Malawi Zambia tour in the wild north
What we will see
Malawi Zambia tour in the wild north.
A trip to the highlands of the Rift Valley, between Malawi and Zambia, in comfort.
Few countries have unknown and forgotten regions. In Malawi it is the north. This region is dominated by Viphya highlands, where lies the Viphya Forest Reserve, the unique scenery of the Nyika National Park, a pearl set between 2000 and 2600 meters above sea level. Nyika national park is one of the most spectacular scenery and unusual landscape in Central Africa.
The Nyika Plateau forming the wall of the Great Rift Valley and the flood plains of Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve, including buffalos, elephants and hippos, to 1000 m above sea level, an area of swamps and plains and the beautiful Lake Malawi.
The lake is the third largest in Africa, with clear waters like those of a sea that is home to about 550 species of fish.
In Zambia, the incredible South Luangwa National Park. We experience the thrill of being close to nature during the walking safaris and also entering the mid of the park even at night with the jeep. A park with an abundance of predators: lions, jackals, hyenas, cheetahs, small herds of wild dogs now endangered and, not least, relatively easy to spot, the leopard. The park is also home to two large rare endemic species: the Thornicroft giraffe and Cookson wildebeest. Meeting with local people, especially in Malawi, will remain in the heart for their great simplicity in the joy of life: unspoilt and little tourist sites immersed in a natural wild, animals, villages, markets, a journey spanning two nations that are so unique and so unforgettable.
13 days. Possibilities to extend your trip to the beautiful beaches of Malawi Lake.
