Malawi is a wonderfully unique choice of destination for families with no shortage of adventures to be had including a Big 5 safari in Majete Wildlife Reserve. Whether you're kayaking with the kids on Lake Malawi, sharing exciting stories of wildlife sightings around the campfire in Liwonde National Park or trekking through the lush forests on top of Zomba Mountain, Malawi is one of Africa's hidden gems, perfect for the family on the look-out for something different.
Despite not necessarily being known for family holidays most lodges in Malawi welcome children and teens, offering accommodation which is mostly small and very personal. Through thorough research our Mahlatini family holiday experts have chosen a few very special places run by warm and welcoming locals who go out of their way to make your family holiday extra special.
If you are the kind of family to take a leap of faith and visit somewhere which may be perceived to be a bit 'off the beaten track' we will passionately assist you in making this happen. We promise, you will not regret taking your children to the 'Warm Heart of Africa'.
