Malawi Safari and Beach Holiday

Inspirational safari & beach holiday to Malawi

A safari and beach that isn’t run of the mill.  Take in a safari in Malawi's Liwonde National Park and explore the islands of Lake Malawi.  Liwonde National Park straddles the banks of the Shire River and encompasses a wide range of habitats from quiet backwater lagoons and marshes to open savannah and wooded hills. Stay at Mvuu Camp where you can take a boat trip along the Shire River and admire the hippos up close, enjoy game drives or simply relax on your deck and watch the elephant frolic in the river. 

Then travel to Kaya Maya Lodge on Lake Malawi’s Likoma Island. Africa's third largest lake, Lake Malawi is home to the largest number of fish species in any lake in the world. Snorkel through crystal clear fresh water, enjoy motor sports and kayaking. You can do as little or as much as you want. The Wall Street Journal once described Kaya Mawa as ‘the most relaxing beach holiday in the least likely destination.
