Easter Safari

Cape Maclear, Lilongwe & SOUTH LUANGWA

Visit Africa this Easter and explore Lake Malawi, Liwonde and South Luangwa. You’ll begin your trip at the lake, where you can spend your days relaxing on the beach (and at the bar) or, if sunbathing isn’t for you, you can take to the water; kayak around the islands, snorkel, or try your hand at wakeboarding. Cape Maclear is a truly excellent destination where there really is something for everyone. Whilst at the lake you will also stay at Mumbo Island  – Mumbo Island offers an exclusive escape on an otherwise deserted island. 

After 4 nights at the lake, it’s time to visit Malawi’s most loved park; Liwonde. Following 2 nights in the bush, we head back to the lake, this time to Mumbo Island. You will spend 2 nights on Mumbo then head for the South Luangwa. South Luangwa is an awe-inspiring safari destination. It is home to big (and small) cats, over 400 bird species, indigenous Zebra, an abundance of Elephant as well as 50+ other animal species! You will stay at Chichele Presidential Lodge, a grand colonial style lodge with beautiful rooms and stunning views of open plains.
