Malawi, known as the ‘warm heart of Africa’

A world away from traditional safari destinations like Kenya and Tanzania, Malawi offers something different

Malawi, known as the ‘warm heart of Africa’, offers a unique safari and lakeside beach holiday, very different to the traditional safari destinations such as Kenya and Tanzania. Accommodation in Malawi ranges from luxury boutique lodges perfect for honeymooners and families, to charming rustic guest houses suitable for all budgets.

Lake Malawi is situated in the heart of the country, and is the third largest lake in Africa, at 365 miles long and 52 miles wide. It offers several water-sports activities on its shores, such as wind-surfing, sailing, diving, cruising, and fishing, along with golden sand beaches for those wishing to just relax and take in the scenery.

Liwonde and Majete National Parks are the main safari destinations in Malawi. Wildlife includes large numbers of elephants and the river attracts countless hippos and crocodiles. Antelope include kudu, sable and bushbuck. There are also leopards and hyeena. Those looking for diverse bird life will not be disappointed.

To the north of Malawi is the Nyika National Park. It extends across the great plateau and is best visited in the rainy season when over 200 types of orchid are in flower. Nyika National Park is a great destination for walking or bike destinations, as well as the more traditional modes of transport. The park has a large population of Leopard, as well as Zebra, Eland and Roan antelope.
