Can't say thank you enough to the Impact team for the effort that went into this amazing trip. It was privilege to work alongside the Naturally Africa team during our week there and to see what a group of like minded and driven people can achieve in such a short space of time. The run was tough to say the least, but the scenery breathtaking and the support from your fellow runners, the IMS team and the medics really helps to get you through. Being cheered over the finish line by your new found friends is also a big bonus! I will be back for sure :-).
It has been an amazing experience and very inspirational. People are very friendly and sociable, food is simple but very tasty and accomodation was basic but very comfy.
To celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary we wanted to do something very special, we chose to participate in the Malawi Impact Marathon. We joined some incredible runners from around the world for an unforgettable week. Nick, Mark, Bethany & the team do an outstanding job of organizing these events & we feel very fortunate to have had the privilege of meeting & working with the Impact Team & the other Malawi Impact runners. Don't think about it just sign up, you won't regret it for a minute! Michelle & Rob
Simply sensational. Words cannot describe how much I enjoyed this trip. Every element was incredible and a true adventure. I can recommend this wholeheartedly to anyone.
I had a fantastic trip. It was incredibly moving and worthwhile, and I felt like we made a true difference. The food and lack of hand sanitization/soap in the early part of the trip were the only drawbacks of the trip.
