Malawi honeymoon itinerary hero

Malawi Honeymoon

Inspirational safari & beach honeymoon to Malawi

Not the typical destination for honeymooners, which will likely make it more appealing for those wanting something off-the-beaten-track.  You will visit 2 of Malawi’s wildlife reserves and then completely relax on the shores of Lake Malawi. Undiscovered by tourists, Majete is a true wilderness.  A successful story of wildlife relocation, it is now thriving and you can see the incredible wildlife on game drives, walking safaris, boat trips and from viewing hides. There’s also the chance to spend the night in a star bed or visit a nearby village and community center. 

Next, you will visit Liwonde National Park staying at Mvuu Camp with its spectacular vantage point along the Shire River. Being so close to the river you will have prime viewing of hippos, Nile crocodiles, elephants and other wildlife that will come to the river to drink.  

Then stay at a villa at Pumulani Lodge on the southern edge of Lake Malawi.  Relax on the sandy beach or at the stylish infinity pool.  There are sensational diving and snorkeling opportunities in the freshwater lake and the chance to go water skiing, sailing and kayaking too.
