Superb safari and trekking holiday across Zambia and Malawi
This two week safari and trekking holiday offers a real journey of adventure and discovery through the heart of Africa's warmest nations - Malawi and Zambia. Famed for its serene savannahs and high wildlife populations we begin our adventure in Zambia's pristine South Luangwa National Park. With over sixty different animal species and four-hundred different bird species, South Luangwa is possibly one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in the world. From our comfortable waterside lodge we take a 4WD and spend several days exploring the vast and rich eco-systems in the company of our expert guide.
By day we attempt to seek out the famous Luangwa Leopards, prides of lions and vast herds of elephants and in the evenings, we may be lucky enough to spot hippo, antelope and other species of African wildlife gathering at the water's edge. Acclimatized to the pace of African life, we return to Malawi with a short stay at the Kuti wildlife reserve before heading south into the rich and luscious lands of the Mulanje Massif. From here we enjoy a fully supported, well-paced challenging 4-day trek to the highest point of the massif - Sapitwa (3002m). Our ascent follows villager's trails up onto the Mulanje Plateau and past spectacular waterfalls that lead onto the famous granite boulders of Mulanje. Often shrouded in a picturesque mist, Mulanje is aptly named the ‘Island of Sky' and is an achievable for those looking to discover a real hidden gem of great African walks. The summit day of Sapitwa involves some scrambling – this day is optional. Our grand finale to this adventure holiday, heads north to the heart of this friendly nation, Lake Malawi. Spending two nights on the tranquil shores of Lake Malawi's, we enjoy winding down at a relaxing hotel on paradise beaches.
