The marches are hard to reach. To get there I had to take a bicycle taxi for 30 km, stay the night at a friends place to be able to go to the marches early morning. The next day traveling back again by bicycle taxi, with a detour this time, experienced a flat tire on the way back and saw a Malawian cycle repairer at work. His wife would not let me go without giving me bananas and ground nuts. Why? Just because I was there.
And the results? A total of 360 birds, 42 different species in 3 hours time. I was happy! (and I had a sore butt from the taxi's....)
