The Story

Set adjacent to the Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve, Rafiki Safari Camp is the perfect base when exploring the wilderness of Malawi. Nkhotakota Wildlife Reserve is something of a birding mecca and this newly revitalised game park is now stocked with some of Africas favourite large vertebrates, making your safari holiday complete.

Rafiki Safari Camp boasts spacious Safari Units consisting of luxury tents, as well as, full camping facilities. A beautiful Boma to while away the evenings, listening to crickets chirping, night-jars calling and maybe the occasional elephant making themselves known. Close to the famous Lake Malawi, this well-located Safari Camp offers fully equipped self-catering facilities.
