Walking Holidays (Gentle)

Gentle walking holidays, typically at low altitude and with a wildlife or cultural component

Walking Holidays

Our walking holidays, as distinct from our trekking and climbing holidays, consist of easy walking on mostly level terrain that can be managed by any normally fit person, often within the context of a broader cultural or sightseeing tour. These itineraries are unlikely to involve camping, but may involve time spent in comfortable mountain lodges!

An adventure-filled and unforgettable holiday

The team who took us up Kilimanjaro were quite simply outstanding

Sangwala Walking Trail

Explore the remote and little-visited Nyika National Park, in the north of Malawi, on this 3-day (43km) scenic walking trail. This is a beautiful region of Malawi notable as much for its dramatic landscapes as its wildlife. Stunning highlands, wildflower meadows and rich montane vegetation define Nyika, and though it is by no means big game safari territory, the wildlife is rich and varied.
