The Explorations Company, where no two journeys have ever been the same

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!

What Do Our Clients Say?

‘Greetings. this has turned out to be a paradise in so many ways....so a big thank you from us.

Wonderful support from your company over here....we were met at the airport (with flowers!!!!!) and introduced to our personal guide who is fabulous. Can't get over the attention to detail ....cool flannels, chilled water, fresh juice on arrival, bag full of thoughtful goodies for our trip, wonderful rooms with bathrooms bigger than our bedroom at home(!) and we were upgraded to a suite and as I write we are listening to tropical birdsong as we look out over the lagoon from our balcony. Wow!!!!!

I could go on but I'll spare you.

Thanks a million

Judy and Mike’
