Malawi Tourism has done a great job over the last 18 months of promoting this fabulous destination, with a well funded and well thought out campaign. It focusses around the incredibly friendly and welcoming people, safari experiences and the natural beauty of Lake Malawi.
Malawi has been visited by overland trucks and volunteer tourists for years, but until recently it has been much more difficult for short-stay tourists to find tours that let them experience this fascinating country on either a private tour, or luxury group tour. This is starting to change as more and more locals look to tourism as an income. The lodges across Malawi may not be constructed out of top end luxury materials with designer finishes. However, what they do have is excellent service, isolated locations and beautiful relaxing views.
Malawi is also rapidly growing as a top safari destination. In 2012 the culmination of a multi-year mass relocation of animals had proven successful with Malawi now able to boast ‘Big 5’ game reserves again. This was further improved in 2017 when cheetah were successfully integrated back into the wild at Liwonde National Park, for the first time in decades. All of this combined with more frequent flights in and around Malawi mean that 2020 is the perfect year to experience everything this vibrant, colourful country has to offer.
Our 14 day tailor-made Malawi and Zambia private tour is popular as it visits outstanding national parks renowned for their great wildlife viewing. The pace of the tour is reasonable so whilst you fit in multiple destinations, you do have time to relax and rejuvenate as well.
