Malawi Tours and Safaris
Take a lakeside trip like none you've ever experienced - in the "warm heart of Africa." Having earned its nickname not for location or climate, but for the friendliness of its people, landlocked Malawi comes as a welcome surprise to many travelers. Stretched along its eastern border lies long, narrow Lake Malawi, a deep Rift Valley lake rimmed with rolling hills and tropical vegetation. Dotted with sandy beaches, hidden coves and wooded islands, filled with unique tropical freshwater fish, the lake makes for an idyllic water sports destination, including superb lake diving. Balancing this Waterworld are Malawi's dramatic plateau game parks filled with skittish zebra, and the highlands around 3000m Mt Mulanje, rising from tea plantations and spotted with mountain streams tumbling into steep mountain gorges.
Nairobi to Joburg Overland (DKBJ)
Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, Kruger National Park, Lake Malawi, Zanzibar, Victoria Falls—we originally called this trip ‘Africa Complete,’ but those pesky lawyers made us change it. While it may not feature all of Africa, it’s still pretty darn close: Wildlife safaris, cultural contact, rugged landscapes and natural landmarks spread across six incredible countries. And with supremely knowledgeable CEOs, meals prepared from fresh local produce and starlit camping stays, you’ll gain a kinship with this land and its people you won’t find anywhere else.
Highlights: Spot the Big Five from 4x4 safari vehicles, inhale the aromas of a spice plantation, snorkel Zanzibar's waters, gaze out across Victoria Falls, spot wildlife in Kruger National Park, discover the less-visited Zimbabwe, walk in search of rhinos in Matobo National Park.
