CAWS pushes ‘A Tree with Every Trip’
Guests travelling with CAWS will now have the option of adding USD 2 to their final travel bill, which will fund the planting of a tree in Chintheche, Malawi. All trees will be planted and monitored by Root to Fruit, the project has achieved a seedling survival rate of 75% and all operations are handled by local community members. Planting trees is one of the most efficient ways to offset carbon emission that might be generated from your travels. A single tree sequesters 200kg of carbon over 10 years, returning valuable oxygen to the planet.
This add-on will not only help to minimize the environmental impact of the journeys we organize, it will also help to combat climate change and aid the reforestation of Malawi at large. You are welcome to access the e-flyer, agent note and press release.
New Star Beds and refurbishments in the pipeline at Mvuu Camp and Lodge
Exciting plans are underway for a new lounge and dining area at Mvuu Lodge that will enable guests to relax and unwind in an interesting new setting, overlooking the tranquil lagoon which flows into the Shire River. We will also be constructing a new Star Bed on the southern floodplains, which will serve as the ideal addition to any stay at Mvuu Lodge.
The old J&B Chalets near Mvuu Camp are also getting a complete makeover with new décor, rebuilt bathrooms as well as a new dining area and lounge between the two chalets. The décor is being designed to tell the story of the chalets and how they have served as a base for guides, officials and conservationists who were involved with the black rhino conservation project in Liwonde. The chalets will be the ideal spot for small groups and families who want a totally private experience at Mvuu Camp.
New Trails at Chelinda
We’ll be introducing a series of new trails for guests visiting Chelinda Camp and Lodge in Nyika National Park shortly, namely the Sangwala Trail and the Nkhonjera Trail. Both trails offer guests the chance to trek across the spectacular terrain and montane grasslands of Nyika, via the park’s dams, streams and patches of forest. Both are relatively short trails and guests have to be reasonably fit to complete the treks.
