In October, 1999, I took a vacation to my favourite continent, Africa. I visited the countries of Zambia and Malawi on a trip that allowed me to enjoy the spectacle of African wildlife and observe the fish in Lake Malawi.
The first week was spent participating in a combined vehicle and walking safari in Zambia, under the guidance of Remote Africa Safaris. The second week was spent on Lake Malawi, home to many of the hobby's most attractive cichlid fish. I stayed with Mr. Stuart Grant, the well-known collector and exporter of tropical fish. I was able to bring back some wild-caught fish from Malawi.
