I'm busy putting together our next Africa touring adventure.

The Sling 2017 tour to Lake Malawi will take us to the world’s 9th largest lake and the 3rd largest and 2nd deepest lake in Africa.
The lake borders Malawi, Mozambique and Tanzania. It is home to more species of fish than any other lake. It is about 570 kms long and 75 kms wide, with an average depth of 290 m and maximum depth 706 m. It was originally named Lake Nyasa by Dr David Livingston in 1859.
Customs and immigration clearance will take place at Blantyre routing from Vilankulos for those who wish to fly via Mozambique. Other options are available and for those with a Sling LSA. One of the destinations will be Chintheche where some of the best beaches along the lake are to be found.
Malawi encompasses a wide variety of scenery ranging from the wooded rocky mountains sloping down to the shores of the lake to sandy coves and beaches. Its’ clear blue waters are popular for snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking and swimming.
I envisage a small group of about 6 Slings joining the tour, so if you’re interested please inbox me. Dates have not been set but we are looking at around March when the rains have cleared, the waters are still warm and before the chill of autumn...
The Malawi Tour follows on our amazing adventures to Madagascar, Victoria Falls and Mozambique in previous years. An estimated 22 hours flying total.
