What's so great about these 15 days?
This is where you sink with ease into the Malawian way of life, gentle hiking and incredible scenery, tasting Malawian cuisine and the popular tea grown in Thyolo. Heading up to Cape Maclear you have the opportunity to witness the best sunsets Malawi has to offer, mix that with kayaking, swimming and snorkelling and you have the ultimate beach excursion. Following the famous Lake of Stars north we visit the famous Nkhotakhota Wildlife reserve to try and see the elephants transported in the largest wildlife relocation from Liwonde and Majete.
The tip of the iceberg is the rolling hills of Nyika Plateau, the great expanse of open plains mixed with dense forest patches and littered with Eland, Hyena, bush pig and more.
