The Nyika Plateau is unlike anywhere on the continent. The breath-taking scenery is the main draw, but the wildlife-watching is also good with over 100 mammals hiding in the hills. It’s a completely different safari experience to any you will have had before, with game drives, walking safaris, mountain bike adventures and horseback safaris. End your route with some time on Lake Malawi's Dombwe Island; a tranquil hideaway, there are plenty of activities both above and below the water to enjoy.
