese of Lake Malawi remained the only vast diocese in the country. Due to its vastness, issues of administration and management emerged. For instance, it was difficult to reach out to every corner of the region to spread the gospel. Besides, the Diocese had

a big shortage of priests, thereby giving great responsibility to individual priests to look after a good number of parishes. Further to that, Likoma to date remains isolated and the challenge of transport to and from Likoma is a major challenge. Such circumstances influenced the split of the Diocese of Lake Malawi in 1995. A new Diocese, the Diocese of Northern Malawi was established. St. Peter’s Cathedral remains the seat of Bishop of the headquarters Diocese of Northern Malawithe with its diocesan is in Mzuzu.

es. It’s a wonder of architecture hardly comparable with the local architecture in Malawi. The Cathedral is said to be equal in size with the Winchester Cathedral, in Hampshire, England. This church of England is one of the largest cathedrals with the longest nave and greatest overall length of any gothic cathedral in Europe. It stands elegantly in its Gothic architecture reminiscent of all cathedrals where this architectural style is manifested. The Gothic style evolved from the Romanesque Architecture and succeeded by Renaissance Architecture and thrived in Europe between the 1200 and 1500 AD. The fundamentals of the Gothic architecture are the pointed arches used for windows, doors and decorative elements like porches, dormers, or roof gables, the ribbed

The Cathedral is located on a fine land measuring 17,600 square feet overlooking a well-protected bay. It consists of a long nave, with western baptistery and towers, shallow transepts and cloister, apsidal choir with aisles, ambulatory and vestries and an eastern Lady Chapel. The Church is probably one of the biggest buildings in Central Africa. St Peters Cathedral’s recognizable gothic architectural features among others include the stained glass panels and point arch-

vault and the flying buttress. Other identifiable features comprise the steeply pitched roofs and front facing gables with delicate wooden trim. 3.2 The Construction of St Peter’s Cathedral St Peter’s Cathedral was designed by G. Frank George, an English architect. In 1903 the cornerstone for Church was laid by Gerard Trower, an Anglican Bishop from Yorkshire, England. The building materials such as bricks, timber, cement and granite were sourced locally. Except

for granite all other construction materials were carried over from the mainland. However, soil from Jerusalem was placed under the high altar. The construction lasted over six years and was finally concluded in 1911. The Cathedral was

St. Peter’s Cathedral is dedicated to Saint Peter, whose statue faces the lake, holding the keys in his hands with a big lock lying closed at his feet. 4.0 The great achievements by the Anglican Church in Malawi 4.1. Anglicans and the abolition of slavery in Malawi From 1500 AD acts of slave trade and slavery were rampart on the African Continent. Through the influence of Dr. David Livingstone, missionaries came to spread the gospel and business men came to open commercial trade. These missionaries and business gurus became pioneers in the fight against slave trade. The UMCA freed slaves at Magomero and the missionary station itself became a refugee camp for freed slaves. At Likoma, the mission found

people who run away from becoming captives to slave trade and gave them comfort and hope of humanity through the gospel. Therefore, the Anglican church contributed to the end of slave trade and slavery in Malawi. 4.2. The Anglican Evangelism in Malawi Prior to Christianity, Malawians worshiped nature and ancestral spirits. People believed God manifested Himself in big rivers, thick forests, on mountains, caves, in huge trees, pools and many other features, as witnessed by numerous nature and ancestral shrines dotted across the country. In this religion system, people regarded such spirits as mediators to the Almighty God. Christianity introduced brought positive elements. For example, the spiritual and social values of Christian Communities can today be witnessed both in rural and urban areas especially at times of sickness, death, disasters, as well as during self-help community development projects. The traditional family spirit of Malawians has been enhanced and broadened to be more inclusive by the Gospel value of community neighborliness. 4.3. The political mileage in Malawi The Anglican Church issued a Pastoral Letter in 1992. This Letter contributed to the political change for democracy whose fruits are cherished by the Malawi folk today. This event enhanced responsible participation of Malawians in the national social development issues. 4.4. Education The Church has and continues to register tremendous achievements in enhancing education in Malawi. For example, the Diocese of Northern Malawi alone has 15 primary schools, 3 secondary schools, 1 convent and 1 theologi-

Business cal college. These schools have produced and continue producing evangelists, teachers and doctors who have contributed and continue to contribute to the national development agendas. These Church schools will be remembered for satisfactory producing responsible citizens with well-built up behaviours and knowledge that are useful to society. St Peter’s Cathedral is regarded the mother of teaching and learning institutions on the island and beyond. 4.5. Heath facilities Health care and the establishment of hospitals are services the Anglican Church has contributed to the nation. For example, St Peters Hospital on Likoma Island, sees between 100 and 200 patients from Likoma, but also admits referrals from Chizumulu Health Centre.

