Malawi 2012Posted on the 15 November 2012 by Exceedpossibility
We got the opportunity to learn about the behaviour of crocodiles, hyenas, elephants and more, working with a team preparing for a big expedition next year. This was also my first experience of working with a cameraman - filming for an upcoming expedition.
The training phase was followed by a tough four day crossing of the Mangochi Hills and Forest Reserve and the Liwonde National Park - walking 15-25 miles each day in 40-45 degree (C) heat - it was tough. A touch of heat exhaustion and some bad blisters slowed me down a little but was never going to stop me completing the walk.
It was a fantastic opportunity to learn about the African bush, widen my experience and push myself in a new environment. Even our short phase of R&R following the trekking phase, in Cape Maclear, proved exciting - we were called in to fire fighting mode; fighting a huge fire - carrying buckets of water, ripping thatch off of roofs and more - certainly an experience!
