Travelling and culture enthusiasts in the country have all reasons to smile during the festive season as Paulendo Adventures has organized a three-day exploratory activity dubbed “Paulendo Festive Adventure”.
Speaking to iHubOnline, Team Leader of the group Yangairo Yangairo said the grouping has planned the activity as a way of promote tourism and culture during the festive season.
“We have organized the 3-day event in order to provide fun loving people a chance to travel to wonderful tourism attraction sites and at the same time expose people to cultural diversity Malawi own during the festive season.
“Malawi is rich with traditional dances, food, beautiful sceneries and the iconic Lake Malawi. It is high time we explored all these in a single trip,” he said.
According to Yangairo, the trip, slatted for 21st to 23rd December 2019, will involve a road trip to Chongoni to see Akafula Paintings and Mua Museum in Dedza, plus hiking, boat riding and sight-seeing at Mwala wa Mphini at Cape Maclear in Mangochi.
Yangairo justified the K 96,000 trip contribution as being fair, it claiming such an activity requires a lot of resources to be successful.
“To pull such an activity requires huge investment. Looking at a price of K 96,000 kwacha for 3 days covering meals, accommodation and transport it is surely fair,” Yangairo explained.
One of the first travelers in the initial trip organized by Paulendo, Emmanuel Maliro, says time has come for Malawians to get to know their country.
Writing on his Facebook page, Maliro laments the trend whereby some foreign tourists get to know Malawi better than the locals.
“When I travel abroad, people from different countries ask me about different attractive or interesting places in the country that I have never heard of before. As a Malawian, born and bred, I need to know Malawi better than foreigners. Enough. Time to know my country. Paulendo,” writes Maliro.
Paulendo Adventures is a Blantyre Based group that was formed earlier this year, with the aim of promoting tourism, fitness and environment conservation.
The grouping has so far organized mountain hikes to Sapitwa-Mulanje Mountain, road trip to Malape Pillars in Machinga District and Mathithi Falls in Machinjiri.
