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 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....

We had a wonderful time and great memories. We felt safe the whole time and would recommend this trip to anyone of any age as long as you can walk a lot. They are with you from arrival to departure and any problems that arose the guides would try their best to solve. They also showed remarkable patience for other people in other groups we saw that were acting like idiots.

Ant provided excellent service. He always responded as quickly as he could, attending to the questions I had for him. He was also very patient and pleasant. I depended on his knowledge and service to make the trip.
I liked the service and the tour guide & driver on the tour. They were professional and provided very good service. I thought 1-2 hotels on the trip were not quite 4-star. It also happened that this group of people was always late for schedule and our walk pace was too slow. It really needs the guide to make people on schedule and be punctual for the activity. Overall I think the time management of this tour needs improvement.

My experience with Encounters was excellent from start to finish. The Tour Guide, Sheriff, was the most passionate, enthusiastic and professional guide I have ever had on a tour and his love for Egypt really made me enjoy my time so much more.
I was cautious about arriving in Egypt given the current circumstances about the country, but felt safer that I did living in London as soon as I arrived. All of the Encounters staff are very professional.

Conscientious in early communication; knowledgeable, humorous and caring tour guides; an exemplary itinerary that was well organized yet flexible; an overall extraordinary experience. I'd recommend them enthusiastically.
