If one travels to a foreign country, one should see the attractions of the country: in Malawi the highlights are the lake on the one hand and the parks with their landscape and game on the other.

You will be surprised how few tourists you will meet in Malawi. Malawi has not yet been recognised as a holiday destination by the mass tourism. This has got some positive side-effects: nature is still un-spoilt; on the game drives, there is no need, like in other parks, to move in a convoy and no need to queue behind other Safari vehicles to see animals.

We believe visiting a foreign country one should deal with the local culture as well. Saying culture we do not only mean masks and dances and wood-carvings, we especially mean daily life and mentality. Maybe more than other travel companies we highlight the view on the Malawian way of life.

Apart from this we try to make your journey as comfortable as possible. We avoid overly long or stressful stages, which is easy in a small country like Malawi. The time spent in the vehicle is limited and allows enough time to enjoy the highlights of the daily stages. You will not feel much pressure of time or hectic on your holiday with us.

Our Safaris are perfect for the Africa-beginner of any age; but even the experienced Africa traveller we guarantee lots of new experiences.

Budget Safari offers some tried and tested camping itineraries; but will also tailor-make a tour to your own requriements. Our 14 Days Safari in Malawi takes in the Viphya Plateau, Vwaza Marsh Wildlife Reserve, Nyika National Park, Nkhata Bay (Lake Malawi), Mua Mision, Liwonde National Park and Senga Bay. Our 18 Days Safari in Malawi and Zambia also includes an extension to South Luangwa National Park. We also offer shorter 5-6 day safaris taking in North Malawi’s highlights or South Luangwa National Park.

If you have different ideas for your holiday in Malawi, we can tailor-make a Safari according to your wishes. We can arrange any tour of any length tailor-made to your personal taste. We  can also arrange top-end Safaris where we take you only to the best hotels, lodges and restaurants, of the country. We also offer 4×4 hire, including an experienced driver, with a trailer and camping and cooking equipment as optional extras.

The minimum number of participants on our safaris is just two; the maximum group size is not limited. We provide English speaking tour guides and transport in comfortable 4x4s.

In Nkhata Bay, where we are based, we run Safari Cottage, which is available to rent.
