  6. Has anyone got a comment on this proposed itinerary for a family trip to Malawi next year? There will be 4 of us and our initial thoughts are to go early/mid June? We like this because it’s a nice mix of the bush, the beach & a chance to see something of Malawi, plus, it’s “linear” - flying into Lilongwe & out of Blantyre so avoids back tracking. We’ll have a driver for all the transfers & to take us “sightseeing” both en-route and around Zomba. Day 1: Arrive Lilongwe airport & light-aircraft transfer to Nkhotakota (Bua River Lodge for 2 nights) – game drives, walks etc, right in the elephant translocation area. Day 3: Transfer to Salima Bay (Livingstonia Hotel) ~2½hrs - on the bank of Lake Malawi & there is a cichlid breeding centre nearby Day 4: Transfer to Mumbo Island 3-4hrs including boat transfer, 10km offshore in Lake Malawi, for 3 nights of relaxation, kayaking, sailing & snorkelling. Mua Mission cultural museum is en-route. Day 7: Transfer to Liwonde NP (Mvuu camp for 3 nights) ~4½hrs including boat transfer –game drives , boat trips, walks including in the Rhino Sanctuary Day 10: Transfer to Zomba Plateau (Zomba Forest Lodge for 2 nights) ~2½hrs – the old colonial administration centre +, from the top of the plateau, “the best views in the British Empire”. Day 12: Transfer to Majete Wildlife Reserve (Thawale Lodge for 3 nights) ~2¾hrs – a final fix of game drives , boat trips and walks. Day 15: Transfer to Blantyre airport <2hrs for international flight home All feedback appreciated Thanks

  9. Here is the last report from APN. As far as I know, there was no release for March. https://africanparksupdate3.org Great news for Zakouma where the last census/Survey concluded to an increase of large game species, with more than 80 elephants calves seen since 2014. The NGO is about to share the results of Liuwa census in the following weeks. Lion cubs seen in Akagera. Wild dogs, lions and large giant eland herds spotted at Chinko. At Garamba, the situation is bleak, but APN is trying to raise further funds to reinforce staffing, and develop new tactics, to halt elephant poaching which is on the increase.
