Approximate Airfare Cost $1,200.  

Everyone is responsible for booking their own airfare in mid- February.  We are looking at a flight departing from O’Hare (layover in Ethiopia) and a return flight into O’Hare (layover in Ethiopia & Washington DC).  We’re still checking in to see if a group flight rate may be available.  

  • Once we arrive in Malawi, we will be traveling as a group of 20 with a driver that speaks both the native language and English.  We will travel in a 20-person van.  Malawi road travel time is slow; we may spend up to 4 hours in the van traveling from one area to another.
  • The link provided will show where we are staying and a general map of our travels.  PLEASE DO NOT BOOK ON THE WEBSITE.  This will be done at a later time.
  • The weather is in the Malawi “dry-season” and temperatures will most likely be in the 70’s.
  • You will need to schedule your own immunizations.  There are many options to get them done (Walgreens, home clinic, travel clinic, etc.).  The basic recommendations for vaccinations for Malawi for the short-term traveler are Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Tetanus and Poliomyelitis. 
  • Currently, we have spots available for 14 people.  There are 3 CAMM Board members traveling.
  • We would need to book our air by mid-February, 50% of the lodging/activities will be due in March and the other 50% will be due 8 weeks prior to travel.
  • The total price for the trip not including specified meals, personal items and activities is approximately $3,500.
