About The Malawi Trek & Bike Expedition

During our Malawi trek & bike expedition you will experience an amazing country with an astonishing variety of habitat and wildlife. The flora and fauna in Malawi are second to none.

Often in the shadow of its high profile neighbours Tanzania and Zambia, this narrow strip of land has lots to offer. Being less travelled, much of Malawi is untouched by mass tourism and makes a fantastic location for adventure sport.

Our Malawi trek & bike expedition starts by trekking through the Mulanje massif, a huge isolated block of mountain. Mulanje is truly stunning with beautiful pools, amazing view points and many rare species of flora and fauna.

The next stage of our Malawi trek & bike expedition begins from Sapitwa. After an overnight camp we will mount our bikes and work our way through a mixture of forest patches, small holder farms and picturesque villages. There are both challenging climbs and amazing descents during the biking section.

Our final destination is Liwonde National Park where we can enjoy some well-deserved R & R along with a safari where we hope to see some Elephants, Buffalo, Hippos and Crocodiles.
