This Malawi safari holiday visits a couple of the country’s most remote highlights. It’s first stop is the rolling hills and mountain outcrops of the Nyika Plateau for a three-night stay, before continuing on to the idyllic western shore of Lake Malawi.

Days 1-3

3 nights at Chelinda Lodge (full board & activities) | Nyika Plateau, Malawi

From Lilongwe Airport you will be met and transferred to your private charter to Chelinda Airstrip, spending 3 nights here, at Chelinda Lodge. You’ll stay in a log cabin built out of local timber and stone, with stunning views over the rolling hills. Your days here will be spent on game drives looking for the large herds of roan, reedbuck, zebra and eland. If you’re lucky, you’ll catch a glimpse of an elusive leopard. Other activities on offer are walking, mountain biking, and fly-fishing in the nearby dams.

Days 4-7

4 nights at Chintheche Inn (full board) | Shore of Lake Malawi, Malawi

After breakfast on your last morning at Chelinda Lodge, you are transferred by road to Chintheche Inn. It is a scenic drive of roughly six hours, passing through Nyika National Park before meeting Lake Malawi and driving along parallel with it’s western shore, until you reach Chintheche Inn, where you will stay for four nights. This small, simple lodge is located on a lovely stretch of beach. Your days here will be spent snorkelling, sailing, fishing, scuba diving, on boat trips or simply relaxing on the beach or beside the pool.

Day 8

On your final morning at Chintheche you will leave after breakfast for your road transfer back to Lilongwe where you will continue with your own onward travel arrangements.
