This trip was amazing for my first time visiting Africa! Included multiple safaris, Lake Malawi, and Victoria Falls – but those were only part of the adventure. The time on the road and stopping at local villages as we passed by were made even better thanks our great travel fam, was sad to leave at the end but hope to see everyone again and meet even more friends on future expeditions!!
