Beach and Bush Combo

Located on the banks of the Shire River at the southern end of Lake Malawi and bordering Lake Malombe, Liwonde’s breathtaking scenic beauty is unmatched. Enveloped by riverine swamps, open grassland, mopane and deciduous woodland, Liwonde boasts a healthy population of diverse wild and birdlife which has made these natural wild surroundings their home.

Cape Maclear is a small beach village which is one of the most relaxed areas in the country, and some of the most exclusive accommodation is found here. Again, the activities centre on the lake, although bikes are available if you want to cycle through the village.

The watersports available include sailing, surfing, windsurfing, water-skiing, kayaking…the list is almost endless. The pleasant, clean water is the perfect temperature for swimming, and diving here is unbeatable. The lake itself is part of the Rift Valley system, and the life contained in its amazingly rich waters is unique.

Liwande National Park
Day 1

Located at the southern tip of Lake Malombe in the south of Malawi, Liwonde National Park is truly a national treasure worth experiencing. While Malawi is not as well known for big game as other African countries, Liwonde is brimming with wildlife that literally sits at your doorstep making this national park the most popular in the country.

The rustic atmosphere of the camp is enhanced by its location in one of the richest habitats of the park. Just lazing about on one of the camp’s various observation decks to watch the elephants or count the many species of birds, is the perfect way to spend a day here.

Cape Maclear, Lake Malawi
Day 2 and 3

A long stretch of powder-fine sand bookended by mountains and lapped by dazzling water, Cape Maclear deserves all the hype thrown at it. By day the bay glitters a royal blue, studded by nearby islands and puttering, crayon-coloured fishing boats. On shore women wash clothes, dry fish, and nautical types spread out vermilion nets to dry. And there’s bags of things to do aside from lotus eating on a hammock, be it kayaking, sailing, snorkelling, walking or diving. Come afternoon the streets ring with music from the backstreet gospel choirs… Prepare to be lulled!
