Mbuna Cichlid Safari

Mbuna Cichlid Safari

This Malawi safari holiday visits a couple of the country’s most remote highlights. It’s first stop is the rolling hills and mountain outcrops of the Nyika Plateau for a 3-night stay, before continuing on to the idyllic western shore of Lake Malawi.

The lodges are run by Central African Wilderness Safaris, an operator with high quality camps in Malawi. They have lovely accommodation, service, food, and a wide range of activities available.

The transfer from Lilongwe to Chelinda is based on a flight transfer and the rest of the transfers on this itinerary will be done by road – allowing you to get a feel for the ‘real’ Malawi, passing though towns, villages and farmland. You always have the option to stop if you fancy a refreshing cool drink in a local café, or perhaps you have seen a market you’d like to have a potter around.
