With over 10 different ethnic groups, Malawi offers an exciting mix of cultures, and the warmth and hospitality of the people is hard to beat. It’s a country that regularly faces droughts and flooding, resulting in agricultural difficulties and, consequently, food shortages.
Numerous active projects are helping communities of this beautiful African nation work together to raise living standards. You’ll get the opportunity to work alongside these communities, contribute to existing projects and use your skills to help educate others.
Your trip concludes with a wildlife safari where you’ll have the opportunity to spot lions, elephants and rhino in their natural habitat.