5.2. Sports Likoma offers kitespot, scuba diving, sail rental, wakeboarding, snorkelling, kayaking and stand up paddleboarding. 6.0. Movements to and from Likoma Despite private passer engine boats and vessels sailing between Likoma and mainland, the only safe and reliable mode of transport to and from Likoma is by the MV Ilala. The monumental steamer boat circumnavigates Lake Malawi, stopping over at all the main settlements on the coast and the islands.

church doctrines. Many traditions still take place there. Likoma is a fine destination for tourism. On the itinerary, St Peter’s Cathedral and the museum feature prominently. Tours are organized for those wishing to visit St Peter’s Cathedral, the museum and all other structures affiliated to it. Tourists are also entertained to traditional dances i.e. Malipenga by men and Chioda by women.

Likoma Island remains the darling of the world. It is of great historical significance as the headquarters of the Universities Mission to Central Africa. It is home to the famous gothic CathedralSt Peters, one of the earliest church buildings in Malawi. It attracts visitors from the world over for religious reasons or simply to marvel at the place. A word of thanks to missionaries and other prayers who have made the story of the Anglican Church, and St Peter’s Cathedral in particular, a big name in the country and beyond.

Central Africana’s shops and galleries are unique in Malawi. They are like a distillation of everyone’s happiest memories of the warm heart of Africa. Starting with pre-colonial times, Gamitto then David Livingstone in the nineteenth century, they come right up to modern days. Absolutely every interest and pastime is covered in books, well backed-up with maps, paintings by local artists, posters and an incredible profusion of maybe 100 different postcards. There are economic and political commentaries crediting and more often blaming every politician and president for our development (or our lack of it!). The colonial administrations get slammed with the Federation singled out for odium. National founder and first President Kamuzu Banda gets much more credit now than he did after 1994’s transition to democracy and too many books seem to have titles like ‘The Lost Years’, with much discussion on which years have been actually lost!

Frank Johnston, Central Africana owner and resident of Malawi for 50 years pointed out to me what he described as the best commentary on Malawi’s recent history. It was Malawi, A Place Apart written by Asbjen Eidhammer who had been Norway‘s Ambas-

32

sador to Malawi not once but twice. Frank told me it was commendably objective and although only launched in July, was already selling extremely well by Malawi standards. Where he added, with a mere hint of bitterness, readership in

terms of books per household had reached an African low! They also have one of the best collections, anywhere in the world, of older books on Malawi. Among the oldest of these, I looked at a first edition of one of the only two books penned by David Livingstone. It had appeared in 1865 when he had misled himself that his less enterprising and frankly unpopular brother, Charles, had helped him write it! Fascinating, it followed his best-selling Missionary Travels and Researches in South (ern) Africa and is called Expedition to the Zambesi and the Discovery of Lakes Shirwa (Chilwa) and Nyassa. That’s my Lake Malawi he had written about ‘discovering’! I am sure the worthy doctor had no interest in ‘tourism’ or of going to Africa to see animals or enjoy a better climate. I wondered what exactly he would have thought of me… As a complete hedonist lazing by the Lake, I suppose. Go there. If you’re in Malawi don’t miss these galleries. They are indeed Malawi’s urban tourist attractions.

If there was a tablet you could take, that would prevent you from getting a deadly disease that kills almost half a million people per year, with more than 90% of those deaths in sub-Saharan Africa, would you take it? What if that same tablet also prevented you from getting schistosomiasis (bilharzia) so that you could swim in Lake Malawi without fear of those annoying parasites that crawl through your skin and into your bloodstream? Then would you take it? The medicine I’m referring to is mefloquine (Lariam) and the deadly disease is, of course, malaria. There are also other medications used to prevent malaria (doxycycline and malarone) but only mefloquine appears to have the added bonus of preventing schistosomiasis. For most Malawians, avoiding malaria is an ongoing battle, fought with mosquito nets, poorly resourced hospitals and little else. Medications

48

to prevent malaria are too expensive for routine use in the whole population. Instead malaria prevention focuses on use of insecticide treated bed nets, indoor spraying with insecticides and prompt testing and treatment of suspected cases of malaria. There are also programmes to give malaria prevention drugs intermittently to pregnant women and children under the age of 5, who are at very high risk of severe malaria, but not everyone who needs the medication gets it. For the lucky few, travellers, expats and wealthy residents, tablets to prevent malaria are affordable. But many choose NOT to take them, or to take them only sporadically. There are many reasons for this. Here are some of the reasons I’ve heard: -I don’t think it’s safe to take medicine for such a long time. -The medication is too expensive. -I tried it but it made me feel awful. -My brother, sister, husband, wife, father, aunty etc, don’t take it and they haven’t had malaria.


