10 days from £1895pp plus international flights.
This is a classic mix of safari and beach, combining busy days wildlife spotting in Liwonde National Park with time to chill on the shores of Lake Malawi. This is a 10-day gem of a holiday to this beautiful country.
Malawi is small and you'll travel by road, allowing you to view varied scenery and catch a glimpse of village life. Once at each destination you'll have plenty of time to settle in, with 4 nights at your safari camp and 5 nights by the lake. Accommodation is comfortable rather than luxurious, and the friendly service and smiling faces of the staff will soon make you feel right at home. Both are child-friendly and this is an excellent family holiday.
Safari activities are varied, with a choice of 4x4 game drives, night drives, boat trips and guided walks all led by experienced guides. There's just as much to choose from at Lake Malawi, including all manner of watersports, mountain biking, hiking, village visits and simply relaxing.
