Travel Options around Malawi

Malawi is a very safe country to travel around - Here are some options for your visit.

Go it by foot or rent a bike - Walking and biking around Malawi is a great way to see the country and Land and Lake can support you on that journey. 

Rent a car - Self driving is safe and an enjoyable method of getting around, roads are all easily accessible and you're never too remote that someone can't help you if need be.

Get guided - Not keen on self-driving? no worries, rather than a taxi, take a guide who'll take you to hidden spots and be able to help you with any questions on your journey.

Go local - We often don't recommend this if you are a group or need to stick to a schedule for reliability purposes. local minibuses, the train and the Ilala can be a slower method and sometimes don't get you to where you need to be on time. But if you're alone, or some friends and fancy a cheaper way to see Malawi and get to know the people that love here, this is a good choice.

Fly - Malawi is home to a number of smaller lodge owned runways - skip the crowds, travel light and get to where you want to go by scheduled or private plane.

Travel Options in Zambia

Very similar to Malawi - though don't forget Zambia is a lot larger and more remote. some local transport doesnt go to the remote areas and there a few more limited airstrips to fly from place to place. 

most times of the year require 4x4 vehicles to get to remote destinations so car hire or taking a guide is sometimes the best bet. 

Additionally a mixture is good too, transfers, car hire, flights and local transport combined can give you a taste of everything.
