Travelling with a Guide

Travelling to a country or region you are not familiar with involves solving a lot of problems, especially if this country is in Africa. On your own, most of your time and energy will be spent organizing the practical aspects of your journey, like getting from A to B, finding your way out of the overwhelmingly crowded and often poorly structured capital cities, finding and choosing a safe and reliable mode of transport and accommodation you are comfortable with. And what about changing your money for local currency or finding food that is safe to eat and meets your wishes? When you are travelling with a guide, he will help you with all practicalities and any problem or question that arises. Guides save you a lot of time and energy that would otherwise be spent on organizing and finding out things. With a guide, you can relax and fully enjoy your trip.

One of the most important advantages of a guide is the level of contact with local people. We know the different languages that are spoken in the different regions of Malawi and we help you communicate with the people you meet. We make contact easily everywhere, not only in the tourist places where everybody speaks English. We bring down the language barrier by acting as an interpreter. We explain local traditions and beliefs and will bring you in contact with real people, places and things you will not find in any guidebook.

We believe that bringing you in real contact with local people we meet on our trip is essential and is often the difference between a nice holiday and a lifetime experience.
