Overview

Discover the ultimate combination of a safari and island escape, all within Malawi’s diverse landscapes. Your journey begins in Mejete Wildlife Reserve at Mkulumadzi for an intimate, isolated experience. Relax and unwind amidst true wilderness and venture out into a private concession with expert guides. Each moment spent away from the lodge promises adventure and excitement, while the luxury camp offers rejuvenation and first-class facilities, ideal for the start of your trip.

From there, the colonial leg of your trip begins at the exceptionally beautiful Satemwa Tea Estates. The esteemed Huntingdon House will be your home-away-from-home while you enjoy picturesque scenery, lawn games, tea tastings, and even a tour of the coffee factory. There may not be any safari-style wildlife viewing, but a prolific aviary population ensure some sightings during your stay.

Bid the plantations farewell and transfer to the Shire River and on to Kuthengo Camp. Spend the afternoon relaxing in the pool or on your private deck before beginning your exploration of the lauded Liwonde National Park. Game drives, walking safaris, and boating safaris ensure your time here is adventure-filled with equal time for rest and respite.

Leave Kuthengo Camp behind in favour of the idyllic, warm waters of Lake Malawi. Mumbo Island Camp promises rustic, but lovely lake view chalets with an enticing array of water-based activities. This is the perfect opportunity to take your tour into your own hands – idle by the pool, take a meander around the island, discover hidden beaches, and enjoy sublime sunsets.

The island dream continues following your transfer to Nankoma Island, an unspoiled paradise protected by Lake Malawi National Park. As with your time at Mumbo Island Camp, your stay at Blue Zebra Island Lodge invites you to tailor-make your stay. Enjoy a variety of watersports, explore the island on foot, or simply relax by the infinity pool and on your private deck. It’s the ultimate island respite.

Itinerary

Day to day

On arrival at Chileka International Airport you will be met and transferred to the Majete Wildlife Reserve. Your home for the next two nights, Mkulumadzi is found in the heart of 7,000 hectares of private concession, and the confluence of two rivers.

Spend your days under the shade of giant leadwood trees and venturing out on twice daily game drives to discover your spectacular surroundings. Between the game drives, and walking safaris, enjoy endless opportunities for exciting wildlife sightings, including safari big hitters, the Big 5.

Each luxurious chalet enjoys views of the river, ample natural light, contemporary furnishings, and both indoor and outdoor showers. Wake to the sounds of dawn’s chorus and the rumble of the river before greeting the world from your private deck. As the property has no phone reception or Wi-Fi, it’s the perfect opportunity to immerse yourself in nature and embrace a holistic safari experience.
