You want to relax beach side but also want to thrive in the African bush experience? Then Malawi is the perfect spot for you. This ‘off-the-beaten-track’ itinerary will combine the hearty Malawi bush as well as the lapping up the shores. And all mixed in with luxurious accommodation – we won’t blame you for not wanting to make that return flight.
Depart London Heathrow on your overnight flight to Addis Abba.
Arrive in Addis Abba and connect with your flight to Blantyre. On arrival, you be transferred by road to the Majete Wildlife Reserve to stay for four nights on safari at the Mkulumadzi Lodge, where game drives, boating safaris, bush walks, black rhino tracking and cultural tours are all available. The perfect combination of luxury and isolation, Mkulumadzi boasts eight superb chalets set on the banks of the Shire River, shaded by giant leadwood trees and wild mangos. Each chalet has a spacious bedroom and lounge, en suite bathroom, outdoor shower and private viewing deck where guests can sit back and marvel at the sights and sounds of the river.
Transfer to Lake Malawi to stay for five nights on the shores of Lake Malawi at the luxurious Pumulani Lodge. Hidden away amongst trees and creeping out from the rocks, the lodge is a design dream with every villa having glorious views across the lake. Each of the ten villas is uniquely designed, with some incorporating the rocks that rush from the ground, and others incorporating the foliage growing around them. All have huge terraces, verandahs or decks plus spacious living, sleeping and bathing quarters.
Today, you will be transferred by road to Lilongwe for your overnight flight to London Heathrow via Addis Abba
