Costa Rica Traverse

The Coast to Coast Team ran a first rate operation. Would I do it again? Yes! I would have turned around on the beach and set off to do the full traverse right there and then.

Malawi

Take an adventure holiday in Malawi with World Expeditions, one of the world’s leading travel companies

Commonly referred to as 'the warm heart of Africa', the small landlocked country of Malawi offers travellers game reserves, national parks remote trekking and the impressive Lake Malawi.  The Lake, a beautiful fresh water lake stretching approximately 500km along the country's eastern border is the third largest fresh water lake in Africa and the eighth largest in the world. Whilst Malawi encourages tourism, the relatively small number of visitors has meant infrastructure is basic. Much of the country remains mostly untouched with beautiful lakeshore beaches, highland wilderness areas and some of the friendliest people in Africa.
