South Luangwa National Park – Kande Beach, Malawi
You can relax around the pools edge on the hotter hours of the day and in the afternoon we enjoy an open air game drive along the river’s edge where you will see the variety of bird and animal life in the area. The tour includes a guided game drive during our stay. Additional excursion such as walks and drives can be booked upon arrival.
Following our last night in Zambia we head across the border to Malawi, making a stop in the capital of Lilongwe before taking the eastern road toward Lake Malawi. Formally known as ‘Lake Nyasa’, Lake Malawi covers almost an entire fifth of the country’s area, providing a strong root of livelihood for most of the local Malawi folk. Fishermen, fish traders, and canoe and net makers all practice their trades here, and a typical sight is that of a fisherman in his Bwato (dugout canoe made from a hollowed out tree trunk) fishing on the still lake at the break of dawn. The Lake is something of a marvel to visitors, and has the highest number of endemic freshwater fish species in the world. We arrive at our accommodation, situated on the lake’s shore, in the afternoon and we have the rest of the day to ourselves. Feel free to spend this time indulging in a relaxing swim or exploring the beach and surrounding areas.
Please note: Although it is our intention to adhere to the accommodation described, a certain amount of flexibility is built into our time in Malawi and the crew may make alterations to the published itinerary. Please therefore treat the Malawi section of the dossier as a guideline only.
