Combining three incredible locations namely Majete Wildlife Reserve, Liwonde National Park and Lake Malawi, you will have loads of time to explore Malawi, fondly know as “The warm heart of Africa”. Each day you can decide how you would like your day to unfold with activities including game drives, boat cruises, guided game walks, cultural tours, snorkelling, diving, birding, fishing and sunset cruises on offer.
The picturesque Majete Wildlife Reserve in the south of Malawi is a big 5 reserve which boasts species like black rhino, buffalo, sable and zebra. Your guides will uncover the riverine forests, granite hilltops and miombo woodlands for game and birds, ensuring you the best sightings and photographic opportunities. There is 7000 hectares of private concession bush to explore with a boat safari along the Shire River in search of buffalo, hippo and crocodile a must activity.
Liwonde National Park, well known for it’s excellent birding and generous elephant populations, is a beautiful reserve of floodplains, meandering rivers and giant baobabs. Game viewing is rewarding with the chance of ticking Pel’s Fishing Owl, Lillian’s Lovebird, sable antelope and black rhino off your list.
The beach component of your holiday will be spent on the idyllic shores of Lake Malawi. The third largest lake in Africa, its crystal water of hundreds of colourful cichlid fish, is one of the world’s most diverse lakes and is just waiting to be explored. Snorkelling and diving is an excellent way for you to discover the underwater world of this impressive lake. David Livingstone nicknamed it “The Lake of Stars” due to fishermen’s lanterns flickering on the water at night and resembling the stars. This magical lake and the friendly locals that live near it will leave you rejuvenated and relaxed.