Business -It’s dry season so I don’t need to take it. -I’m very careful about not being bitten by mosquitoes so I don’t need to take it. -I’ve lived in Malawi for many years and never had malaria so I think I must be immune. The reality is that malaria is a serious and frequently deadly disease and non-immune travellers, expats and residents remain at high risk of infection for the entire time they are living in Malawi. Malaria is present YEAR-ROUND in all of Malawi, even in the cities. With changing weather patterns, we are likely to see even more malaria in the dry season. Malaria prophylaxis (medication to prevent malaria) is safe and highly effective. Mefloquine is taken only once a week and if it can also prevent schistosomiasis you can enjoy your time at the lake with only a hangover to worry about! Other important measures to prevent malaria include sleeping under an insecticide treated bed net, staying in a house with mosquito screens on the windows and doors and wearing long sleeved light coloured clothing and applying personal insect repellent when outdoors in the evening. Malaria vaccine trials are commencing soon but it will be many years before a vaccine is generally available. So just how bad is malaria? In 2015 there were 212 million (yes MILLION) recorded cases of

1

malaria worldwide and 90% of these were in our region of Africa. For those with no immunity to malaria it is usually a severe illness with a sudden onset. It causes high fever, shaking chills (called rigors), headache, muscle aches, bone and joint pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea and tummy pain. This can last for 4 or 5 days even with treatment. But possibly even worse than the original debilitating illness is the prolonged recovery. The malaria parasite destroys the red blood cells leaving the sufferer anaemic, weak and tired for weeks or even months. Maybe you can drag yourself back to work but you won’t want to go out with friends or go for a jog! Prompt testing and treatment of malaria is also vital. The most severe form of malaria, which causes cerebral malaria (Plasmodium falciparum) progresses rapidly and can be fatal within 24 hours without treatment. In summary, resist the temptation to become blasé about malaria. Malaria is common and deadly. Malaria is present all year round in all of Malawi. If you are lucky enough to have access to preventive medication (doxycycline, mefloquine or malarone) please consider or reconsider taking it. In medical school I was taught, ‘fever in a malarial area is malaria until proven otherwise’. So, if you or a family member develop a fever, get a malaria test promptly. Rapid detection and treatment saves lives. It could save yours.

Malawi and Zambia are famous for their beautiful nature, authentic culture and wildlife. Every year thousands of visitors are arriving at our airports full of excitement, waiting to fulfil a lifelong dream. A good number of guests combine their safari adventures in Malawi with a Zambian flavour in South Luangwa National Park. This authentic park is, besides being an excellent holiday destination, also the ideal get-away for many expats in Malawi. This article gives an inside view of all logistics involved to organise a safari and gives a picture for all who would love to see the beauty the Luangwa Valley has to offer. Working for one of Malawi’s biggest tour operators, it all starts with the challenge of getting tourists to Malawi. Malawi and Zambia are surrounded by safari giants like Tanzania, Kenya

80

and South Africa. Cooperating with different safari companies, the Malawian and Zambian Tourism Boards and other institutions is very important to get in touch with potential visitors. Once in touch with the potential guest it’s necessary to convince them to choose Malawi as their holiday destination. Despite the in many’s opinion high visa cost and the long travel, tourists are keen to have a taste of ‘rural Africa’. The huge diversity between all game parks on offer, South Luangwa, Majete and Liwonde to name a few, the parks being within reasonable travel distance of each other, all make our region ideal for a diverse safari experience for beginning and advanced wildlife lovers. Specific animals such as Thornicraft Giraffe, Cookson Wildebeast and the huge population of leopards and lions and not to forget the rhinos in Majete and Liwonde topped up with the newly introduced cheetahs

Accommodation

Cont from prev page. are usually the last push for tourists to book their air ticket to the ‘Warm Heart of Africa’. The preparation of the safari starts immediately when a tourist makes an (online) booking. Our logistics department starts scheduling a driver and vehicle (mostly depending on the type of guest). The period between the booking and departure is used to get necessary licences, permits and make payments. The number of different permits which are needed to get a guest on a safari in South Luangwa may surprise you. The vehicle gets a full service by our professional mechanics before the safari departs. To give the tourists a real safari feeling we mostly drive Land Rover Defenders, for bigger groups we are also able to provide comfortable Mercedes Sprinter buses. On the day of departure we leave Lilongwe at 8:00 in the morning and after a twohour drive to Mchinji we cross the border.

Business Most of the time, this is the first exciting part of the journey to Mfuwe for our guests. First of all, to see if all visa applications are accepted, secondly, they can add an extra country to their list of visited countries. The old and rusty ‘welcome in Zambia’ sign is a famous picture moment for our drivers and customers. The first city we get to in Zambia is the third biggest city of the country, Chipata. For an African town Chipata is well organised and ideal for a first delicious picnic at Mama Rula’s. When all guests are satisfied we continue our journey to Mfuwe, 45 minutes before arriving we have the next highlight on our trip, Mpata Mountain. This is a beautiful spot which gives a view of the entire Luangwa Valley. Just before we arrive in the camp we pass by Tribal

Textiles who create beautiful hand painted traditional and contemporary fabric. On arrival, it is the camp manager on site who takes over the job from the driver. Crowded with elephants, hippos and other wildlife, his primary job is to be alert, making sure the safety and convenience of our guests is guaranteed. Collecting the food which guests have in their bags is an important task. Every year we have elephants trying to break in tents or chalets looking for a candy bar or a bag of crisps.

