Malawi Safaris and Holidays

Billed as ‘the warm heart of Africa’, Malawi is a real nature lover’s destination. Malawi safaris and holidays give the traveller access to the national parks, Cape Maclear, Kasungu, Lengwe, Liwonde and Nyika and some very game rich reserves lend themselves to excellent tours and combine perfectly with mountain hiking and horse riding.

Bordered by Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania, this stunning little country nestles snugly into the contours of the Great African Rift and has an amazing variety of scenery, culture and people, as well as a sub-tropical climate.

In the south lies Mount Mulanje which at 3,048 metres is the highest mountain in Central Africa. The mountain and its surrounding rolling tea fields of the Thyolo region provide some of the continent’s finest hiking.

At nearby Liwonde National Park, the bird count is over 400 and the impressive elephant herds are viewed from stout wooden boats on the Shire River that ply the same route that Dr Livingstone took to Lake Malawi in the 1850s.

Lake Malawi, the third largest lake in Africa set in the Great Rift Valley, which runs through the country from north to south, is great for diving, boating or simply relaxing. The lake offers culture, history, relaxation and vigorous activity in equal measure.

Mumbo Island off the Cape Maclear Peninsula has one of the most pristine wilderness settings imaginable, while Likoma Island is the most remote outpost of the Malawi nation.

In the far north, the Nyika Plateau grasslands sit at an altitude of almost 2,500 metres. Home to large herds of eland, zebra and Roan antelope the plateau is one of the planet’s most dramatic and mysterious landscapes. It is possible to swim in tropical heat in Lake Malawi and be warming yourself in front of a scented wood fire on the Nyika less than an hour later.

Due to the compactness of Malawi and reliable transport that is on offer exploring this gem of a country is relatively easy. A tailor-made holiday will enable travellers to make the most of all the delights across this diminutive gem. Malawi is a wonderful destination in its own right but it also combines extremely well with a luxury African safari in Zambia.
