Take a Hike: Mulanje Mountain Reserve

July 8th

Mulanje Mountain Reserve, Malawi

Want to take a break from whatever you are doing? How about a 10 minute escape to the jungle for a heart-pounding adventure? You are breathing some of the cleanest air on earth. A cool breeze and light mist keep you perfectly chilled while climbing the rolling path. Vervet monkeys jump above in the thick jungle canopy; their boisterous and happy cries fall downward on spellbound interlopers.
If fairies exist, we just found their Nirvana.