noon drive delivers spectacular landscape pictures. According to the wish list of the guests the guide is doing his best to find the guests favourite animals. Not surprising, lions, leopards, hyena’s and buffalos are at the top of almost every wish list. Other sought after but rarely spotted animals are the porcupine and the aardvark. Fortunately in South Luangwa almost every safari weekend is spoiled with special sightings such as a family of leopards, a crocodile killing an impala or an antelope trying to escape from a pack of hungry wild dogs. While the predators are hunting for their food, our chefs are cooking a delicious meal for the hungry guests coming back from their night drive. A good glass of wine or a cold beer with a roaring lion in the background will do for most guests to have a much needed deep sleep. The following morning is ideal for early birds. Breakfast is at 5:30 to make sure that you can catch the predators coming back from their hunt once more before they go for their sleep. The ordinary safari weekend includes 3 or 4 game drives, however many animals will be also seen when you dip in the pool of one of the many lodges around South Luangwa. An amazing bush breakfast, filling in of evaluation forms and some verbal feedback, at the Luangwa River (eastern border of the park) is the last activity before the guests are heading home. Our drive back to Malawi is a predictable one for the driver, most tourists are dozing and dreaming about being on the set of the Lion King.

The biggest excitement starts when the guests start their game viewing activities in the park. Most tour operators and lodges are offering 4 hour long game drives with a small tea break in between, inside the park. Especially the sundowner break on the late after-

National Parks Another relic of early inhabitants of the area is a collection of rock art. This is a group of paintings made thousands of years ago using indigenous painting materials and skills that can be seen in caves, till this day!

Citizens - Adult - $1 Citizens - Children under 12 - Free Resident - Adults - $7 Resident - Children under 12 - Free International - Adult - $10 International - Children under 12 - Free Vehicle entry fee - MK750 - MK1250

All these works of our early ancestors are present in the Solonje area, in the west of the park close to the Zambian border. Miondwe Wildlife Camp is the nearest park station to these treasures. For climbers, Miondwe, Wang’ombe Rumen, Singwe and Chipiri Hills provide a perfect opportunity to stretch a few muscles! Lake Malawi National Park This, the world’s first freshwater National Park and a World Heritage Site, is within the Nankumba peninsula, where the lake breaks into two arms.

Kasungu National Park In the west of the central region, bordering Zambia is Kasungu National Park, an 800 sq mile (2100 sq km) area of natural woodland and bush with occasional stretches of more open grass. Poaching has reduced the number of some species of animals but, contrary to rumours in some quarters, there is still plenty of wildlife to be seen. Elephants and antelopes are common, as are small herds of buffalo and zebra. The cats include both lions and leopards. Inhabiting the bush are hyenas, wild dogs, servals and jackals. There is a significant number of hippos in the lake at Lifupa and as elsewhere in Malawi, the birdwatcher is well catered for. This is a park which is relatively easy to drive around. Access to the park has been greatly improved in recent years and it is relatively easy to reach from Lilongwe (approx. 100 miles/160km), Blantyre 450Km.Driving to the park through fields of tobacco, maize, groundnuts also provides an exciting contrast to the city noise that you leave behind.

Cape Maclear is the most well known for tourism part of the park but Maleri Islands, Nkhudzi Hills and Nkhudzi Spit, Mwenya Hills and Monkey Bay as well as Thumbi East are also beautiful locations within the park. It was designated as a National Park in 1980, to protect the diversity of tropical fish living there, some not found anywhere else on earth. The park includes a land area around the cape and bay, as well as the lake and islands up to 100 metres (330ft) off shore. Here is a veritable aquarium of tropical fish providing a colourful kaleidoscopic display. Of the countless thousands of freshwater fish, the mbuna cichlids are more abundant and varied here than anywhere else in the world. Boats are available for hire and the fish will feed directly from the hand.

Apart from the game and birds, the park contains evidence of the tools that were used by early inhabitants of the area probably dating back to the Iron Age. These come in form of iron smelting kilns which, despite minimal protection from agents of weather, still stand today!

National Parks pools in the eastern area of the park just a short distance from the main gate. The advantages of the hides are that one may see a mix of wildlife together at the water-hole. The park is the most northern place in the world to find indigenous Nyala. Other antelope like the magnificent kudu also roam the park as do common duiker, the small Livingstone’s suni, bushbuck and impala. Baboon, vervet and blue monkeys, bush-baby, warthog, bush pig and buffalo are also seen in the park.

Away from the Lake, the park has baboons, antelope and hyrax and of course, there is a great variety of birdlife including fish eagles, cormorants and hamerkops. There is a lot to do for the tourist in Lake Malawi National Park. These include, sunset boat rides, snorkelling, scuba diving, bicycle rides through the village or up the hilly road, swimming, going on traditional fishing trips on dugouts with the locals, learning how to prepare traditional meals and many others….the local guides will brief you about all this! Hiking on the park’s many hills will be an experience you would not forget. The park also has cultural and historical sites like the first Livingstonia Mission site by Scottish Missionaries and their grave site, Mwala wa Mphini (the Rock with natural tattoos),the cross painting, Otter point and the Ilala ship yard at Monkey Bay, where Malawi’s oldest sailing ship starts its journeys up north and back. Lengwe National Park This park is 350 sq miles (900 sq km) in extent at only an hours drive (80 km) from Blantyre. The vegetation is thicket, with some deciduous woodland and denser tree growth along the stream courses. In the eastern area a network of driveable tracks will lead you through the 80 sq km of park that is accessible for game viewing. Low hills, outcrops of sandstone, adorn the west of the park.

