Once in a lifetim

Once in a lifetime….
January 2014 we (My wife, me and another couple) did a trip through the south of Malawi. We travelled by bicycle and were supported by a SUV which was able to take our bikes. The whole vacation was organized by Malawian Style (who have recently rebranded as Crafted Africa) who did a great job. After spending a night just out of the capital Lilongwe. We were heading direction Dedza. From Dedza to Mangochi where we first saw the beautiful lake. For those who think a lake is just a lake have no idea of the beauty of Lake Malawi. This freshwater lake (3rd biggest of Africa) full of cichlids is a paradise for divers, snorkelers and many watersports. Most divers are mostly interested in salt water because of the diversity but believe me Lake Malawi gets close. It’s not my plan to give you a day by day review but beside the lake there were other wonderful highlights like the two safari parks we visited: Liwonde and Majete.
Liwondo NP
Even in January during rain season it was amazing to see such a diversity of wildlife. But even more special was the fact that we were almost alone in the park. So no queue when something special showed up. We were the only once seeing it.
We cycled a8km climb to the Zomba plateau during the hottest part of the day and our mountain bikes where not those light 29inch bikes you find now. They were basic and quite heavy. On the plateau is a nice forest and at some points you can overview the most southern point of the great rift valley.
The Moulanje mountains was another highlight. We hiked 3 days passing amazing nature with forest and waterfalls 100m high.

It is a heavy climb with lots of ladders made to over climb big rocks. We spend the nights in basic cabins where the team organized a nice dinner. The Moulanje mountains are just above the 3000 m but our hike didn’t go over the top.
After the mountains we spend the night at Huntington house. A lodge in the Thyolo district known as the Satemwa thee district. Huntington house is the old colonial house reinstalled as a wonderful lodge and perfect to relax after staying tree days in the bush.
On the way back we had two overnights at two idyllic islands on the lake Mumbo and Blue Zebra. Where we were able to enjoy the wonderful lake once more. Swimming, snorkeling, kayaking, hiking and relaxing was on the program.
As I m a traveler who traveled to more wonderful countries in Europe, South America, Asia and of course Africa (What was always my favorite continent) Malawi gave me a special feeling. The beauty, the friendly people, the diversity and the magic lake. I had a feeling I could live there forever. In 2018 I went back to see if there where possibilities and yes, I bought some land at the lake in last year I started building my own lodge along the lake in Leopard Bay. Joma Adventure Lodge will be opening by the end of the year. For those who are interested, I don’t have a website yet but you can follow us on Facebook on the page ‘Joma Adventure Lodge – The construction’

I will always be using crafted Africa to plan my trips. This was a trip of a life time! It far exceeded my expectations, and honestly there is nothing I would change about my trip! We were so well taken care of & the attention to detail is on point. Incredible.

Wonderful experience!

Mike and the team organised a fantastic trip to Mozambique which was perfectly tailored for me. They were friendly, responsive and enthusiastic to create an excellent experience. The accommodation was wonderful in beachfront boutique hotels. The transfers and other travel arrangements were seamless.
The diving was world class along with amazing whale and dugong sightings. I cannot wait to get Crafted Africa to organise my next adventure.

Experience of a lifetime, the most perfect itinerary!

‘The Warm Heart of Africa’, Malawi, is a truly special place. We’re so glad we discovered this wonderful country with thanks to The Crafted Africa team. They are exceptional; knowledgeable, experienced and beyond helpful. They planned the perfect itinerary for us which ran seamlessly. Our transfers always arrived with plenty of time to spare and were very comfortable. The accommodation they selected was incredible!

The trip was the perfect mix of wildlife, adventure and relaxation. We’ll never forget our evening sipping sun downers on the river while watching elephants cross the water as well as many other perfect moments.

Can’t recommend this team enough and highly recommend booking with them!! Thank you

Amazing experience

We requested a trip to include a little of everything and we received an itinerary which was exactly that. We were looked after from the moment we were picked up from the airport until the moment we were dropped off again. All details of the trip including food were taken care of for us. Couldn't fault the food or the accommodation. The whole experience was amazing and good fun. This was a trip that will never be forgotten.

unique experience

I was very lucky to have experienced the safari in Zambia. I saw things i would never see again in my lifetime, met a lot of friends along the way from different parts of the world and never seen sunsets so spectacular in my life and full variety of wildlife. The lodges were very beautiful and unique, the tour guides were amazing, knowledgeable and friendly people. Highly recommend booking through Malawian Mike

A once in a lifetime experience that Crafted Africa ensured was delivered, expertly.

Mike and his crew of experts, were helpful, friendly, and guided us through the maze of options, selecting the perfect camps and lodges for our two week adventure in Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania and Zanzibar. There is no doubt in my mind that they deliver on every promise. Truly memorable experiences were enjoyed by all our party. Could not have been in better hands!
