This romantic holiday combines an exclusive hippo safari with a tropical desert island experience. Explore the Liwonde National Park, home to the densest population of hippos and crocodiles in the world, by foot or boat. Then, chill out in Lake Malawi on Mumbo, a real life Robinson Crusoe island.
Liwonde National Park is home to a vast array of plants and wildlife. Staying for three nights in the only lodge of the park, you can explore the lakes, marshes, savannah and hills to your heart’s content.
Spot crocodiles prowling through the reeds, or hippos bathing in the river as you explore the rivers by boat. Or on one of the guided walks with a qualified guide, watch the elephants bathing at a waterhole, or a lion stalking a flock of impala. Not to mention the many species of birds that make the park their home.
After spending 3 nights in this secluded wildlife haven, you will be transferred to the Lake Malawi National Park. This freshwater reserve is filled with stunning tropical fish and is home to the deserted tropical island of Mumbo. Explore the water by kayak or snorkel or dive in these wonderfully warm waters.
This holiday is for people wanting an intimate and secluded experience. There are no bright lights or discos in either or the locations, with the emphasis being on relaxation and enjoying the tranquility that the parks have to offer. Wildlife is in abundance both on the land and in the water and you can explore by foot, kayak or in a boat.
Whilst families are welcome on this trip, you might feel self-conscious if your teenagers have a predilection for playing heavy metal at high volume, or your toddler throws multiple tantrums at full volume.
