Our blog

Do you wonder what it’s like in Malawi? Not just while having a great travel experience here, but also what daily life looks like? Then you’ll definitely enjoy our blogs.

We’ll tell you different stories about our life in the Warm Heart of Africa. From surviving the pandemic to dealing with corruption, and from meeting special people to funny, as well as embarrassing cultural differences. We share our tips and advice, but are most of all looking forward to letting you experience everything yourself in Malawi!

Of course, we also write about all the amazing places we can show you here. And did you know we started an additional blog series about the wildlife you could spot on safari?

Please tell us about your specific questions or any subjects you still miss. Perhaps soon we’ll write a blog especially for you!
