what’s it all about

Ntchisi Cooking
Zomba Plateau

Malawi is located at the bottom of the Great Rift Valley and boasts some of Africa’s most diverse landscape. This 2 week expedition takes in mountains, plateaus, rainforests and includes time spent with local communities, schools and to the shores of the magnificent Lake Malawi.

This behind the scenes adventure is a chance to see a different side to Africa. A chance to combine the highlights of wildlife and scenery with cultural exchange, skills sharing and off the beaten track experiences. Your local Malawian guide will host your group as you journey from southern Malawi, and the rolling tea estates, to the peaks of Mulanje Mountain, shores of Lake Malawi and end at Malawi’s last remaining rain forest deep in the heart of rural central Malawi. A Geographers dream!
