Your 2018 adventure in Malawi with Kyeema Foundation.

Make your holiday count to empower lives. 

Make their story part of your story.

How can a chicken be a stimulus package?

Find out first hand in Malawi on KYEEMA’s first ethical tourism package in partnership with Crooked Compass. You will have the opportunity to visit the villages where the work we support is having the greatest impact. With the aid of interpreters, talk with the locals yourself and understand the flow on effects in people’s lives of protecting their chickens from Newcastle disease.  You will experience the (sometimes chaotic) joy of vaccinating chickens with the village children who love to help catch chickens, and visit the place where the vaccine is locally produced. And of course, you will also spend time exploring the biocultural diversity that the country is known for. All the time knowing that your money is contributing directly to sustainable economic and health improvement for the most vulnerable in this country – indeed going the last mile.

Malawi is the Warm Heart of Africa

Apart from the legendary Malawian friendliness, what captures you first about this vivid country is its geographical diversity. Slicing through the landscape in a trough formed by the Great Rift Valley is Africa’s third largest lake: Lake Malawi, a shimmering mass of clear water, its depths swarm with colourful cichlid fish. Liwonde, in the southern region of Malawi, is Malawi’s premier nature reserve. It is a haven for wildlife, thanks to the Shire River, the lifeblood of the park. Ntchisi Forest Lodge sits at the foot of one of the last remaining indigenous rainforests in southern Africa. This area of outstanding natural beauty is surrounded by rolling hills covered by subsistence farming and dotted with traditional villages. The country is widely predicted to be the next big safari destination.
