Malawi has been named in the Top 10 Best in Travel for 2022 by Lonely Planet! And a wildlife placement with Lilongwe Wildlife Trust is a great way to experience the 'Warm Heart of Africa'.

For a limited time we're offering a 15% discount on all bookings for our placements. Check out the offer below, as well as some exciting news about upgrades to our volunteer accommodation and our new vet clinic.

Amid continued uncertainty, one of the best ways you can support our work is to give a recurring donation. This enables us to deliver greater impact in the long run in our efforts to save wildlife and protect Malawi’s wild places. Thank you for your support!
