An incredibly friendly little country, Malawi is hugged between Zambia, Tanzania and Mozambique. The main attraction to Malawi is its glittering Lake. This is a perfect place to relax before or after a safari in Zambia. With a relaxed pace of life, beautiful lake and idyllic landscapes it really is one of the nicest countries in Africa.
Famed for its beautiful lakeside beaches, remote game reserves and highland plateaus
HIGHLIGHTS & INSIDER TIPS
- The beaches along Lake Malawi make you feel like you are on a tropical island even though you are in a landlocked country in Africa. Lake Malawi covers a fifth of the country and is absolutely beautiful.
- Diving and snorkelling in the Lake are brilliant. The water is crystal clear and warm.
- Malawi is not a big safari destination however Liwonde National Park is a unique reserve. It is set on a river so you can see large herds of elephant, crocodiles and big hippo pods. The birding is also great!
- The tea plantations of Thyolo are a wonderfully relaxing place to visit and great for walking and learning about how tea is made.
