The month of February has been a very interesting one. All across the world, many people consider February as the month of love. For that very reason, I dedicated this blog to “the things we love” at RSC.

We love helping you have a great time, safely

The month started with interesting first aid and defensive driving courses for all our guides and drivers. We understand that traveling (especially long distance) comes with many risks and that is why we value and love safety precautions. Each year, our guides undergo a series of practical and theoretical exams to ensure they are on top of their game when it comes to treating injuries and driving you safely throughout the country.

We also have a series of medical insurance brokers that we are partnered with for incidences that may need air evacuation etc. For more information on this, please refer to our Facebook site.

We love creating connections.

It’s one thing to travel and cross off yet another destination on your bucket list and it’s a whole other matter to create ties with the places you visit.

Our 2018 expeditions paved the way for connections to be made. Our popular “Women’s Expedition” which was so nice we ran it twice that year, gave women from different backgrounds the opportunity to learn skills and development tools from one another in order to help their businesses thrive. One day’s worth of entrepreneurial workshops, developed into mentorship hours and for some, even friendships.

We love getting to know the team.

For those of you who may recall, our team underwent a series of trainings together in 2018. This time around, we spent a night together in Monkey Bay, playing board games and sharing laughs.

During two days spent together, we discovered that our guide Ronald had never been on a boat on Lake Malawi! He has been on several boat rides, but not on the Lake of Stars. We hired a boat at Cape Maclear and swam among the cichlids on Thumbi island. The water is crystal clear and if you’re patient enough, you might coax one of these jewel coloured fish to swim right into your hands. Wellie was right at home in the water (he is from Nkhata Bay, another lakeshore town) and he helped some of the team swim out farther away from the boat safely.

That evening, we raced the sunset to reach our lodge for the night, The Mogfords, in Monkey Bay. A sprawling resort in a secluded part of the Bay, it is still under construction but sure to become one of the favourite destinations for business travellers. The rooms were large and their staff were friendly and helpful.

What are the things that you love and got to do in February? Let us know in the comments of our Facebook post.
