Red Zebra Cichlid Safari: In full
This safari holiday to Malawi takes its time to explore two of the country’s highlights. It first visits the rugged, remote Majete Wildlife Reserve for a 3-night safari, then it continues to a lovely beach lodge within Lake Malawi National Park.
Both of these are top-notch lodges with high standards of accommodation, food and service and both are run by Robin Pope Safaris, who also run a handful of the top safari lodges in Zambia’s South Luangwa National Park.
On this tour, the transfers between these lodges are done by 4WD, which adds an extra dimension to this trip – allowing you a view of ‘the real’ Malawi: its towns, rural areas and people. There’s always the chance to stop occasionally – for an interesting market or even just a soft drink at a local shop.
You’ll head out to explore Majete with Mkulumadzi’s experienced wildlife guides, and the more common game species here include nyala, bushbuck, zebra, kudu, waterbuck, eland, warthog and impala. Elephant and buffalo are often sighted, whilst leopard, lion and black rhino are much more elusive.
Day 8Today you will bid goodbye to Pumulani after breakfast, before being driven through the edges of Lilongwe, to Lilongwe Airport. There you will connect onto a South African Airways flight back to Johannesburg, and from there back to London, arriving early the following morning.
