Your unforgettable trip to


about Malawi

Malawi is known as the ‘Warm Heart of Africa’. Although not as rich in game as other African countries, the magic of Malawi lies in its glorious scenery. Apart from the legendary Malawian friendliness, what captures you first about this vivid country is its geographical diversity. Slicing through the landscape in a trough formed by the Great Rift Valley is Africa’s third-largest lake: Lake Malawi, a shimmering mass of clear water, its depths swarming with colorful cichlid fish. Lake Malawi is one of the most popular freshwater scuba diving locations in the world. If you enjoy combining a safari with chilling out on beaches, meeting the local people in an uncontrived way, then a Malawi holiday could be perfect for you.
Further south are the main wildlife reserves, the scenic Liwonde National Park – with its large herds of elephants – and the revitalized Majete Game Reserve.
Travel within Malawi is relatively easy and road transfers are possible between Lake Malawi, Liwonde, Majete and the capital city of Lilongwe and/ or Blantyre. Light aircraft charters allow access to more remote destinations such as the Nyika plateau and Likoma Island.

Lake Malawi

Lake Malawi is a vast, iridescent inland sea fringed by golden sand and dotted with wooden lodges, perfect for watersports such as kayaking, scuba diving and snorkelling. The southern end is home to Lake Malawi National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site due to its endemic cichlid fish. Its mirror-like tranquillity makes it ideal for birdwatching and animal sightings. Nights can be spent in hidden coves, sandy bays or on boulder-lined islands, in everything from bare-bones thatched huts to posh tented camps.

Liwonde National park

Liwonde is Malawi's most traditional wildlife park, with lodges and safari activities. The Shire River is the main attraction, and visitors can spot hippos, crocodiles, elephants, waterbucks, sable and roan antelopes, zebras, and elands. Boating along the river is a highlight, with the chance to see hippos, crocodiles, fish eagles, and other waterbirds. The park is also home to leopards, black rhino, and exceptional birdlife, and visitors can safari on foot, on a game drive, or by boat.

Majete Wildlife Reserve

Majete Wildlife Reserve is Malawi’s major Big Five reserve and one of its top wildlife destinations. Badly neglected and heavily poached, the reserve was rescued in 2012 by the African Parks organization. Since then, more than 2,500 animals have been reintroduced and populations of naturally occurring large animals have started to recover. Accommodation ranges from a community-owned tented camp to a five-star lodge

Nyika Plateau

This vast national park on a high-altitude plateau is very different from all other parks and reserves in the country and it is atmospheric: vast, rolling scenery of lush grasslands, forested valleys and shimmering trout pools. You can choose a trekking, mountain biking or horse riding safari to explore the verdant landscape and it’s a birder’s Arcadia too with over 400 species being spotted including the endemic red-winged francolin.. Although this isn’t a Big Five destination, there is a good amount of wildlife on the plateau

Malawi’s capital doesn’t feature heavily on tours, which usually just stop here to stock up on supplies before heading on to Lake Malawi, but any time spent here will immerse you in a sprawling and slightly chaotic city, busy with markets and commerce. Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary lies right at the city’s heart, where you can volunteer, learning about rehabilitation techniques and caring for resident animals
