Malawi

Overview

Landlocked between Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique, you will find one of Africa’s more discreet destinations, Malawi. Malawi safaris offer all things Africa; it has stood back whilst other safari destinations became consumed by tourism, and watch them suffer whilst it remained un-spoilt and true to itself. With a ‘chilled’ pace of life, Malawi has earned itself the title of ‘The Warm Heart of Africa’, and quite rightly so. The place, people, history, culture and the attractions combined make Malawi one of the most welcoming places in Africa.
