Welcome to Malawi


Suspended in the clouds in Malawi’s deep south are the dramatic peaks of Mt Mulanje and the mysterious Zomba Plateau, both a hiker's dream, with mist-cowled forests and exotic wildlife. Further north is the otherworldly beauty of the Nyika Plateau, its rolling grasslands resembling the Scottish Highlands.

Malawi was once dismissed as a safari destination, but all that changed with a lion-reintroduction program at Majete Wildlife Reserve, which is now one of a few worthwhile wildlife-watching destinations nationwide.

ItineraryDay 1: Pretoria - Hazyview - Greater KrugerStop At: Hotel Numbi & Garden SuitesFrom Pretoria - South Africa’s administrative city - we travel via the panoramic region of Mpumalanga with its beautiful scenery and dramatic escarpment views, to South Africa’s famed national park – Kruger. Fences between the National Park and surrounding private reserves were removed several years ago to form the Greater Kruger, an area of some 24000 sq km. Wildlife is free to roam the whole enormous area and it has become incredibly diverse in both fauna and flora. From the dwarf mongoose to the famed ‘Big Five’, almost every major African mammal (148 species) is present. There is also prolific birdlife (over 505 species) and over 330 varieties of trees. This evening we enjoy Shangaan tribal dancing and singing around an open fire.

The reserve has the largest concentration of Black and White Rhino in Africa and, provided conditions are right, our guides will lead us on foot to some of the more concealed places in search of these magnificent animals. The park also has the densest population of leopard and black eagle in the world and we keep our eyes peeled high and low for these creatures. The hills are also home to the grave site of Cecil John Rhodes who chose this as his burial place owing to the intense natural beauty and startling views from the hills. His grave can be visited at World’s View - a place of continual debate owing to his involvement in claiming the land and its people for Queen & Country in colonial times.

Staff will give a full briefing on what can be booked (typically including rafting, canoeing, bungee, abseiling, gorge swinging, horse riding, scenic flights and river cruises). Choose your activity at leisure, if time allows or else simply relax and enjoy the mighty Zambezi as it flows past your vantage point.

Lake Malawi formerly ‘Lake Nyasa’, covers almost a fifth of the country’s area and provides the source of livelihood for many of the Malawian people. Fishermen, fish traders, canoe and net makers all ply their trade, and a common sight is that of a fisherman in his Bwato, (dugout canoe made from hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the lake at the break of day or with lanterns by nightThe lake also has the highest number of endemic freshwater fish species of any in the world and attracts divers globally to seek out the many colourful Cichlid species.

Expect to see Elephant, hippo, crocodiles, antelope and with some luck some buffalo or lion.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Tan-Swiss, Mikumi, TanzaniaDay 18: Mikumi National Park area – Dar es SalaamStop At: Kipepeo, Dar es Salaam, Dar Es Salaam RegionWe continue towards the Indian Ocean coast and the port city of Dar es Salaam (‘Haven of Peace’). This route runs through the Mikumi National Park and we may, with luck, spot forest elephant or giraffe feeding near the side of the road. ‘Dar’ is Tanzania’s hub of commerce and industry – a hot, humid and bustling seaport city of high rises, colourful markets and Arab influenced architecture on the coast accessing one of the most important sea routes on earth (with an interesting history too). To a majority of travellers, this city is the port of call to the more exotic Zanzibar and the remaining of the Archipelago islands. We set up camp at our campsite on the beach just outside of the city centre, usually having time to browse curio markets - best known for ebony wood - and prepare for our trip to Zanzibar.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Kipepeo Beach, Dar es Salaam, TanzaniaDay 19: Zanzibar IslandStop At: Stone Town, Zanzibar City, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar ArchipelagoEvocative and exotic, Zanzibar conjures up images of idyllic, sandy, palm fringe beaches; romantic winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests. You will find all of these here – and an intriguing history. Zanzibar was the base of the great 19th century explorers such as John Hanning Speke, Richard Burton and David Livingstone and once was a major trading centre of spices. Indeed, the spice trade is centuries old: Zanzibaris have traded with the people of the Arabian Peninsula for generations, plying the ocean in simple dhow sailboats relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town. This influence can be seen right along the Eastern coast – the Swahili language itself is a result of the mixing of Arab and African languages and cultures over many centuries.Zanzibar’s other history is not romantic. The island was also a staging post for slaves bought from the African interior being held before shipping to slave owners in the Middle East. You can still see the places where these men and woman were held – and even a short visit is enough to convey the appalling conditions they had to endure.Our time on the island over the next 4 nights is not structured and your time is at leisure. Perhaps the best way to see Stone Town is on foot: explore the bazaars for old maritime trinkets, cloths, wooden carvings, visit mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways of the old town. Spices are grown in plantations nearby and you can take day tours to visit some and have your senses dazzled by the tastes and scents experienced. If it’s white sand, sparkling ocean and hot sun you prefer – head to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best. Try snorkelling and diving, indulge in some sumptuous seafood, or simply relax beneath a coconut palm with a cocktail and a good book. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at Safari Lodge, Stone TownDay 20: Zanzibar IslandStop At: Beach Front KendwaEnjoy free time on Zanzibar and transfer to the northern beaches from Stone Town. Relax on the sun kissed beaches of Kendwa, northwest part of the island, take an optional diving trip to the rich colourful reefs or grab a snorkel and goggles to explore these from aboveDuration: 1 dayMeals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at Sunset Bungalows, Kendwa, ZanzibarDay 21: Zanzibar IslandStop At: Kendwa Beach, Kendwa, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar ArchipelagoBrowse markets or enjoy hanging in a hammock with a cocktail and a good book. The beach is a great place to catch up with the locals who will pass by selling their wares, offering henna tattoos and inexpensive massages. Round the day off with a sunset dhow cruise or chilling to the tunes from the nearby beach bars.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at Sunset Bungalows, Kendwa, ZanzibarDay 22: Zanzibar IslandStop At: Kendwa Beach, Kendwa, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar ArchipelagoAdjusting to the lazy ways of the northern beaches is easy to do in such picturesque surroundings.

Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • BreakfastAccommodation included: Overnight at Sunset Bungalows, Kendwa, ZanzibarDay 23: Zanzibar – Dar es SalaamStop At: Kipepeo Beach VillageWe have the morning to do any last-minute shopping or enjoy one last swim before catching the ferry back to the African mainland to Dar es Salaam and onwards to our campsite on the coast where our tour ends.

24-Day South East Adventure Accommodated Overland Tour from Nairobi

ItineraryDay 1: Nairobi – Maasai Mara Reserve, KenyaStop At: Maasai Mara National Reserve Kenya, Narok, Rift Valley ProvinceWe depart the city early and make our way across the Great Rift Valley to the Maasai Mara National Reserve, enjoying views of the vast vista en route. We travel in small specialized safari vehicles that enable us to have a more intimate view of wildlife. We spend two nights camping on the edge of the Reserve with time to explore the park on morning and afternoon game drives. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Enkalong Camp, Masai Mara area, KenyaDay 2: Maasai Mara Reserve, KenyaStop At: Masai Mara National ReserveWe have the day to explore the Reserve in search for wildlife including the ‘big 5’ – lion, rhino, elephant, buffalo and leopard. The sweeping plains, distant horizons, low slung acacia trees, and plentiful wildlife ensure a deeply evocative few days. The ‘Mara’ is crossed every year between July and October by great herds of wildebeest, zebra and other grazing animals in their migration from the adjoining Serengeti plains to the south (in Tanzania). How long they stay is dependent on rainfall and subsequent grass growth in the rainy season. Predators (such as lion, cheetah, leopard) and scavengers (hyena, vultures) follow the grazing animals and this enormous congregation of wildlife forms a spectacular display of Africa’s natural resource. But the Mara is excellent for game viewing at any time of year and regardless of when you can visit we hope to see some, if not all, of Africa’s ‘Big Five’ (elephant, lion, rhino, buffalo and leopard) and an array of other wildlife.We stop for a lunch before returning to our tented camp for the evening. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Enkalong Camp, Masai Mara area, KenyaDay 3: Maasai Mara Reserve - Nairobi Stop At: Karen CampFrom the Mara we make our way back across the Great Rift Valley to Nairobi, where we overnight.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Karen Camp, Karen, Nairobi, KenyaDay 4: Nairobi – Arusha, TanzaniaStop At: Meserani Snake Park, Arusha, Arusha RegionAfter crossing the border into Tanzania at the busy Namanga frontier we arrive at our destination, Arusha, in the late afternoon. Situated mid-way between Cape Town and Cairo, this is very much Tanzania’s ‘safari capital’ - a bustling city with colourful markets, shops, vehicles and people, all nestling in the shadow of the brooding Mt Meru (4556m). After exploring the curio markets, we head to our accommodation just outside Arusha on the open plains to the west of the city. It is from here that we prepare for our two night/three-day excursion to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.This afternoon, if time allows, we enjoy a walk to one of the local Maasai villages to enjoy an insight into everyday life and traditions of this colourful culture. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Meserani Snake Park, Arusha, TanzaniaDay 5: Arusha - Serengeti National Park Stop At: Serengeti National Park, Serengeti National ParkThis morning we transfer to smaller, more ‘game park friendly’ vehicles and drive west across the Great Rift Valley, passing through Mto Wa Mbo (‘mosquito creek’) and enter the Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area. We enter the park and drive around the ‘Crater’s rim and down onto the Serengeti plains. Green after the rains, brown and burnt in the dry, this is home to an enormous variety of grazing animals, predators, and birdlife. Flatter and larger than the Maasai Mara the Serengeti is simply huge - indeed the name derives from the Maasai word Siringitu – ‘the place where the land moves on forever’. We game drive to our designated (but unfenced) campsite for the evening where lion and hyena roam nearby, for an unforgettable experience. Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Serengeti Bush Camp, Serengeti National Park, TanzaniaDay 6: Ngorongoro CraterStop At: Ngorongoro Crater, Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Arusha RegionWe drive out of the plains, game driving en route, and after lunch ascend the outer wall of the Ngorongoro Crater. We spend the night camping on the rim (you may need a jacket; it can be cold at night due to the altitude), where wildlife also roams free. At 326 square kilometres, the Ngorongoro is Africa’s largest intact caldera and a World Heritage Site. If the view from the rim (2400 metres above sea level) is spectacular, the site from the Crater floor (some 600 metres below) is equally enjoyable.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Simba Camp, Ngorongoro Crater Conservation Area, TanzaniaDay 7: Ngorongoro Crater - Arusha, Meserani Snake ParkStop At: Meserani Snake Park, Arusha, Arusha RegionWe wake early and descend the steep dirt road of the Ngorongoro Crater for a morning of game driving in this spectacular wildlife haven. All of the large mammals are present except giraffe (which cannot manage the steep slopes leading down onto the Crater floor). After our game drive we ascend to our campsite on the rim for a final view over the Ngorongoro Crater, pack up our camp and have lunch before retracing our steps to Arusha and our accommodation at the Meserani Snake Park.Duration: 1 dayMeals included: • Breakfast • Lunch • DinnerAccommodation included: Overnight at Meserani Snake Park, Arusha, TanzaniaDay 8: Arusha – BagamoyoStop At: Firefly BagamoyoThis morning we wake early and head south via Moshi to Bagamoyo.

