Do we need to bring towels and/or sleeping bags on our trip? For South Luangwa NP: No. Towels and bedding will be provided.
For Northern/Southern Experience/Liwonde: Yes. You have to bring your own sleeping bag and towel(s).
Is it possible to leave luggage in a secure location at Mitengo House while we are on the trip to South Luangwa? Yes. We have a storage space to keep your bag(s) for those days, please ask at Mitengo House's reception for assistance or further information.
Is it possible to leave our car at Mitengo House car park while we go on the safari? Yes. You can leave your car at Mitengo House. The guard will tell you exactly where to park, so your car will not be in the way for other guests.
Where can I get a yellow fever certificate in Lilongwe? Ideally, you will already have your yellow fever certificate before entering Malawi. If you do not yet have this we advise you to go to any private clinic and ask for a letter from the doctor which proves you do not have yellow fever. To be clear, you do not need the vaccine only the certificate!
Is it possible to continue our trip from South Luangwa to Lusaka or anywhere else than Lilongwe? Please follow this link to see what we offer.
Do you have any flight details to and from Lilongwe or Mfuwe? Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and ask our safari manager, Simon.
When do we have to pay deposit/balance payment? We require that the deposit payment is done at the time of booking your safari. The balance payment can be made any day up to the day of arrival. You can pay with credit card (Visa) or cash (USD/Euro/Malawi Kwacha). However, please be aware that the credit card machine sometimes does not work due to external server problems.
I live in Zambia, where can I be picked up for the South Luangwa safari? If you arrive with your own car and want to park it somewhere safe, we will pick you up at 'Just Africa' (extra charges apply). If you have an option to just be dropped at the closest possible place to our Msandile River Lodge, then please go to 'Yosefe Primary School' where we will be able to pick you up (extra charges apply).
What is the minimum number of people to have the safari secured? If only 1 person has booked the safari, it will unfortunately be cancelled with a full refund. If there are only two or three people booked on the safari different prices may apply according to the type of safari you booked.
For example the 2 day Liwonde National Park Safari Experience requires three people to depart. If only two people are booked on the safari it costs 450 USD per person instead of the normal 350 USD per person.
Is it possible to conduct the safari other than on scheduled dates? This is possible depending on availability and number of guests. Please contact email@example.com or ask our safari manager, Simon, for more information.
