5 Days Malawi Adventure Safaris


You can enjoy the finest of Malawi with Barefoot on this tour, which offers unrivaled comfort and style. You will have the best experience possible for all of your transports, daily activities, and airport pickup (if desired). You can spend a short amount of time in the African forest and on the beaches of the third largest lake in Africa by visiting Liwonde National Park and Lake Malawi National Park. The Lake Malawi National Park is situated at Cape Maclear at the southern end of Lake Malawi and is the first freshwater national park in the world as well as a World Heritage Site. The park encompasses the land surrounding the cape and harbor, the Lake, and islands that are up to 100 meters (330 feet) offshore. This area features a true aquarium full of tropical fish swimming in waters that are vibrantly multicolored. Here, more than anyplace else in the world, the endless thousands of freshwater fish known as mbuna are more numerous and diverse. Fish can be fed straight from the hand, and boats can be rented. In addition to a wide range of birds such fish eagles, cormorants, and hyrax, the park also features baboons, antelope, and hyrax away from the lake.

Liwonde National Park boasts one of Africa’s highest densities of animals! As the park is home to about 900 elephants, you will get the chance to see enough of them! The elephant population has increased to the point where it is now difficult for them to survive; as a result, some of them were moved in what was dubbed “the biggest elephant translocation in Malawi” to the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve.
