Cape Maclear Budget Travel

Cape Maclear is a small fishing village on Lake Nyasain in Malawi with a population of about 10,000, making Cape Maclear budget travel one of Malawi's best kept secrets.

Cape Maclear has only one dirt road that leads into and out of town. With a very slow pace of life, this main road has a few hostels, some dive shops, vendors who sell curios and fruit and a few bars, making it an ideal backpacking stop-over on any Malawi Overland Tour.
