Malawi has long been overlooked as an African destination. Apart from the unique wildlife and safari experiences, the country’s geographical diversity is what makes it such an amazing place to visit.
The magnificent Lake Malawi is a shimmering mass of crystal-clear water, home to shoals of colourful cichlid fish. The lake slices through the landscape in a trough formed by the Great Rift Valley and is considered to be Africa’s third largest lake. It offers snorkelling, kayaking, diving and for guests looking to relax, it is the ultimate place to simply chill out.
In the north, you will find the beautiful Nyika Plateau with its rolling grasslands and open spaces.
In the southern part of Malawi you can find the dramatic Peaks of Mount Mulanje and the mystical Zomba Plateau. These areas are perfect for trekkers and offer exotic wildlife and magically misty forests.
