Begin your 11-day self-drive tour of Malawi at the Lilongwe International Airport where you are chauffeured to luxurious Kumbali Lodge for your overnight stay. With some time for relaxation before dinner, you soak up marvellous views of the countryside.
Then drive your rental vehicle through the Thyolo region to grand Huntingdon House, which is surrounded by the rolling hills of tea plantations. Enjoy picnics on the estate’s beautiful gardens and guided birding walks that have marvellous views of Mount Mulanje. You visit Satemwa’s tea factory, which produces some of Malawi’s finest export teas and observe the production process from leaf to cup.
Next up is Mkulumadzi Lodge situated within the Majete Game Reserve where your home is an open-fronted riverside chalet overlooking the captivating wilderness. Stalk rare antelope through the reserve on guided 4x4 game drives and enjoy walking safaris through the shallow Mkulumadzi River valley and observe the glorious Kapichira Falls on an afternoon boat cruise.
Your last stop is Pumulani Lake Lodge, where your vehicle will be left at reception, collected and taken back to Lilongwe for you. From your thatched suite set in lush hills on Lake Malawi’s southern shore, experience barefoot-luxury with land and water-based activities to meet anybody’s idea of holiday recreation.
