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.
