The Malawi Southern Explorer to Liwonde & Lake is an enchanting wildlife and beach safari holiday. It's a great introduction to unspoiled Malawi. It could also be the basis for a longer stay (perhaps combining it with a fly-in safari to the Nyika Plateau).

You stay first at some of the best-loved safari camps in Malawi, Mvuu Wilderness Lodge in the Liwonde National Park. Next, you travel by road north to Cape Maclear in the southern part of Lake Malawi.

We have given the tour at three different price points.

Our Paired Back Option combines 3 nights at Mvuu Camp with 3 nights at the rustic but idyllic Mumbo Island Camp

Our Base Itinerary combines 3 nights at Mvuu Lodge with 3 nights with a Luxury room at Makokola Retreat (if you prefer more of a hotel ambience more). But we can combine it with Mumbo Island Camp if you prefer.

Our Red Carpet option combines 3 nights at Kuthengo Lodge, also in Liwonde with 3 nights at Pumulani Lodge
