Malawi is a tiny landlocked country in southern Africa, wedged between Zambia, Tanzania, and Mozambique. It’s at the southern end of the East African Great Rift Valley, and Lake Malawi, at almost 600 km long, covers most of the country’s eastern border. The lake is a huge natural aquarium, teeming with colourful fresh-water cichlids, perfect for snorkelers and kayakers.
In the south of this long, narrow country is Majete Wildlife Reserve, home to the elusive black rhino, along with elephant, buffalo, nyala, sable, eland and hartebeest. In recent years lion, leopard and cheetah have been reintroduced to Majete as part of a pioneering conservation project, making Majete the only ‘Big 5’ park in Malawi.
Spending two nights on a tea plantation introduces you to another side of this captivating country before another more wildlife encounters in Liwonde National Park.
The Shire River is the lifeblood of Liwonde National Park, attracting hippos, kudu, elephants, crocodiles and elephants, and even black rhino. From your comfortable lodge you’ll enjoy both water- and land-based game activities.
Enjoy a few relaxing days on a delightful island in Lake Malawi – a real favourite with previous guests – before flying back to Lilongwe. Your last night will be spent at a country lodge on a working farm outside the city. Here you’ll visit the Lilongwe Wildlife Trust, Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary, whose work involves rescuing and rehabilitating wild animals.
