Lake Malawi - Malawi

A few weeks ago when I received an envelope sent by Emerich, I've got 5 special cards, very special I must say. 5 UNESCO cards from 3 african countries. We all know how hard it can be to get UNESCO from certain african countries. This one from Malawi is my 1st from this country. Malawi only has 2 WHS, Lake Malawi National Park was classified in 1984.

Nkhata Bay is the capital of the Nkhata Bay District in Malawi. It is on the shore of Lake Malawi, east of Mzuzu, and is one of the main ports on Lake Malawi. 
Lake Malawi, also known as Lake Nyasa in Tanzania and Lago Niassa in Mozambique, is an African Great Lake and the southernmost lake in the East African Rift system, located between Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania. It is the ninth largest lake in the world and the third largest and second deepest lake in Africa. It is home to more species of fish than any other lake, including about 1000 species of cichlids. - in: wikipedia
