Itinerary idea in detail

Ask us if you would also like us to arrange your international flights at our preferred rates.

  • On arrival in Lilongwe you'll be met and assisted to your light aircraft, which will fly you to the Nyika Plateau. Here you'll be met by a private driver who'll take you to your lodge.

  • You can spend the day exploring the plateau. Activities to choose from include mountain biking, walking and game drives.

  • Another day to experience the unique surroundings of the Nyika Plateau. You may spot animals such as Burchell's zebra, leopard, hyena and antelope in the grassland, as well as a variety of birdlife.

  • This morning you'll take an hour and a half light aircraft transfer from Nyika to Likoma Island on Lake Malawi. You'll then be met by your hosts from Kaya Mawa, who'll drive you to your beautiful lodgings.

  • You can choose to spend the day out on the lake, where water sports include snorkeling, kayaking, scuba diving, kite surfing, waterskiing and sailing.

  • You may wish to explore the local area today, paying a visit to St Peter's Cathedral, which was built in 1911 and is located in the middle of the island, and visiting local villages and their markets, where women can be seen weaving textiles.

  • You could spend your last day on the island relaxing on the beach and dining on delicious meals at Kaya Mawa's restaurant.

  • You'll have an hour's light aircraft transfer to Lilongwe Airport, arriving in time for your onward flight.
