I have been asked many times about what scares me in Malawi….to be totally honest, I struggle to think of anything that truly scares me. I get uncomfortable sometimes, but I could only think of 2 things that really scare me in Malawi.
I am absolutely frightened by crocodiles (ngona) and hippos (mvuu). I recently watched some of my video footage of the safari at Mvuu camp, and I realized I can’t even hold the camera still for more than a few seconds while filming them. I have to look away. I look for both of these creatures everywhere we go in Malawi…even if there is literally zero chance of seeing them.
