The Zambia Malawi Exploration Safari is for travellers with a sense of adventure! An exciting safari experience exploring the lesser travelled South Eastern African countries. This tour is not for the faint hearted – the travelling can be slow on some rough roads, but the journey offers amazing scenery and fantastic highlights.

This safari is a limited participation safari – from carrying your own bag, putting up and taking down your own tent to cleaning your own dishes and helping to pack the truck in the morning, it’s all part of the adventure!

Malaria prophylactics are advised.
