Malawi is an incredible country with incredible scenery but also sits 7th in the World for Netball offering a high standard of game play. With Mary’s extensive links throughout Malawi we have designed an incredible Netball Tour that includes a River Safari and Visit to Malawi’s Unesco site at Cape McClear on Lake Malawi. All trips not only offer the local economy business but also offer donations to Mary’s Foundation in order to help her develop her Netball Academies. Below is an example Itinerary for a trip.