In total there are five species of primates. Predators are leopard and hyena. The birdlife of Lengwe is attractive with about 300 or so species recorded. The government tourist lodge was renovated and refurbished in 2003 and now operates as Nyala Lodge. Depending on rainfall other than road leading to Nyala Lodge some of the other roads in the park are inaccessible in January or February. Game viewing can be done on foot using either guides from Nyala Lodge or scouts from the Lengwe National Park office. Liwonde National Park Although only 220 sq miles (580 sq km). It is about 100 miles (160 km) north of Blantyre and only more than half that distance from the hotels on the southern lakeshore. Additionally, game viewing is enhanced because the River Shire flows along its western border. Wildlife includes large numbers of elephants and the river attracts countless hippos and crocodiles. Antelope include kudu, sable and bushbuck. There are lions, leopards and more recently,

Lengwe is quite arid outside the rainy season and many of the water courses become dry sandy channels. This aids game viewing because it forces the animals to use the few pools that are permanent supplies of water. There are hides and man-made

the black rhino has been re-introduced into the rhino sanctuary, currently there are 16 rhinos in the sanctuary which are planned to be released sometime in the near future. Birdlife is exceptionally varied. Pel’s fishing owl is often seen at dusk along the river’s edge. There is accommodation in the way of Mvuu Lodge and nearby Mvuu Camp. To reach the riverside lodge, visitors can approach by road and then be ferried across the river, they can drive through the park or they can use a pre-arranged boat from Liwonde town. In the southern region of the park, close to town, there is also accommodation available at Liwonde Safari Camp and Bushman’s Baobabs. There is an airstrip, served by scheduled and charter flights. Nyika National Park In 1965 the Nyika National Park became the first certified park in Malawi. Nyika is Malawi’s largest park with an area of no less than 1250 sq miles (3200 sq km). It extends across the great plateau which is essentially a granitic dome and its environment is like none other in Africa. The name, Nyika, means “where the water comes from” and it is, indeed, one of Malawi’s most important catchment areas. The rolling scenery is at its best in the rainy season when over 200 types of orchid are in flower. The grasslands of Nyika are also rich in wildflowers in other seasons. Nyika is wonderful for trekking, with the route from Chilinda in the centre of the park to Livingstonia Mission and then eventually to the lake at Chitimba!

Mountain biking, walking and driving day safaris, as well as more conventional 4x4 excursions are available. The montane vegetation attracts large numbers of antelope from the diminutive duiker to eland and roan. Zebra are common. The park has one of the highest densities of leopard in central Africa and there are a number of species of smaller mammals such as warthog and bush pig. Elephants and buffalo usually keep to the lower ground on the northern edge of the park but elephants have been seen on the high plateau, on a number of occasions. For the birdwatcher, the park has a lot to offer: over 400 species have been recorded. The rare Denham’s bustard and the wattled crane are among those to be seen, as is the red-winged francolin - endemic to Nyika. There is such a lot to see and do in the vast park: waterfalls, a Neolithic rock shelter, trout fishing and even a ‘magic lake’ are just some of the attractions. There is an airstrip for fly-in safaris. Michuiru Nature Sanctuary Michiru Nature Sanctuary is situated 9 km from Blantyre and is part of Michiru Mountain. It is a beautiful area of 12.5 sq. km. which consists of brachystegia woodland and some riverine forest. There is wildlife present namely hyaena, bushbuck, common duiker, porcupine, civet cat, genet, hyrax and Cape hare. Over 200 species of birds have been recorded. For visitors there are an Education / Interpretation Centre, a Picnic Spot with barbeque and six trails of varying length including one to the Peak (1470 m) affording superb views as far as Zomba Mountain to the east and the Shire Valley across to the Kirk Range in the west. Michiru Nature Sanctuary is managed by the Department of National Parks and Wildlife and receives huge support from the Blantyre Branch of the Wildlife and Environmental Society of Malawi. The Society maintains the trails and trail signage, repairs bridges, provides a snare bounty and has obtained funding for eleven scout houses. This lovely area provides a haven of peace away from the bustle and noise of Blantyre City and is the only mountain around Blantyre that still has indigenous forest and some wildlife.

Wildlife Reserves picnics taken. There are also shelters for picnics at the Kapachira Falls and on Hall Martin Road. Inside Majete there are three different types of accommodation. Situated around a serene floodlit waterhole that attracts a variety of wildlife, Thawale Lodge is a peaceful haven from which to experience Majete. Completely unfenced, the camp is regularly visited by wildlife. Thawale Lodge offers six double and twin tented chalets all en-suite and each with its own private veranda overlooking the waterhole. There is also a family chalet with two onsuite bedrooms, veranda and living room. In the north of the reserve, Robin Pope Safaris operate in a private concession and run the exclusive up market Mkulumadzi Lodge.

