Are you looking for an unforgettable African safari holiday in Malawi?
Malawi is a country that is often overlooked by tourists in favour of its more famous neighbours, Tanzania, Kenya, Zambia and even Mozambique.
Malawi offers tourists a very different experience to East Africa, with its vast Lake Malawi taking centre stage. With plenty of lake and water activities on offer, including kayaking, snorkelling, fishing and sailing, Malawi makes for an idyllic beach holiday destination even though it is nowhere near an ocean of any kind.
This small country's huge variety of ecosystems produces stunning safari destinations, from the "Scottish" highlands of the Nyika plateau to the tropical water-bound Liwonde National Park in the south of the country. For avid wildlife and birdlife explorers, Malawi will not disappoint. Although national parks and games reserves are small in size, the numbers of wildlife, especially birdlife, are spectacular.
Malawi's marketing or "tag line" is the "Warm heart of Africa." For once, this is not hyperbole. You could not wish for a more friendly, safe and relaxed African safari destination.
Travelling within Malawi is a favourite amongst the Uyaphi team, and any of the below safari itinerary options is recommended for novices or experienced African travellers.
