After a few days in Mbeya, we continued to Malawi and spent the next few weeks travelling south along the massive Lake Malawi, stopping at some beautiful lakeside resorts and charming towns on our way down. During that time we made a lot of new friends, travellers as well as locals, and we fell completely in love with this wonderful place and its charming people. Easy to see why it’s called the warm heart of Africa.
To get to Malawi we board The Tanzania-Zambia Railway. The train would take us on a 24+ hour journey from Dar Es Salaam, across the southern countryside of Tanzania and down to the town of Mbeya, close to the Malawi border. However, as soon as we boarded our ramshackle railway carriage, we started to doubt if it was even capable of getting us that far in one piece.
“Suddenly Alfred signalled to us to stop, the trackers had located the Gorillas not far from where we were. The excitement moved like a quiet wave through the group.

Deep in the misty jungles of Rwanda live one of our closest evolutionary cousin and one of the most elusive and magnificent creatures on earth. Join us on as we go on on an exclusive and unforgettable trek to end up face to face with the mighty Mountain Gorilla.
Lake Natron in Tanzania is is an important breeding ground for millions of lesser flamingos. The drive there took us on a long and dusty road in the ancient landscape of the great Rift Valley, passing volcanoes and calderas in some of the most dramatic scenery we’ve seen.
