LILONGWE, Malawi (02/2014) Robin Pope Safaris, the preeminent safari operator known for its innovative safaris, announces a celebratory Golden Safari Package to honor this year’s 50th anniversary of Malawi’s independence. The Southern African country is known as “the warm heart of Africa” for the friendliness of its people.
Rates for the 11-night package with stays at Mkulumadzi, Huntingdon House, Miyala Camp (alternatively Mvuu Lodge for travel before July 2014) and Pumulani start at US3772 per person sharing and are valid beginning April 2014 through January 2015, and include such highlights as:
Majete Wildlife Reserve, one of Malawi’s largest protected areas covering more than 173,000 acres and the only Big 5 reserve in the country. It is located within the Miombo woodland eco region.
Satemwa Tea Estate is among Malawi’s most respected and established tea and coffee producers, managed and operated by third generation members of the Cathcart Kay family. Colonial-style Huntingdon House, the heart of the estate, is surrounded by rolling manicured gardens with secret patios and terraces, and evokes the colorful history of Malawi’s spectacular Shire Highlands.
Liwonde National Park, considered to be one of the top birding locations in Southern Africa, offers fine game viewing, beautiful riverine surroundings and excellent bird watching. Much of the terrain is Shire River floodplains, much loved by the healthy population of elephants in the park.
Nankumba Peninsula Explorer David Livingstone dubbed Lake Malawi the “lake of stars,” because of its shimmering waters. It contains more variety of fish than any fresh water body in the world. Nankumba is one of the lake’s most beautiful shores and borders Lake Malawi National Park, established to protect the cichlid fish, endemic to the lake.
