Expedition Information

African Rift Valley Facilities

Crater Lakes

Groups will be staying in a campsite, a short walk from the beautiful Masoko Lake. There are hammocks and tents, long-drop toilets and jungle showers at this camp. Living in a small Tanzanian rural community will also give students the chance of learning about local agriculture and experience living in a different culture and community from their own.

Lake Malawi

The groups are based at the Maru Lake Malawi Research Centre at Nkhata Bay on Lake Malawi. Accommodation here will be in shared rooms in buildings set in the grounds of the nearby lodge with shared bathrooms and shower blocks. There is a dining room and rest areas and a fully equipped dive centre on site set on a private beach.

Liwonde

For the final part of the expedition the students will be staying in the Liwonde Safari Camp. Accommodation will be in thatched dormitories with separate toilet and shower blocks in the camp.

General conditions

The expeditions run in the dry season when there are clear sunny days. Temperatures are likely to be 20 – 25 Celsius (65 – 78 Fahrenheit) and there may be wind some of the time making the climate fairly comfortable.
