What's 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.

Land & Lake excursions have been designed with the utmost care to give you an all-round experience of Malawi. 

We limit our Scheduled Tour group size to just 12 guests - this means you aren't lost in a crowd and you can have the time, attention and voice to make your journey just how you'd like it. 

We don't send you off with just a driver either, you are led by an experienced, knowledgeable and qualified Malawian guide who really knows the ins and outs to our little home.
