Gig

Another day and another gig in Africa. Malawi you were a fun audience with lots of boogying and laughter, it was definitely a feast for the senses. Everyone seemed to be in bright spirits what a lovely energy the people of Malawi have. The kids at the front really made this day one to never forget.

Thank you to everyone for getting involved and letting go! Malawi, thanks for having us. You exceeded expectations, with your beautiful scenery and wonderful wildlife. We hope to see you again sometime soon. #JSTWT

Charity

We visited a wonderful charity in Malawi called Lilongwe Wildlife Trust. Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world and has one of the fastest growing populations in Africa, placing natural resources under immense pressure. Wildlife crimes – such as the illegal ivory, bush-meat, pet and charcoal trades – impact both wild animal welfare as well as species conservation in Malawi, and also stand as one of the greatest threats to wildlife survival worldwide.

Lilongwe Wildlife Trust is dedicated to protecting Malawi’s wildlife and its habitats. The Wildlife Centre is Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary and so far this year they have rescued 138 animals and have 187 currently in care. They run the country’s Wildlife Emergency Response Unit as a joint project with the government which deals with all other wildlife rescues, which is currently mostly snared elephants. They also helped on African Park’s elephant translocation.

It's great to see a charity like this put so much care and love into looking after the animals. It was a unique experience for us all and inspiring to know that these animals are well cared for. The work done here by all involved is amazing, it is definitely worthwhile and most importantly, is very successful at reintroducing them to the wild. On the day we met some lovely school children who we chatted to, they were all very well informed about how important the animals are. It was great to see so much enthusiasm amongst them. What a heart warming experience. Thank you for having us.
