Your tailor-made safari & beach holiday to Malawi

Mumbo Island in Lake Malawi Hiking 2 Mvuu

This wonderful itinerary takes you from the foothills of Mulanje Mountain to the 'Lake of Stars' stopping in-between to enjoy the peaks of Zomba and incredible game viewing at Liwonde National Park. Enjoy sunny days in Mulanje climbing the mountain, splashing in the rock pools or taking part in a tea tour. Mulanje offers incredible scenery and activities for everyone. After Mulanje you'll continue to Zomba Mountain, a truly different experience to Mulanje. During a walk on Zomba you could be forgiven for mistaking the lush plantation for a rain forest. Enjoy stunning views from your terrace at Ku Chawe Inn or venture out on horseback to look at Chagwa dam. After your time in Zomba you'll head to Liwonde National Park where you can take part in game drives, walks or boat safaris down Mvuu River. End your stay with three nights at Lake Malawi. The Lake offers fresh water swimming with a plethora of cichlids to enjoy underwater. Have fun snorkelling or walking along the stunning shoreline.
