        Liwonde Safari Camp is located just 300m from Bushman's Baobabs Lodge, allowing you to visit both lodges before deciding. This was what I wanted to do, and I first looked at Bushman's Baobabs to have a comparison before heading to Liwonde Safari Camp where I...More

        Very rustic bush camp on a par with South African backpackers accommodation. The boat trip on the Shire was great as was the game drive in Liwonde. Our guide was very knowledgeable and professional. We used the dormitory which was fairly basic but no complaints....More

        Hi, it was good to read your reports as we have booked to stay here for 3 nights in August. However, as we have several other places we would like to visit in Malawi we would your opinion on whether there is plenty to do - in terms of viewing birds and game, walking and kayaking, etc. It may be we will even extend staying here for 4 nights.... Cheers, Nick
