Hi, hoi, hola, hallo

Safari experiences that you will not find with any other travel company. We know Africa best and will get you to the right place & time to enjoy the greatest shows on Earth!

Lake Malawi is an African Great Lake – the southernmost lake in the East African Rift system and a popular inland beach destination as a finale to top off that exhilarating wildlife safari.

The water is usually exceptionally clear for a freshwater lake, with visibility extending further than 30m. Beneath the warm cerulean waves, Lake Malawi’s ancient but turbulent geographic history has created truly spectacular underwater scenery decorated by electric flashes of vibrant fish.

Measuring 570km in length and some 75km at its widest point and 700m at its deepest, Lake Malawi is the fifth-largest freshwater lake in the world (by volume), and the third-largest in Africa (behind Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika).

Why us

We live here, in Africa, and have been doing this since 1991. Travel in Africa is about knowing when and where to go, and with whom. A few weeks too early / late or a few kilometers off course and you could miss the greatest show on Earth. And wouldn’t that be a pity?
