Tour Plan

Day 1-2 Welcome to Malawi

Upon your arrival in Malawi, your guide will extend a warm welcome and accompany you on a private transfer southwest of Blantyre to Fisherman's Rest. Nestled on a sprawling 500-acre oasis in the Great Rift Valley, this family-operated nature reserve has been an integral part of the community since 1997. The accommodations are cozy, and guests can relish a pool offering breathtaking views of the valley.

At Fisherman's Rest, the mission is centered on enhancing education, economic opportunities, and overall quality of life in the surrounding areas. Guests have the opportunity to engage in various projects such as tree planting, repairing water pumps, or assisting in classroom construction.

You'll spend the next two nights here, with the specific project to be undertaken determined by the current needs of the community.

Day 03 Transfer to Mulanje

After waking up refreshed from a leisurely morning and enjoying breakfast, you'll be picked up for your private transfer to Mulanje, a journey that typically takes about 2 hours. Nestled on the slopes of Mount Mulanje, Likhubula Lodge is a charming old colonial property known for its inviting atmosphere and warm hospitality. It serves as an ideal overnight stop before embarking on a 3-day trek up the mountain.

This afternoon, you might opt for a short stroll to the nearby waterfall or simply relax to conserve your energy. Later, indulge in a delicious home-cooked dinner and treat yourself to a cold sundowner on the balcony overlooking the lush tea plantations, before settling in for a restful night.

Day 04-06 Hike the ancient "island in the sky"

Following a hearty breakfast at Likhubula Lodge, you'll embark on a four-day trek spanning 46 kilometers. Along the way, you'll traverse tunnels, meander under waterfalls, take refreshing dips in mountain streams, and revel in the stunning vistas of southern Malawi. This mountain is nestled within the protected Mulanje Mountain Forest Reserve, overseen by the Malawi Mountain Club and Forestry Department.

Accommodation throughout the hike will be in rustic mountain huts devoid of electricity, allowing you to reconnect with nature. Meals will be prepared over open fires, and evenings will be illuminated by candles, with bucket showers available.

Each day on the trail begins with a steaming cup of coffee, a hearty bowl of oat porridge, and eggs on toast. On the final day, an early rise is necessary for the arduous ascent of Sapitwa, the highest peak in Central Africa, where you'll witness an awe-inspiring sunrise. Be prepared for the chilly temperatures atop the mountain.

Day 07 Transfer to Zomba

Begin your day with a delightful breakfast atop Mulanje Mountain before embarking on a two-hour journey to Likhubula. From there, enjoy a private transfer to the serene Zomba Plateau.

Indulge in a peaceful night at Zomba Forest Lodge, allowing yourself much-needed rest and relaxation following the three-day climb. The lush pine trees, babbling streams, diverse wildlife, and an abundance of orchids and lilies set the stage for a memorable horseback safari with your personal guide.

As evening descends, savor a romantic atmosphere illuminated by candlelight and a crackling fire, accompanied by a delectable three-course home-cooked dinner before retiring for the night.

Day 08-09 Transfer Liwonde

Following your hearty morning meal, bid farewell to Zomba Forest Lodge and prepare for a 2.5-hour transfer to Liwonde National Park. Upon arrival, you'll embark on a boat journey to Mvuu Camp, where your en suite safari chalet awaits for the next two nights.

In between thrilling safari adventures, unwind by the pool or delve into the local culture with visits to neighboring communities. Your guide or lodge manager will be happy to assist in arranging these experiences.

Day 10-12 Escape to Mumbo

This morning, following your morning activities and a satisfying breakfast, you'll be picked up from Cape Maclear for a scenic two and a half-hour drive. Upon reaching the Kayak Africa House, you'll have some time to unwind before embarking on a dhow trip across Lake Malawi, departing at 15:00. After just an hour's journey, you'll arrive at a secluded white sandy beach adorned with six en suite reed tents, a restaurant, bar, and lounge.

Mumbo Island epitomizes barefoot luxury, boasting a limited number of canopied tents nestled on rocks crafted from reeds, timber, thatch, and canvas. Immersed in the captivating aura of the 'lake of stars', the island offers seclusion, with activities centered around the diverse marine reserve.

Day 13 Departure

Following a leisurely morning and a delightful breakfast, you'll embark on your journey back to the mainland aboard the dhow, departing at 09:30. Upon arrival, your private transfer to Kamazu International Airport awaits, with a travel time of approximately 3.5 hours.
