Final school expedition for 2016 a great success!

Mountain Experience together with Camps International and the American School of Dubai, have finished a great expedition in Malawi. 19 students and 2 teachers joined Nigel Lewis for a road trip through Khuti National Reserve, Cape Maclear on the shores of Lake Malawi and down to Liwonde National Park before returning to Lilongwe.

The students undertook service projects including construction and renovation work at the Park Offices and a local school, and assisted with planting new trees that will help local farmers fix nitrogen in their fields. Like all good expeditions, the work was mixed with exploration and fun, with students befriending local children, camping with Emus and seeing lots more wild life on boat and jeep safaris. When asked to describe his experience, student Leendert replied “Better than words!”
