Introduction

Departing from Blantyre, this unique tour traverses through the scenic landscapes of southern Malawi from mountain forestry, wildlife wilderness to the crystal lakeside freshwaters of Lake Malawi. Riders will get to explore the picturesque woodland trails of Zomba’s Plateau, become immersed in the wet grassy marshlands of Liwonde’s National Park, meander along the tranquil shire river into the Cape Maclear Nature reserve and discover the gateway to Lake Malawi’s deserted islands for a refreshing visit on pristine & un-populated islands.
