Tips and Notes
The game viewing is excellent in Liwonde however do not expect huge open plains with vast quantities of game. This safari is best enjoyed by those looking for a bit of game viewing mixed with the relaxing beach style visit to the lake.
Activities on the lake are varied from kayaking, diving, snorkelling and sailing while there are also cultural activities to be experienced on the island.
Malawi is good value for money as it is a little off the beaten track and less known than some of its big game neighbours like Tanzania, South Africa and Zambia.
