Client Rating for Malawi 5/5 from 10 reviews

Another not-to-be-missed place to stay, with drives through wonderful scenery and seeing very special animals, as well as some colourful flowers just emerging after the annual burning of about half of the grassland area - for firebreak and conservation purposes. Frosty mornings but evening log fires, including in the beautiful and spacious log cabins, and plentiful hot water - as well as excellent food - made the stay very comfortable. Larger groups are allocated to a guide, who helps them plan their activities during their stay and these can include whole day drives to about 3 different destinations. As a sole traveller, I didn't get the option to do the longer drives but was happy to join in any other drives available.
