Malawi and Zambia Wildlife

Safari Overview
“The only man I envy is the man who has not yet been to Africa, for he has so much to look forward to”. Richard Mullin.

Malawi and Zambia might not be the first names that pop into your mind when you think of classic African big game safaris, but these two landlocked countries 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 12 day safari where we explore the best that Malawi and Zambia has to offer. Malawi‘s breathtaking scenery, friendly people and incredible wildlife and birding reserves makes it one of the top African destinations for any wildlife enthusiast. South Luangwa National Park in eastern Zambia, is a world-renowned wildlife haven which supports large populations of game such as four of Africa’s Big Five, African Wild Dog, Hippopotamus, Thornicroft’s Giraffe and over 400 recorded bird species.
