About the Country
A small, landlocked country in south eastern Africa, Malawi is famously defined by its magnificent highlands bisected by the Great Rift Valley. This is not to mention the enormous Lake Malawi, stretching for 300 miles from north to south.
The glitteringly clear mineral-rich waters in the southern part of Lake Malawi team with colourful cichlid fish and fall within the Lake Malawi National Park. Unsurprisingly, the clear fresh waters make the region a popular destination for fishing, boating and diving. Situated in the deep south are the dramatic peaks of Mount Mulanje, a veritable paradise for hikers. Further north sits the Nyika Plateau with its stunning grasslands. Although Malawi is less travelled and lesser known as a safari destination, there are plenty of unspoiled attractions, including nine national parks and wildlife reserves teeming with wildlife.
