Malawi is a hidden gem boasting a diversity of scenery and activities. This journey takes you to Majete, a true undiscovered wilderness where every trip into the bush will feel like an adventure. Then on to the 'Lake of Stars' - so named by the explorer Livingstone, where you enjoy sparkling waters fringed by idyllic sandy beaches.

Day 1 - Arrive Johannesburg

Transfer to Blantyre by plane and then by road to Mkulumadzi in the Majete Wildlife Reserve. The Lodge, Accessible by foot bridge suspended over the Mkulumadzi River, comprises eight spacious chalets, each with private viewing decks offering dramatic views of the Mkulumadzi and the Shire rivers. The main lodge is an open-ended building maximising the beautiful river views, and taking full advantage of the cool shaded area created by the forested banks.

Overnight: Mkulumadzi.

Overlooking the lake and exclusively nestled within the Lake Malawi National Park, Pumulani has total seclusion and privacy. There are ten villas scattered amongst the boulders and trees on the hillside, each with a thatched roof, which has a cooling effect on them. Individual in style and shape, all have spacious bedrooms, bathrooms and seating areas. The front sliding doors open up onto the elevated deck offering optimal views and privacy. With both a private beach, and pool incorporated in the design this is the perfect place to relax.
