Depart from Lilongwe and head to Zomba Plateau. Stop at the interesting colonial town of Zomba, the former capital of Malawi. Visit the colourful and busy markets to buy our fresh supplies for the next few days. Afterwards, head on to the plateau where we set up camp amongst the tall pine trees. Relax in the evening at the camp or have a sundowner at the nearby beautiful Ku Chawe Inn. Dinner is served around the campfire.
Spend the morning on the Zomba Plateau, one of the most popular areas in Malawi for walking and hiking. Go for a hike and see one of the many waterfalls and stunning viewpoints on the plateau. Late in the morning, depart to Liwonde National Park, the best game park in Malawi. Stop on the way at some superb local craft stables. If possible, after setting up camp we enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Mvuu Campsite. Spend the rest of the day in the camp or take an optional night drive. Enjoy dinner accompanied by the mysterious wildlife sounds of the national park.
In the morning, go for a boat cruise on the Shire River. This is a unique way to view the animal activity of the park.
After the boat cruise, we depart to Cape Maclear. On arrival, we set up our camp on the tropical white beaches of Lake Malawi and prepare lunch. Spend the afternoon relaxing, swimming or snorkelling in the lake or visit the nearby islands in a local dugout canoe. Options also include joining a Kayak Africa Expedition to the exclusive treasure island of Mumbo where you can spend the evening before returning to camp the following day. For those staying at the main shores, dinner will be served at the camp along the beach.
After a relaxing morning, return back to Lilongwe. Stop along the way to barter for goods at a local crafts market. Arrive in Lilongwe in the late afternoon.
