WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF VISITING MALAWI IN OCTOBER?

  • All lake lodges are open
  • Rates are on their way down
  • It’s very rare to come across mosquitoes
  • There’s a lot to enjoy on and around Lake Malawi – sunbathing, diving, snorkelling, kayaking, and more
  • If you visit Zambia as part of a bush-and-beach holiday before or after coming to the lake, you’ll experience first-class wildlife viewing, as the paucity of water sources results in animals clustering around the few remaining waterholes.

ANY LOWLIGHTS?
