Tour in Malawi and Zambia african wilderness
WHAT WE WILL SEE
Tour in Zambia and Malawi african wilderness. A trip between Malawi and Zambia, to immerse ourselves in nature and peoples.
In South Luangwa National Park, the heart of a charming ecosystem that boasts antelopes, zebras, buffalo, elephants and an abundance of predators: lions, jackals, hyenas, cheetahs, small herds of wild dogs now endangered, and not least and relatively easy to spot, the leopard. Here you can also visit the park during the night hours, when some predators such as leopards and lions are most active and also we expect the “walking safari”: here, in fact, was born the tradition of walking safaris.
At Zomba, on the Zomba Plateau, an area of1800 meters boasting a forest of considerable size and many species of animals and plants unique to the world; Then we will pass on the gentle hills covered by pure white and green tea. Walking through the immense spaces of the plantations we meet the tea workers.
We will dive into the rich cultural heritage of Malawi and in the museum of Chamare Mua, the oldest and original operational mission in Malawi, where we will see the masks of the Gule Wamkulu, the largest collection of masks in the world, a part of the secret ceremony of the ethnic Chewa.
A tour away from tourism, between the poignant beauty of its landscapes, Malawi and its people is an incredibly hospitable and friendly country. The kilometers of pristine beaches of golden sand, that cannot be compared to our Italian coasts, and to the meeting with the fishermen and the villages of the lake.
