MALAWI

Malawi offers large stretches of sand and deserted tree-covered islands for quiet days and a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

When you think of a landlocked country, the last things that spring to mind are sandy beaches and unspoilt Islands. Malawi is a strange wonder in this sense. The country is well-known for the vast Lake Malawi, which covers 29,600 square kilometres along the eastern border. Book some beach time with Tailored Ventures and relax and explore in this amazing destination. Lake Malawi is home to a number of islands that are waiting to be explored. They are accessible by boat from the shore of the lake.

There are a number of activities to be experienced on the lake: snorkelling, scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, and boat trips are examples of what we can plan into your itinerary. If you are a keen fisherman, trout is a popular catch. We will plan your individual adventure.

Given the wealth of activities and range of accommodation available, we certainly recommend spending a good part of your vacation on the welcoming shores of Lake Malawi. But don’t limit yourself to only this part of Malawi, as there is plenty more to explore. You won’t find high-rises, or large resorts and crowded beaches―something you would expect at many other beach destinations. Malawi offers large stretches of sand and deserted tree-covered islands for quiet days and a break from the hustle and bustle of every day life.

Malawi is a country that’s both beautiful and diverse, and is home to a large amount of varied flora and fauna. Safari is highly recommended in Liwonde National Park with its elephants, hippos, crocodiles, and the rolling grasslands of the little-visited Nyika Plateau.

A wide range of accommodation options are available. Most accommodation is hand-built by the locals, using locally sourced materials. Expect luxury African chic, rather than styleized suites. Malawi is considered a top honeymoon destination, however some islands are well-suited to small groups and families travelling together. Let Tailored Ventures know how you prefer to travel, and we will recommend the best options for you.

The adventure traveller’s paradise, Malawi can easily be added onto a South Africa itinerary, as well as to neighbouring countries such as Zimbabwe or Zambia. Even the dunes of Namibia can be included, depending on how much time you have.