Majete Wildlife Reserve Majete Wildlife Reserve is a 70,000 hectare tract of pristine bush in the southern region of Malawi, one hour’s drive from Blantyre. In 2003 African Parks, in agreement with the Department of National Parks and Wildlife, took over the management of the Reserve. To date, over 142km of fencing has been completed around Majete and its total length is patrolled on a daily basis. In addition, 250km of road network has been constructed. The most significant change which has really seen Majete come back to life is the reintroduction of species previously eradicated by poaching. Since 2003 over 2,500 animals have been reintroduced from fourteen species including elephant, black rhino, leopard, buffalo, eland and sable, and these have increased to over 10,000 animals today. Lion were re-introduced in 2012 making Majete one of the only reserves in Malawi where the BIG FIVE can be viewed all year round. As a visitor you can explore this magnificent reserve in your own vehicle or go on a guided drive in one of the safari vehicles accompanied by a professional wildlife guide. Other activities include guided bush walks or bird walks, boat trips on the Shire River, Behind the Scenes conservation tour, hiking to the top of Mabele Hills, visiting the Kapachira Falls and view spots or a visit to one of our local communities. There are viewing hides built over water holes and near the Shire River at Mvuu spot where wildlife and birds can be seen and

Wildlife Reserves Africa Parks Limited manage the reserve under a PPP with Malawi Government. They have built a 19000ha sanctuary to accommodate 500 elephants and several other antelopes. During 2016-17 over 2000 animals will be moved to the Sanctuary. During the second half of 2017 African Parks will also open a day visitor facility in the Reserve and expand the number of trails available for day visitors and lodges as part of its tourism strategy. Tongole Wilderness Lodge will also open a Camping area in June 2017 for campers to visit the middle of the reserve. Vwaza Wildlife Reserve Vwaza Wildlife Reserve, an area of marsh and plain, with a few rocky outcrops, is all of 400 sq miles (1000 sq km) and lies along the Zambian border north-west of Mzuzu. Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve Nkhotakota, located close to the lake shore, only three hours from Lilongwe, is one of the two large game areas in the central region. Its vast 1800km2 consists of pristine Miombo woodland spread over rugged terrain and crossed by several rivers, which tumble down the edge of the Rift Valley escarpment as they make their way to the Lake. Although dominated by Miombo woodland the reserve has large areas of riverine vegetation and dambos with a small but perfectly preserved patch of Montane Forest capping the summit of Chipata Mountain.

The reserve has a wonderful mix of vegetation: forest and grassland, thin woodland and marsh. It is this rich habitat which attracts a splendid range of birdlife. Nearly 300 species of birds have been recorded including stork, heron and the white-faced tree duck. Herds of thirty or forty elephants are regularly to be seen and there are large numbers of hippos. Lake Kazuni, near the main entrance to the reserve is famous for its hippos. Buffalo are present in the reserve but their roaming habits make their sightings less easy to predict. Kazuni Safari Camp offer accommodation in this area.

This is a wonderful example of true wilderness, which particularly attracts those who wish to enjoy walking safaris, fishing and hiking. The park offers spectacular scenery and views from peaks across the reserve as well as adventurous walking along the rivers. Access to the reserve and lodges is possible with saloon cars during the dry season. Game drive trails within the reserve require a decent clearance and require four-wheel drive vehicles. The preferred activity from the lodges in the park is walking. The range of mammals in the Reserve is as good as anywhere in Malawi with elephant, sable, waterbuck, warthog regularly seen. Buffalo, leopard, roan, zebra and a wide variety of smaller mammals also make regular appearances for guests the area. Birdlife is prolific with Half-collared Kingfishers, Boehm’s bee-eaters, Fin foot and Palm nut vultures among over 280 recorded species.

Just outside the reserve is the community-owned Chigwere Cultural Lodge, an initiative by the community under the guidance of the Department of Parks and Wildlife. The intention is to make sure communities take part in the tourism activities in the area to ensure that they economically benefit from eco-tourism.

88

At the cultural lodge tourists experience the true rural life of Kazuni. Traditional dances, food, and all other ways of life in Malawi’s rural north are available at this village. Access to the reserve is largely by road either from Mzuzu, the Northern city of Malawi or from Tanzania, passing through Rumphi District Headquarters or from Nyika National Park. Visitors can also fly in through the grass surfaced landing strip, for lighter aircraft.

ing it for about 20 minutes before it disappeared. It was such a treat to see the animals in the wild and to be able to see them from such a close distance...

Editor: This was sent to us by a fascinated customer staying on Domwe Island with Kayak Africa who was intrigued by the African Civet.... As we were walking through the foot paths up to the kitchen area some of the other guests coming down asked if we had seen the civets and the wild pigs. I was very disappointed as I had always wanted to see a civet and though I had missed my chance. Regardless, after about 10 minutes preparing food in the kitchen two civets ventured out and could just been seen on the edge of the circle of light from the kitchen. It was really exciting to watch them and they eventually got to within about 10m of us. They seem very comfortable around humans and I’m sure they have learnt to scavenge for food in an area on Domwe when humans cook. Later at night, lying in bed, we could hear them running around in the leaves under our platform. We got up and located one with a torch, watch-

