After spending two days at Cakes Lodge I think it's safe to say that Malawi is truely the warm heart of Africa. The hospitality along with the excellent service has me budgeting to come and vist again soon. A special mention goes to one of their lovely and helpful manager Innocent Kaliati, who made our stay extremly worthwhile.