22-Day Zanzibar Vic Falls & Kruger Accommodated Overland Tour from Dar es Salaam

ItineraryDay 1: Dar es Salaam - Zanzibar IslandStop At: Mazson's HotelEvocative and exotic, Zanzibar conjures up images of idyllic, sandy, palm fringed beaches; romantic winding cobbled alleys and lush tropical forests. You will find all of these here – and an intriguing history. Zanzibar was the base of the great 19th century explorers such as John Hanning Speke, Richard Burton and David Livingstone and once was a major trading centre of spices. Indeed, the spice trade here is centuries old: Zanzibaris have traded with the people of the Arabian Peninsula for many generations, navigating the ocean in simple dhow sailboats, relying on the annual trade winds for passage. The Arab influence is evident in the architecture and diverse street stall offerings of the capital, Stone Town. This influence can be seen right along the Eastern coast – the Swahili language itself is a result of the mixing of Arab and African languages and cultures over many centuries.Zanzibar’s other history is not so romantic. The island was also a staging post for slaves bought from the African interior, being held before shipping to slave owners in the Middle East. You can still see the places where these men and woman were held – and even a short visit is enough to convey the appalling conditions they had to endure.Our time on the island over the next 3 nights is not structured and your time is at leisure. Perhaps the best way to see Stone Town is on foot: explore the bazaars for old maritime trinkets, fabrics and wooden carvings, or visit mosques, palaces, courtyards and alleyways of the old town. Spices are grown in plantations nearby and you can take day tours to visit some and have your senses dazzled by the tastes and scents experienced. If it’s white sand, sparkling ocean and hot sun you prefer – head to the northern beaches and enjoy the Indian Ocean at its best. Try snorkeling and diving, indulge in some sumptuous seafood, or simply relax beneath a coconut palm with a cocktail and a good book.Duration: 1 dayNo meals included on this day.Accommodation included: Overnight at Mazsons Hotel, Stone Town, ZanzibarDay 2: Zanzibar IslandStop At: Kendwa Beach, Kendwa, Zanzibar Island, Zanzibar ArchipelagoEnjoy free time on Zanzibar and transfer to the northern beaches from Stone Town.

Fishermen, fish traders, canoe and net makers all ply their trade, and a common sight is that of a fisherman in his Bwato, (dugout canoe made from hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the lake at the break of day.
