Malawi is a sliver of a country best known for its namesake lake, yet with scenic diversity, dramatic mountain peaks of Mt Mulanje, impressive Livingstonia escarpment views and wildlife reserves.
Relatively undeveloped, Malawi remains something of a well-kept secret. Lake Malawi, the continent’s third largest lake at nearly 600km long and up to 80km wide in some places, resembles an inland sea. Making up much of the country’s eastern borders, it’s home to hundreds of fish species and lined by inviting beaches that resemble an Indian Ocean shoreline. The water is warm and the swimming and diving are fabulous. Traditional fishing boats can be spotted on the horizon and islands provide breakaway options.
Beyond the lake is the Majete Wildlife Reserve, which is making an astonishing recovery after decades of poaching. Under the care of the African Park Network, they have brought back the Big Five, as well as warthog, impala, waterbuck, zebra and more. Nearby Liwonde National Park appeases elephant lovers. Accommodation in Malawi ranges from rustic camps to super-luxury lodges – welcoming, relaxed, and friendly, Malawi always delights.
