Trip of a Lifetime

Lisa Ablett 1 week ago Read more

This was our second trip with Timbuktu and we came back with very high expectations after our first experience! Once again, everything was handled expertly from the smallest details to the most critical ones. Katie Fahrland was especially great (again) throughout planning our trip and her responsiveness to our questions/requests was exceptional.

Dubbed the friendliest country in Africa, Malawi is the perfect add on to any southern African safari. Perhaps a good relaxer at the end of a trip. Lake Malawi—one of the largest lakes on the continent—carves its way through the heart of the country, making up the southern end of the Great Rift Valley...
One can enjoy fresh water diving, snorkelling, fishing or kayaking along the crystal clear shores of this iconic lake. The dramatic peaks of Mt Mulanje and the Zomba Plateau make up Malawi's deep south, providing amazing hiking opportunities. Further north and you'll find the beauty of the Nyika Plateau, with its rolling grasslands. Find the perfect Malawi accommodation, then mix and match lodges to create a holiday that suits your style and budget.

With so much to do and see, planning a Malawi safari can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