Introduction and Appearance The African Civet is a small cat-like mammal belonging to the family Viverridae, genus, cevettictis and species civetta. Civettictis is derived from a combination of the French word civette and the Greek word ictis, meaning weasel. There are 35 species of the civet family Viverridae found throughout Southeast Asia and Africa, the best known of which is our own African Civet. Although they appear to most closely resemble felines, they are in fact more closely related to Weasels and Mongooses. African Civets are generally 65 – 90cm in length with adults weighing between 10 and 20kg. Their coat is comprised of a coarse greyish fur interspersed with black spots and stripes. They have a lean, pointed grey face. Black rings around the civet’s eyes give it the appearance of a racoon. The pattern of stripes and spots on any civet’s coat is unique, much like that of a leopard, making each animal individually identifiable. Civets have 5 toes on each paw with long non-retractable claws, although their spoor only shows 4 toes, as the first toe does not touch the ground. In the wild civets live for 10 – 12 years and in captivity they can live for up to 20 years. Behaviour and Reproduction Civets are nocturnal and lead very secretive lives, emerging only after the sun sets to forage for food. They are solitary creatures, coming together only during times of breeding, when they are known to gather in groups of up

Business to 15 animals. At one year of age they become sexually active and after a two month gestation period typically a female will give birth to 1-3 offspring. The young civets are entirely dependent on their mother’s milk for the first six weeks of their lives, but they grow rapidly and by the age of two months they begin foraging and hunting their own food. When threatened they are known to growl deeply and cough explosively. Habitat The African Civet inhabits forests and grasslands of Southern and Central Africa. The animals prefer areas with some amount of cover to provide a safe place to rest during the day. Civets are rarely found in arid regions and prefer to be close to a permanent water source. Interestingly they are rather good swimmers. Studies via radio tracking have found that an adult can have a home range as large as 11km. Diet As omnivores, a civet’s diet includes rodents, birds, eggs, frogs, insects, crabs and fruit. They are also capable of taking on poisonous millipedes and snakes. A study in Zimbabwe showed that during the warm, wet summer months their diet contains mainly of insects, whilst during the cooler drier months more birds and mice are consumed. The civet uses its teeth and mouth rather than its claws to capture and kill prey. When food is scarce they can fast for up to two weeks Economic Importance The musk scent produced by civets is highly valued as an ingredient in expensive perfumes. This scent is known as civetone and is produced by both male

1

and female animals from two perineal glands at the rear of the animal. The glands take the form of swellings about 30 mm long and 20 mm wide. Civetone on its own has a very strong and even repulsive smell, and only becomes pleasant and aromatic when diluted. An adult civet produces around 4 g of musk every week, which in the year 2000 was selling for $500/ kg on the international trade market. This musk is often collected from animals in the wild, although there are many places where civets are captured and kept in captivity in order to harvest their scent more easily. This is generally an extremely cruel practice because animals are kept in tiny cages barely larger than their bodies. Animal rights groups have expressed concern about both the harvesting of musk from wild animals and the keeping of civets in captivity. As a result, the scent is now largely produced artificially, and today very few perfumes contain actual musk from a civet. Other Interesting Facts A cousin of the African Civet, the Asian Palm Civet is instrumental in the production of some of the world’s most expensive coffee called Kopi Luwak. Retail prices for the highest variants of this coffee can reach $700 per kg, although low grade mass produced variants will only fetch $ 100 per kg. Kopi Luwak is produced from coffee cherries that have been eaten by the Asian Palm Civet and after partial digestion they are defecated. The faeces are collected and thoroughly washed so that only the partly digested coffee berries remain. After removing the endocarp and drying, the berries are roasted to produce the famous Kopi Luwak coffee.

A positive portrayal of Malawi from the outside world is depressingly hard to come by. The country is often used as a statistical benchmark, synonymous with poverty or ethical malpractice. “Malawi”, scold international articles loudly, “is one of the world’s poorest countries.” True though the qualification may be, it remains only economic, in terms of cultural heritage, Malawi is among the worlds most wealthy. Its extraordinarily diverse output of visual arts, music, theatre, crafts and literature calls not only to be consolidated and preserved, but above all to be celebrated. As an immigrant to Malawi, I can only ever offer an outsider’s impression, it will inevitably be flawed and incomplete. Explanation of particular aspects should be left to specialists. In this short space I simply hope to illuminate the

breadth and wealth of what the country’s culture affords and the urgent need to take it seriously. ‘Culture’ is a slippery term to define but it is broadly understood to be the way of life, the customs and beliefs of a people. It encompasses that people’s expression of knowledge through arts, performance, music, ideas, stories and mythologies. From its Latin roots, the word has preserved religious undertones and demands to be cared for, tended and inhabited. Malawi’s culture is undeniably fully inhabited on a day-to-day basis. The visual fabric of the country is peppered with colour and form, from the stylish zitenje to the simple beauty invested in functional objects, pestles, woven mats, nsima spoons, dove houses and children’s toys. Music occupies almost every aspect of daily life. Worship, mourning, work-

