A significant amount of income is derived from repeat customers, which shows evidence of on-going customer satisfaction. World –class customer service and attention to detail are yet more factors that have contributed to the success of this vibrant growing company.
In the thirteen years Jambo Africa has been in operation its track record is enviable. Jambo Africa’s experience in the provision of top quality tours is the perfect background to conference and special events organisation service as well as accommodation / lodge operators. Over the years the management have built up relationships with all leading accommodation providers and other operators both in Malawi and neighbouring countries.

Having had an interest in developing the Lower Shire Valley as a tourist destination from its conception, Jambo Africa acquired the concession for the lodge in Lengwe National Park in 2003. We are firm believer in the vast potential of the Lower Shire Valley as a prime area for eco tourism.
Jambo is committed to developing Malawi, in particular the Lower Shire Valley, as a premier tourist destination. This is evidenced by the upgrading and development of Nyala Lodge at Lengwe National Park and our involvement in the Lower Shire Heritage Trust. At the gate of Lengwe National park the Lower Shire Heritage Trust is establishing Tisunge! – Lower Shire Heritage Centre. Other than being involved as trustee, Jambo Africa’s assistance to the above mentioned Centre has been providing materials, labour, transport, accommodation for volunteers, and business and technical consultancy. As a result, we have acquired a lot of knowledge about the environment, natural and cultural, of the Lower Shire Valley and its potential for eco tourism. We cooperate closely with the communities in the Lower Shire Valley in developing sustainable income generating activities and involving them in the development of tourism in this beautiful, yet little known, part of Malawi. Jambo Africa can thus boast to be a well established and involved company in the Lower Shire Valley and has harmonious relationship with the communities surrounding Lengwe National Park.

Jambo Africa has the best Malawi has to offer:- from the magnificent expanse of Lake Malawi, which runs along the entire eastern border, to the high plateaus and majestic Mount Mulanje and the beauty of its many national parks. Malawi is a land of exciting contrasts. Lake Malawi lies in the southern portion on the Great Rift Valley. Once described by David Livingstone as the “Lake of Stars”, Lake Malawi is the third largest lake in Africa. In sharp contrast to the lakeshore are the towering heights of the Mulanje Massif, the highest mountain in Central Africa, the densely forested Zomba Plateau and the rolling hills of Nyika Plateau in the north.
To the south visit Liwonde National Park where the Shire River flows through. For the more adventurous discover the lesser known southern game parks, located in the beautiful Lower Shire Valley, Lengwe National Park and Majete Wildlife Reserve. Whilst visiting southern Malawi explore the lake at Cape Maclear and all its wonders. Don't forget to visit Mount Mulanje! Also in the south are the sugar and tea estates, which make a fascinating visit.
To the north enjoy the diversity of Malawi's highlands, the hills, valleys and rocky peaks of Viphya Plateau and the unique Vwaza Marsh Game Reserve Experience the breathtaking Nyika Plateau. Relax on pristine beaches and swim in the crystal clear waters of Chintheche.
