Description: 

The upper Shire River at Mangochi (formerly Fort Johnston), Malawi as seen from the air shortly after takeoff from Mangochi. The upper Shire, a stretch of about 16 km between Lake Malawi and Lake Malombe, has many of the sandy and soft bottom dwelling cichlids endemic to Lake Malawi. Its fish fauna is quite distinct from that of the middle and lower Shire. Looking ENE. 26-April-1971 photo © M.K. Oliver
