In the spirit of adventure and sustainable tourism, Mike Varndell joined us for our third episode of Beyond the Lodge: Rio Azul. As the managing founder of Malawian Style, Mike has an eye for high quality travel experiences which satiate the need for adventure wrapped up in the ethos of responsible travel.
Rio Azul, Mozambique, is a destination which gives the gift of time. Access to activities and landscapes are at one’s own discretion, encouraging guests to scribe their own holiday narrative. A hotspot for biodiversity, Hideaways Director Garth Jenman and Mike discussed the various experiences and ecosystems available to guests beyond the borders of the lodge.
The underwater world encapsulates the essence of a treasure chest. Mike Varndell collects this treasure in photographic form, capturing images of a predominantly untouched ecosphere. Mike shared some tips in capturing moments from this foreign realm, the colours and creatures providing a wealth of inspiration for the photographic eye.
