What's so great about these 21 Days?
What isn't? You travel the length of Malawi in a winding and relaxing figure of 8. You get the best out of both Malawi and Zambian wilderness, add the great expanse of Lake Malawi, and overlook the lofty peaks of some of Malawi's premier plateaus.
This tour is a balanced and perfect combination of culture, history, wildlife, beach and a mixture of activities. It's a tour to tickle the sense and suit everyone interest, no matter your background or age!
Additionally it suits keen birders, hikers and scuba divers.
It suits those looking to just kick their feet up and enjoy the view whilst it keeps those wanting to really sink into the traditional culture busy.
