Malawi

MALAWI SAFARI HOLIDAYS

You could be forgiven for overlooking this less visited African country, and you'd certainly be missing out on a real treat if you did. Most well know for 'the lake' the 500km long lake is the heart of the country and offers some of the most amazing experiences to be found anywhere. Whether it's kayaking along the stunning shore, diving or snorkelling the crystal clear water or just relaxing on the beaches, Lake Malawi is truly a memorable experience. Away from the lake, the Liwonde National Park is home to the 'big 5' - lion, rhino, elephant, leopard and buffalo. The dramatic mountain scenery around Nyika National Park offers some of the most enjoyable hiking routes in the whole of Africa.

Malawi has so much to offer anyone willing to take the plunge. Whether it's trekking in the highland wilderness, swimming in the warm blue waters of Lake Malawi, or just relaxing and soaking up the uniquely vibrant culture of this alluring country, you're sure to leave with a longing to return.

TOUR REVIEWS

I have dealt with Anthony Horrobin on a number of occasions and it is like talking to an old friend on the phone. Anthony is super-efficient and will always go the extra mile to create the perfect trip.

Encounters Travel did an excellent job in all aspects of our trip! Egypt was amazing and the trip was made especially enjoyable as a result of the quality of the guides. I highly recommend Encounters Travel!
Worth every penny! Go to Egypt with Encounters Travel!

Encounters Travel did such a superb job in organizing this tour. I had never heard of them before going on the Maldives Magic tour, however now I will recommend them to friends/family and use them for my future planned trips.
Our tour is what made the trip that much more memorable. Rather than being plopped at a westernized resort, we were able to get a taste of how the locals live, eat and entertain themselves. We stayed in quaint guesthouses on the islands amongst the locals, ate authentic Maldivian cuisine (one day even with a Maldivian family who made us breakfast), and viewed a traditional dance/singing performance which was absolutely delightful. This was a trip of a lifetime that I will never forget.

I liked the fact we were met at the airport and helped thru customs and getting a visa and then upon leaving taken to where we needed to go. Its always tough to figure out where everything is in a foreign airport when you do not travel much
Everything was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable and liked that we were interested in what he was telling us. We were lucky to be in a group with like minded people who also wanted to stay in places longer of which our guide accommodated. Only negative thing was the sitting train. Best to just take the flying option. Train was not bad but has no services, no alcohol, and breakfast was all carbs and an egg. Egypt really seems to like their breads and pastries....

Took care of every single detail from prior to our arrival in Cario until we we're dropped of at the airport a week later. Our hotels, tours, meals, and tour group we're all wonderful. Our tour guide was wonderful!
The price was great and the people wonderful!
