Why Visit Malawi?


Within its landlocked borders, you’ll find a staggeringly beautiful geography. From dramatic Rift Valley escarpments to the rolling, green hills of the Nyika Plateau and from the sandy shore of Lake Malawi to 10,000ft peaks with deep river valleys.



Lake Malawi

The third largest lake in Africa, and the ninth in the world. With its white sandy beaches, you could be forgiven for thinking you’re on a tropical island. Its fresh waters are a natural aquarium – home to a myriad of fish, making it one of Africa’s prime dive sites. The lake is also perfect for kayaking, sailing, waterskiing and kitesurfing.

Game reserves

Four of the country’s largest reserves are protected by a conservancy trust, ensuring a thriving and diverse wildlife population. Unspoilt wildernesses and uncrowded by tourists, they offer an exceptional chance to see game. In the Liwonde National Park you’ll see elephant, hippo, crocodiles and antelope, as well as their predators, and the Majete Wildlife Reserve is home to the Big 5.


 Malawi lends itself perfectly to active travellers. From the water sports in and on Lake Malawi, to cycling and mountain biking around some of the country’s more challenging landscape. Trekking is relatively easy, or see it all from the back of a horse. The lake and rivers also offer great fishing.
