The perfect trip for animal lovers and adventurous types who want more than the typical ‘safari’ experience.


A Malawi Conservation Experience is suitable for single travellers or couples, and we also welcome parents and children (over 12 yrs) on our selected ‘family’ experiences.

The two-week trip combines work with rescued animals at Malawi’s only wildlife sanctuary and research in the African bush with time to relax on the shores of the famous Lake Malawi.
