Explore more of Malawi
Malawi is one of Africa’s most beautiful countries, where the great rift valley cradles Lake Malawi, under the towering ranges of the Nyika Hills. You visit Malawi to get off the beaten track, to walk the hills and plateau, to relax on a remote island in the Lake. The scenery is spectacular and the people warm hearted.
The Liwonde National Park beside Lake Malawi is a watery paradise, similar in some ways to the Okavango delta. Rhinoceros, elephant, antelope and zebra abound together with over 300 species of beautiful bids including eagles, kingfishers and rollers. Take a lazy boat ride from Mvuu Camp as the sun begins to set, puttering past snorting hippo, menacing crocodiles and elephant with their young coming to drink and wallow at the water’s edge.
A light aircraft takes you over the expanses of the Lake to Kaya Mawa, a luxurious island hideaway where you can swim, snorkel, sail, windsurf and relax in secluded style feeling that you have this magical corner of Africa to yourselves. The accommodation is generous and upscale in individual stonebuilt “houses”, some with two bedrooms and private plunge pool. Stroll around Likoma island and meet members of this gentle community where life goes on as it has for generations. If you want to remain on the mainland Pumalani Beach Lodge has all the ingredients for a beach holiday with none of the tourists.
In the South is the Zomba plateau, its lower slopes fringed by old tea plantations. From your cozy base at Ku Chawe Inn explore the network of walkways giving breathtaking views for a hundred miles, surrounded by luxuriant trees and a host of birds.
A week in Malawi combines well with a safari in Zambia or South Africa and it makes an unusual alternative location for a peaceful beach stay. Contact us now to begin planning your own Malawi vacation.
