I returned to Lake Sibaya September 1 to find that the waters had receded since my previous visit in February. The blue gum trees were continuing to spell the demise of the precious resource, and there was much work to be done! Two weeks were spent recording wildlife and working with a fellow conservationist who had just finished his Masters research on the hydrology of the lake.
The team was also preparing for the upcoming expedition to Malawi, where we would spend some time monitoring the klipspringer of Liwonde National Park. There would be 10 of us on a 6-week journey round-trip from Sibaya, through Mozambique, up through Malawi - and back! But first I would be flying back to Mauritius, where I was to teach a 5 day course on open source mapping tools.
Combining a passion for travel, the desire to make a difference and a love of maps, MaggieMaps was born. A place to share stories, resources, and a way to inspire and support others in realizing their individual travel dreams.
