Travel to Malawi for its breath-taking nature

Malawi boasts a spectacular variety of landscapes with breath-taking views at short distances and is working hard to restore National Parks and Wildlife Reserves to its former glory. Sadly, in the past many Malawians were forced by poverty to illegally cut down trees for firewood and poach wildlife for its meat, but in recent years the situation in the country has improved tremendously and by working closely together with various partner organizations, the Malawi Department of National Parks and Wildlife can be proud of some great conservation achievements. Numbers of elephant, zebra, buffalo, leopard and many antelope species are continuously growing and since the reintroduction of lions and rhinos, Malawi is now again one of Africa’s Big 5 safari destinations. When you travel to Malawi, you directly support the conservation of local nature.

Enthusiastic birders (like ourselves!) should not forget to pack their binoculars and camera with about 650 different bird species in Malawi!

Lake Malawi is an obvious highlight and we know the best beaches. Besides relaxing and swimming, you can also go on a kayak adventure to one of the islands. There you’ll love to snorkel between the colourful cichlid fish for which Lake Malawi is famous.

Lake Malawi is one of our favorite places in Africa!

We are looking forward to meeting each other here in Malawi!
