Luxury Bespoke Safaris to Magical Malawi

climbing mount mulanje.jpg

Malawi is such a magical country, particularly attractive for individuals who don’t need to follow the crowd! For anybody who either knows Africa intimately or who is looking for an experience that is different, genuine, cultural and perhaps even water-based, then this is for you!

The birdlife is second-to-none, and it has such a diversity of experiences for a luxury safari in Africa, from game-viewing by boat on the Shire River in Liwonde to viewing elephant and hippo and birdlife. Visit the bustling markets selling their fish, vegetables, macadamia nuts, mangoes and avocados, as well as their woven basketware, fabulous cloths, pottery and hand-printed textiles.

The tea plantation region is gorgeous, and probably the most beautiful and diverse region of all is the Nyika plateau, reminiscent of Scotland with its heather, its vast panoramic vistas, its wild orchids and wildlife. The lake is magnificent and offers amazing catamaran holidays, whether island-to-island or mainland; snorkelling and scuba diving and kayaking around Mumbo Island. Majete Wildlife Reserve is another amazing area with a beautiful lodge now constructed within the reserve, where one can go on super African walking safaris!
