WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I ARRIVE?
Upon arrival at Lilongwe Airport, you will be met by a friendly representative and taken to your project location.
WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?
You will be staying at a research camp within Liwonde National Park on the banks of the Shire River or at the Kasungu camp, which is located on the banks of the Lifupa Dam.
The camps are comfortable, with canvas safari tents, beds and linen provided and hot showers and flushing toilets. The large tents can sleep up to 6 people.
WHAT WILL I BE EATING?
Three meals a day are provided at the camps.
Malawian cuisine is known to be quite varied and exciting so why not try having a taste of the local cuisine while you’re out and about? Grab the opportunity to treat yourself to some delicious grilled fresh fish from Lake Malawi and have it with nsima, Malawi’s staple food made from ground corn and local vegetables.After the project, you may choose to explore more of Malawi under your own steam or with some of your new friends. Your coordinator will be more than happy to advice you and help you get started whatever your decision may be.
With the project being based in national parks, there are plenty of opportunities on your days off to explore the abundance of local flora and fauna by boat, jeep and foot. The parks are home to some incredible animals including elephants, hippos, buffalo, zebra and black rhinos.
