From the game-viewing safaris at Liwonde National Park, where one can see hippo and elephant and go out by boat, as well as by vehicle, to Mkulumadzi, where lion now can also be seen. For those wanting a more intensive, concentrated wildlife experience, one can always combine Malawi with Zambia safaris too, but with the development of the new Mkulumadzi reserve, we don’t think this is necessary any longer.
Add to this the Nyika Plateau with its lovely, cosy log cabins set amidst a pine plantation and the most awe-inspiring scenery, where one can game-view and walk – and enjoy a truly diverse and wonderful holiday. Visit the pottery at Nkhotakota – and try your hand at throwing pottery and bring home a souvenir!
Stay at a lovely, colonial tea plantation with a swimming pool and where there are lovely walks and picnics, and one can see how black tea is made. If you enjoy walking then consider Mount Mulanje to climb – for the truly fit and active! Visit the Zomba Plateau where one can mountain-bike and walk to the Falls. Stop off and see the local markets with their gorgeous avocadoes, macadamia nuts and cashews!
Then finish off at Lake Malawi, where a whole host of wonderful experiences await you! Stay at an owner-managed, family lodge and learn to sail and windsurf. Go snorkelling. Take a catamaran up the lake and sleep on-board. Stay at a wonderful, simple tented camp and kayak around the lake each day.
There is also a lovely eco-lodge on the lake set on a powder-white beach, with lots of activities on offer, both water and land-based, and it is also heavily involved with a community project. You can experience the warm welcome of village life and learn about the local tribe. Lastly, you might like to stay at a luxury lodge where one can water ski, sail, snorkel and undertake every watersport under the sun!

‘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
