Combine a beach holiday & Safari

Served by travel hubs Johannesburg and Nairobi, Malawi is a destination that is usually part of a bigger African travel itinerary. Travellers often combine a beach holiday on Lake Malawi with a safari to the Masai Mara/Serengeti, Botswana or the Kruger. If you have specific experiences you want to include – hiking Kilimanjaro, gorilla trekking, or Cape Town and Table Mountain – then tell us about it and we’ll plan it for you.

The easiest ‘Safari and Malawi’ combination is with Zambia, giving you access to some of the best game parks in Africa as well as Victoria Falls.

Zambia

Home to world-famous walking safaris, neighbouring Zambia offers excellent game viewing. The Lower Zambezi and South Luangwa national parks are renowned for their heavyweight species – elephant, buffalo, giraffe and hippo – as well as predators. You’ll enjoy game drives, walks, canoe safaris and sunset cruises.

Victoria Falls

It’s easy to add a day or two at Victoria Falls and then finish off with a beach holiday in Malawi. Sharing a border makes connecting Malawi and Zambia a matter of a short scheduled flight.

South Africa

Kruger & the Sabi Sand deliver amazing Big 5 sightings while Cape Town offers a complete contrast. You can hike Table Mountain, enjoy a wine tour & meet the penguins at Boulders Beach. There is seasonal whale watching, shark-cage diving & opportunities for self-drive adventures.
