Tailor-madke this safari tour

This tour can be tailor-made to your specifications. For example, you could also insert a night or two on the Zomba Plateau at the Ku Chawe Inn if you like walking and mountain scenery. This would be on Day 6 after Satemwe Tea Planation and before Liwonde National Park - to make it a 14 night itinerary.

OR you can opt to fly on to the Nyika Plateau in northern Malawi if you wish.
