Had nice long lie in and had the added bonus of finding out that breakfast was included in the price of accommodation!! Bonus!
The owner told us about a croc farm a few km away, so we geared up and headed out along the beach, as our accommodation is right on the beach, as is most on Senga bay.
As we set off a huge storm grew behind us but wind was thankfully sending it the other direction. Suddenly the wind stopped dead and changed, blowing the storm our way, we ended up getting drenched stood underneath a sun shelter with a few locals trying to sell us more ebony sculptures.
The croc farm too an age to find and after what seemed like an age with the constant buckets of water landing on us every second we found it. We paid 400 and that got us a 20 min tour of the farm. They kill them at 4-5 years (1m) for optimum growth and skin condition. Hundreds of them. They only kill when they have a mass order, last week they killed 1500 and exported them to Italy, Germany and China. Wouldn't show me the slaughter rooms or skinning rooms.. We dis however see the crocs kept for breeding 9-10ft long one was 60 years old. Massive! Haggled us a free croc tooth too, although only a small one.
Brought bigger tooth off one of chaps in a shelter with before, he had to go home to get it and wasn't as impressive as I expected but was evidently a croc of sone age, 40 I'd say... For £2 and a pair of socks!!
Met the owners son Johann and he's here in Malawi organising a massive Shawn Paul concert, which we have seen posters all over Malawi for. We ended up buying the local liqueur which is very strong beer, drank with sprite or coke like vodka but twice as strong. And went to the beach where he had
Met some local rasters who brought there drums made from goat skin and began to play amazing drum solos and sing too. We just nodded along next to the fire with our drinks which we shared with everyone, occasionally drumming a few beats ourselves.. Most memorable evening so far. To me this is what it's about! We drummed, sang and drank until gone 12.
