Malaika Beach Resort

Life isn’t always like this but working here at Isamilo has given us access to some fabulous places such as Malaika Beach Resort on the shores of Lake Victoria. We have spent a glorious afternoon here enjoying the infinity pool. We met some colleagues here (great minds think alike).
