Chigoli Tours



On the following pages you will find information about the most exciting and adventurous football tours ever, deep into the warm heart of Africa. These holidays are for adventurous footballers, wanting something more than lying on a beach for a week out of a holiday. You’re going to have to be up for it, ready to experience Africa and wanting a holiday off the beaten track.


You will tour an amazing, beautiful and inspiring country in the heart of Africa playing a series of matches that you will never forget. The Chigoli Team have put together a unique tour, packed with as much action as you want and as much tranquillity as you can absorb and the special privilege of mixing with Malawians – the most warm hearted people in Africa. It will be a cracking holiday, a great tour and a real life changing experience.


Unlike other commercially based tours, money raised supports football development in

Malawi through our NGO partners such as Chigoli (link below) and Play Football Malawi as well as the many communities we engage with.


Malawi is a truly inspirational country. For all the videos and photos I can show you it is impossible to

communicate just how alive and vibrant it is, in a uniquely African way. I do hope you will join us to experience how it feels to be in the heart of 500 children celebrating with us when we score or to meet many of the unforgettable characters the tour interacts with. Memories to last a life time.


Africa awaits!

Tour founder speaking at AFEX along side FIFA about football in Africa (2013)

Chigoli Tours have been introducing students and young professionals to Africa through sport (mainly netball and football), broadening horizons and deepening understanding among all who have visited since 2011. Chigoli Tours acquired and took over African Football Tours in July 2015, and takes pride in and is passionate about sport as a great way to experience other cultures.


Join one of our life changing trips for sport, safari, natural beauty, incredible cultural exchange and full immersion in the friendliest country in Africa - Malawi.


Our tours are open to all players, of any ability, and both female and male players are welcome.
