The perfect safari holiday to Lake Malawi

Known as the 'Lake of the Stars', Lake Malawi is nature's greatest aquarium, surrounded by beaches and forests

It’s a mistake perhaps to think of Lake Malawi as a “region” of the country. Africa’s third largest lake, it’s a vast trough that stretches from the very northern tip of Malawi to the south. At the southern end of this vast inland sea, focused around Cape Maclear, lies Lake Malawi National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the world’s first freshwater national park.

Lake Malawi National Park is small at only 94km², but it encompasses one of the most beautiful sections of the lake, whose crystal clear waters protect a veritable aquarium of freshwater tropical fish, as well as a significant stretch of inland territory around the forested headlands of Cape Maclear, where baboon, hyrax and antelope can be found. Also within the boundaries of the park are several islands, including the beautiful Marellis.

Naturally, this is one of the more popular sections of the lake, and contains a mixture of upmarket lodges (mostly on the private islands and more remote corners of the shore), family-friendly beach resorts, and backpackers’ stops.
