February is known as the month of love but especially on Valentine’s Day 14th February, the air is filled with love and lovers spoil each other despite the day falling mid-month. In Malawi, the day is synonymous with lovers at lunch dates bikini-clad lovebirds treating each other at exotic beaches of Lake Malawi or elegant dinner and dance. But these kind of treats have become a cliché and monotonous.
Realising the need for new kind of fun Bon Voyage Tours has organised a Valentine’s Cruise on 15 February on the latest vessel on Lake Malawi Mv Mwande on 15 February.
Senior Tours consultant for Bon Voyage Tours Jacinta Amao says it will be a slow cruise with soft music playing in the background to add more ambience with snacks served on deck. And upon arrival, there will be late barbeque buffet and games by the beach followed by buffet dinner.
“We wanted to give people an experience worth remembering, memories people should be able to cherish, this sort of a trip is the first of its kind in Malawi, and we are proud to be associated with it,” says Amao.
The vessel will depart from Livingstonia Beach Hotel at 7am and is expected to arrive at Ngala Beach at approximately 2pm.
There will be performances by Chilimika Dance Troupe, poetry and disco by the beach area.
There are two choices for lovers, either pay K32 500 (about $81) per person for the camping site where only tents will be provided or with accommodation at Ngala Lodge for K64 500 (about $161) per person.
