Why not experience the pristine beaches, crystal clear waters with some of the best freshwater scuba diving and snorkelling in the world? At the same time meet and interact with the local people. Visit Nyika National Park, Malawi’s largest national park and the only big game Afro-montane area in south-central Africa. Nyika is renowned for its rolling hills, high-altitude grassland, pockets of evergreen forests and diverse game viewing. Your options are endless!

The month is November and Malawi too is calling out for the November rains. This very dry spell does not come without it’s advantages of course. If relaxing on a beach and soaking up the African sun is right down your alley, then you are in luck as Lake Malawi is at it’s lowest point in about 13 years, which means the receding waterline has made extra room for sun-babies to enjoy.

For a few months, rumors about the presence of lion cubs in the Majete Wildlife Reserve have been circulating and although they had been spotted, there was no photographic evidence. Recently a guide from Mkulumadzi Lodge managed to photograph the cubs, (yes there are in fact TWO cubs). This is fantastic news for the reserve – which has only in recent years become a big five destination – and fantastic news for Malawi! So, will you make Malawi your next port of call?