ing, food preparation, even eating in public can be accompanied by a bard’s renditions. Malawi’s traditional folktales are dark and mysterious, laced with magic, retribution and justice, the wisdom is handed down orally from one generation to the next. Although a written documentation of these folktales, “Tales of Old Malawi” is now out of print, the late author’s son, artist Ellis Singano, is working to create a visual illustration of each story through batik. National culture is enriched and diversified still further by Malawi’s dense combination of tribal peoples. In dance for instance there is preserved an intangible heritage and oral mythology. Take for example the sacred Gule Wamkulu of the Chewa, used for social instruction, the Vimbuza exorcism dance of the Tumbuka or the heroic Ingoma of the Ngoni. Historian D. D. Phiri has written much on the history of the Ngoni peoples and this dance, see for instance ‘History of Malawi’ (2004) and ‘From Nguni to Ngoni’ (1982). Pockets across the country produce idiosyncratic and often unexpected creativity. Just outside Salima there is a thriving production of thatched dolls’ houses complete with detachable roofs and the occasional reed telephone inside. Pots on sale on the Blantyre-Zomba road preserve a form and style that has remained remarkably unchanged for thousands of years. Chongoni Rock Art in

Dedza is a World Heritage Site, featuring the richest concentration of rock art in Central Africa. The Golomoti-Dedza road arches its way down the mountainside, with views sheering off into something Van Gough might have imagined in Europe’s mirror, ending in the bruised troubled stubble of a mountainous horizon. There shouldn’t be any industry at all along this road. The terrain is too sheer and rocky for agricultural cultivation and traffic so seldom that no roadside trade should exist. And yet there is a small community which subsists off one craft, a specialized carving of wooden vehicles. The meticulously faithful wooden replicas of cars and trucks are the brainchild of John Singano. When the road was being built in 1964, Singano (born to farming parents) watched the movements of construction vehicles and taught himself how to carve them out in wood, complete with hydraulic cylinders, caterpillar wheels and 360 degree swivel joints. He then trained his whole village in his craft. Singano’s models are testament to the impact of technology on rural Malawi, his artistic reinterpretation provides a beneficial engagement and reclamation of the otherwise inaccessible vehicles speeding past. Perhaps the treasure of Malawian culture is KuNgoni Centre for Culture and Arts in Mua. A community of carvers, consolidated by Father Boucher

www.theeyemw.com


Business Chisale, animates the internationally celebrated Centre, whose unique style of carving reflects the synergy between the Church, traditional beliefs and artistic practices. Wooden figures and forms work to preserve ancient beliefs and practices of the Yao, Chewa and Ngoni tribes, as well as to give moral instruction on contemporary social challenges. KuNgoni carvings can now be found in private collections throughout Africa, Europe and America and even in Buckingham Palace, Oxford University and the Vatican museum. Malawi’s cultural output is prolific and diverse, far more than this article can do justice to. The sad paradox is that many tourists and temporary visitors to Malawi may not come into contact with the more complex aspects of Malawian culture. Artists operating in prime tourist locations often feel compelled to produce Work Which Sells, creating quick reproductions to generate income rather than to develop and preserve a style. This ‘art’, be it visual, musical or theatrical, is meant for foreign export and not for home use. However, if the tourism industry is to be developed, it is crucial to consolidate a sense of pride in Malawi’s preexisting cultural heritage, not only for international consumption, but also for Malawians themselves. Cue the Jacaranda Cultural Center in Blantyre. Opened just over a year ago, the center’s primary aim is to provide a platform for culture and the arts for public celebration and through this to promote an integrated, multicultural appreciation. We host regular art exhibitions, acoustic concerts, theatre performances, film screenings, artists’ round tables and writers’ sessions, children’s storytelling, drama workshops, art classes, language classes (Chichewa, French, Portuguese), book launches and poetry slams. We honour national heroes, like Dr. D.D. Phiri, and, more recently, the winners of the Mulanje Porters’ Race. This is a space in which Malawian national identity is celebrated.

No handwringing or head-hanging here please, with special emphasis given to promoting young talent, since it is the young who will learn and develop the crafts and industries for the future. The center does not exist for financial profit, although any money we do make goes directly back to the Jacaranda School for Orphans. It is Jacaranda School which provides the backbone to the center; the school instills in learners a deep respect for Malawian cultural heritage from an early age, sensitively incorporating multicultural influences. Art, dance, theatre and literature remain Jacaranda’s priorities in a child’s education. As a result learners are more engaged at school and final exam grades are increasingly outstanding. Jacaranda then funds tertiary education, or finds vocational positions for alumni. In fact, the Jacaranda Cultural Center is held together by ex-students, technicians, administrators, and performers who work there in between their further studies. Jacaranda is now not just a school for orphans, it is a vehicle for upwards-spiraling social change. The Jacaranda model proves that Malawi is much more than simply one of the world’s poorest countries. Jacaranda provides a platform for the creativity, wisdom and ingenuity inherent in Malawian cultural identity. It is this identity which must be preserved and consolidated for future generations. As philosopher Edward S. Casey wrote, “To be cultural, to have a culture, is to inhabit a place sufficiently intensive to cultivate it, to be responsible for it, to respond to it, to attend to it caringly.” Jacaranda Cultural Centre does exactly that, not just for now, but for the generation of caretakers to come.
