ESCAPE TO MALAWI

23 SEPT - 3 OCT 2018

WE'RE FULLY BOOKED

Faraway group escape to Malawi
  • Do you have an adventurous spirit and love the thought of exploring somewhere new and unexpected, with a small group of like-minded travellers? 
  • How would you like to go on an unforgettable trip to one of Africa’s most under-the-radar gems, where you’ll be thrown into new experiences and feel truly unplugged?
  • We’re hosting our very first ten-day Faraway Escape in Malawi this September, and we’d love you to come with us.

Malawi is fully booked, but sign up below to be among the first to know about the next escape. Enter your details to become one of our insiders.

WHAT'S INVOLVED

We're packing plenty into our ten-day escape. We will be...

castaways on Mumbo island
hiking in lush forest on Zomba plateau and splashing about in waterfalls
Partying on the lakeshore at the Lake of Stars Festival in Malawi
Big 5 safari at Mkulumadzi in Majete National Park, Malawi

You can read more about what's in store below. And there'll be plenty of surprises along the way too.

WHY MALAWI?

Perhaps Malawi isn't at the top of your wishlist… You might even be wondering where it is! That's one of the things that makes it so magical. It's untouched, unpolished, unplugged, ridiculously beautiful and far from most tourists' radar.

(Pssst - Malawi was recently named as one of the top places in the world to visit by The Rough Guide, Vogue and Forbes - so come exploring with us now before everybody else heads over there!)

WHY SHOULD YOU COME WITH US?

We promise you a ten-day adventure like nothing you’ve ever done before – and all you have to do is get yourself there. Hopefully that’s a tempting enough invitation in itself, but if you need more persuading, here goes…

This is your opportunity to see Malawi’s highlights in a one-off adventure that won’t break the bank. Helping our travellers have an incredible trip and make the most of their budget is always one of our top priorities, and this is no different.

This is our first escape, hosted by Faraway’s founders Helen and Al, and we’ll be pulling out all the stops to make it extra special for you. We’ve travelled to Malawi ourselves and have put together a fantastic trip with the help of our partners over there.

We’re also bringing a talented photographer along to capture all the action and share it with you afterwards. So, you can focus on having an amazing experience and leave your phone in your rucksack.

Finally, this is your chance to unplug. Really unplug. Only 10% of Malawi’s population has electricity and outages are common. So, if you’ve ever felt like a slave to your smartphone, come and get off-grid with us for a while.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

  • All accommodation (7 nights luxury, 3 nights comfortable) plus food, local drinks and all transport within Malawi
  • Activities including kayaking, freshwater snorkelling, hiking, yoga and Big Five safari (all optional)
  • Tickets to the Lake of Stars Festival (“one of the best music festivals in the world” - TimeOut)
  • check
    A professional photographer to capture all the best bits
  • check
    Extra help from us if you’d like to extend your trip and travel on elsewhere afterwards
  • check
    Plenty of surprises along the way

AND WHAT'S NOT

  • International flights
  • Visas, vaccinations and mandatory travel insurance
  • Some drinks (but you won’t need to spend much)
  • check
    Phone signal

SOME OF THE PLACES WE'LL BE STAYING

Cabins on Mumbo island in Malawi
Safari tents on Domwe Island on Lake Malawi
Beautiful starry skies at Kumbali Lake retreat on Lake Malawi
Mkulumadzi Lodge in Majete National Park

SO, WHO'S COMING?

There are only fourteen spaces on this trip.

Solo travellers, couples and small groups of friends are all welcome. Our only ask is that you’re up for getting to know some new people, having some fun and embracing the unexpected. This is Africa, after all.

There will be the two of us, Helen and Al, taking care of all the leg work and ensuring that you have the best time possible. And of course the photographer, capturing all the action along the way.

AND WHAT DOES IT COST?

£2,900

IF YOU'RE SOMEHOW STILL READING AND STIILL ON THE FENCE...

Like every step of this start-up adventure we’re on, this is something of an experiment.

We’re not trying to twist your arm by saying you might never have the opportunity to come on an incredible, life-changing trip with us again, but there’s a chance this will be the only one we ever run. We’ll leave it at that.
