“Lake Lake” 

 





Just as Sahara Desert means “Desert Desert”, and.. The River Avon (UK) means “River River”, and.. Astana, the Capital of Kazakhstan, means “Capital”.. European explorer David Livingstone “discovered” the Lake in 1859, and gave it the name of Lake Nyasa, now correctly called Lake Malawi.. So, Lake Nyasa simply means “Lake Lake”, as “Nyasa” is Swahili for “Lake”.
