Travel with confidence
With our flexibility promise, and a dedicated expert to advise you while you plan, you can book with certainty with Audley.

Best known for its sea-like lake, Malawi is also a land of forest-covered hills where monkeys leap through the trees, open grassland dotted with grazing antelope, and tea estates rambling across the foothills of Mount Mulanje. Our safari specialists have visited each corner of the country and will put together a vacation to Malawi that matches your interests, whether you’re looking for a safari, a beach break, or both.

While not Africa’s most obvious safari destination, Malawi’s Liwonde National Park is growing in popularity. Here, you can embark on game drives, bush walks and boat trips along the Shire River, which is regularly visited by hippo, crocodiles, elephant and an array of birdlife. For a change of scene, head to the Thyolo region, staying on a tea estate and following walking trails through the plantations. Then, end your trip on Lake Malawi’s sandy shores or fly to the remote Likoma Island, home to Africa’s third-largest cathedral.
