Learning about the culture and lifestyle is one of the most important aspects of travelling. Knowing how to interact with locals, understanding the do’s and don’ts will help you fully appreciate your new surroundings.

Our Malawi Culture week aims to prepare you well for this!

During the program, you will learn all the basics of Malawi’s local culture and history, explore the location and new surroundings, learn how to cook Malawian food, take part in the sightseeing, and more. It goes without saying that you will also get the chance to meet other participants like yourself and make new friends!

By the end of this program we believe you will have more respect and confidence as a guest of Malawi.
