South Luangwa, Liwonde & Lake Malawi Wildlife

Safari Overview
“Travelling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” Ibn Battuta, Moroccan explorer, 1304 – 1368.

The two south-central African countries of Malawi and Zambia might not be the first names that pop into your mind when you think of classic African safaris, but these two landlocked countries and their natural riches will turn you into a storyteller of note! They rival any other destination on the continent when it comes to fauna and flora numbers and diversity, and trumps them on being much more relaxed, intimate and unique.

Join us for an unforgettable 13-day safari where we explore the absolute best that Malawi and Zambia have to offer. We will watch big game (including four of Africa’s Big Five) in world-renowned South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia, then marvel at the stunning riverfront landscape and diverse mammals and birds of Liwonde National Park in Malawi, before going on to relax, kayak or snorkel at our very own island in beautiful Lake Malawi. Come and join us!
