Welcome to Austin Madinga’s
#LifeUnbound Blog

I am a explorer, storyteller and digital creator from Malawi, the land of the lake of stars. I document and tell stories about the beauty and awesomeness of Malawi, the African continent and her diverse people  through words and photography.

I would love to partner with content creators and tourism brands on storytelling projects that expand the African narrative around tourism, travel, conservation and the continent’s people.
