Malawi – Beach and bush
Alluring Malawi delivers fantastic big game viewing and deserted beaches almost a thousand miles from the nearest ocean.
One of Africa’s smallest yet most beautiful countries, Malawi is famous not only for its smiling, friendly people, but above all for its extraordinary freshwater lake, Lake Malawi. The third largest lake in Africa, Lake Malawi has all the essentials you need for a perfect beach holiday – remote sandy coves, clear water and shoals of fish, plus the perfect setting for sailing, snorkelling or kayaking.
Zambia – Untamed wilderness
The birthplace of the guided walking safari, discover Southern Africa’s wildest and most remote destination, without skimping on comfort or luxury.
A Zambia safari combines excellent big game viewing with luxurious lodges and some of the best guides in Africa. And although the wild beauty of Zambia’s vast reserves has long made them a favourite among safari aficionados, you won’t be fighting the crowds.
Go on guided walking safaris through the South Luangwa, famous for its rich diversity of wildlife; paddle past hippos and crocodiles on a canoe safari in the beautiful Lower Zambezi; or enjoy game drives and horseback safaris in untamed Kafue National Park. Or combine two or three different destinations for a complete Zambia safari experience.
