You'll need to get to Lilongwe (Kamuzu) airport. The favoured route seems to be via Johannesburg and then catching the SAA or Air Malawi flight to Lilongwe. SAA does not fly to Lilongwe on Wednesdays or Saturdays, alternative routes are through Nairobi and Addis. Once at Lilongwe, you'll need to clear customs (we can have someone meet you and guide you through if you want) and then on to a light aircraft to bring you up to the island. It's about an hour's flight from Lilongwe to Likoma with beautiful scenery all the way up.
For more infomration of flights and rates get in touch and we can help out.How about jumping aboard a 1956 tramp steamer, the Ilala. Once getting to Lilongwe we can arrange for a vehicle to take you down to Chipoka, the nearest port. From there the ferry can pick you up and bring you up to the Island. It's a 36 hour trip with a few stops on the way. It's how the locals get out to the island and is always an interesting experience.Be warned it is not the most reliable form of transport and it only visits the island once a week (Fridays) from Chipoka.
