Description of Malawi safari vacation in Majete
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe care deeply about the wildlife and ecosystems in which we operate, and Majete is no exception. In fact, Majete is particularly special given that its recent history has seen its fortunes reversed remarkably under the stewardship of African Parks. We recognise that Majete's populations of bush elephant, hippo, lion, leopard, cheetah, black rhino and, now, African wild dog are of national and international importance. But we also are keen to impress upon guests the importance of some of the less-heralded species in Majete, including a wide range of antelope species, as well as rodents and bats. With all of this in mind, we will never remain at or attend a sighting that we deem to be too crowded for the animal's welfare to be assured. We will never pursue an animal that has moved away from us, nor will we remain at a sighting if our presence is causing the animal distress, or causing the animal to act unnaturally. This tour includes night drives, and we will never spotlight a diurnal animal, nor will we spotlight an injured, young or otherwise vulnerable animal.
Severe drought is rare here, but we still always ask clients to be sensible and sensitive to the local community when using water. We ask that clients limit any superfluous use of water, including long showers, where possible. We also ask that clients are conscious of the environment during their stay, and to avoid bringing litter or single-use plastics into the reserve.
PeopleIt is imperative that ecotourism delivers real benefits for local people and their communities. If this happens, it lays the platform for these communities to attach value to the ecosystems and wildlife we travel to view. This, in turn, does a huge amount to secure the future of these areas, and the wild animals that inhabit them, for future generations. With this in mind, we insist that all of our suppliers employ local people wherever possible. Therefore, guests traveling with us to Malawi should expect that all guides, drivers, cooks and housekeeping staff are Malawian.
We ask that clients are always sensitive to the culture and traditions of local people, in addition to treating local people (and indeed fellow travelers) with courtesy and respect. We ask clients never to photograph anybody without their consent. We also ask that clients dress appropriately and conduct themselves as would ordinarily be expected on such a vacation. Clients must never harass wildlife, smoke near other guests or be disrespectful to local people.
