Liwonde National Park may not have the game to rival such giants as the Masai Mara, but what it lacks in game, it certainly makes up for in natural beauty and a quintessentially African atmosphere. Warthogs graze in front of your tent during the day, while hippos grunt outside it at night and elephant, crocodile and antelope are the stars of daily game drives.
Few countries are so dominated by one geographical feature as Malawi by its great lake. Enclosed by mountains and edged by beautiful white sand beaches swaying with palms, this the perfect spot to unwind after a safari. Malawi’s fantastic music scene is showcased here in October each year at ‘The Lake of Stars Festival’, with acclaimed musicians from Malawi and the world coming to town and performing live on the lakeshore. We can arrange for beautiful luxury beachside lodges, visits to Likoma Island, home to one of the largest cathedrals in Africa, or even your own private yacht.
The highland areas of Malawi are where the country truly shows its charm. From the tea and coffee plantations of Thyolo, to the alpine highlands of the Nyika Plateau, the countryside is enchanting. Find excellent fishing at Tongole, riding at Huntingdon House and game walks and hiking at Chelinda.
Majete National Park is the perfect example of the many game reserves across the continent that are being restored to their former glory. Heavily poached in the 80’s and 90’s, the new century sees the wildlife returning in force. Black rhinos have been translocated into the area, elephants and buffalo roam the area once more, and there are plans afoot to return big cats to the ecosystem. Travel now to experience eco-tourism in action and enjoy the wilderness before the masses discover it.
