21 Days in Malawi & Zambia
Where wild meets life - Take the complete journey with us as we travel across the length of Malawi and then zip into Zambia for an unforgettable safari and the adventure capital of Africa!
Day 1: Meet in Mulanje, Transfer options available from Lilongwe & Blantyre! It's the climb - We make our way to the first mountain hut to take as much of this stunning scenery as we can.
Day 2: Optional hike up to the peak of Mulanje - Others can potter around the mountain, and we try out a different hut for the night!
Day 3: Back down the mountain we go and it's a short drive to Liwonde National Park for a spot of Safari! En-route though we have a few highlights!
Day 4: Eat, Sleep, Safari! Our favourite! Game drives, boat safaris and walking safaris are all on offer here.
Day 5: On the road again, we hit up some epic historical faves en route to your own little island - Catch a boat across and relax on the shores of Lake Malawi.
Day 6: A day in paradise, Scuba diving, swimming, kayaking, hiking, boating and more all up for grabs here. And for the more luxurious traveller - Upgrade your stay to an en-suite lake view chalet!
Day 7: Continuing North we find ourselves in Nkhotakhota Wildlife Reserve where we soak up the mountain wilderness vibe.
Day 8: This is the day we find ourselves on horseback riding along the beach and through fresh water waves. Horse riding scare you? That's fine, you can feed one a carrot and do something else instead!
Day 9 & 10: We settle for two nights on the northern lakeshore, soaking up sun and exploring this hip happening area.
Day 11 & 12: Off to Livingstonia we go - It's historical, laid back, adventurous and the views are incredible!
Day 13: Our last night in Malawi - and what a celebration it will be.
Day 14: Make our way across the border and on to South Luangwa National Park!
Day 15 & 16: Game drives in South Luangwa National Park, relaxing in the afternoon on the banks of the Luangwa River and maybe doing a spot of shopping at the incredible projects in the area!
Day 17: It's a long drive and a picnic en-route to Lusaka, overnight in the big city - Hit the town or chill out!
Day 18: Another stretch down to Livingstone and the feet up with the view of Victoria Falls mist in the distance.
Day 19 & 20: GO WILD! This is the adventure Capital of Africa after all - Micro-lighting, Bungee Jumping, Gorge Swings, you name it! Do a falls visit with our guide and then book and pay for your activities at the adventure centre at your lodge.
Day 21: Our vehicle heads back - Jump on board back to Lusaka or Lilongwe and cover your accommodation back or stay on in Livingstone - We can help you plan your next movements.

Feel the freedom of taking a tour at your own pace
Your visas for Malawi and Zambia aren't included and neither is transport down to Mulanje or return from Livingstone - We can help with the Mulanje and return bit but do be sure you sort what visa you need when - Let us know if you're unsure!

See you soon!
