Head off the beaten track for some safari adventures, then relax on the beach by the stunning Lake Malawi

Malawi is probably not in your list of top 10 holiday destinations, but in recent years it has begun growing in popularity. With tourism still relatively young in this country, it is easy to create a unique family adventure that feels like a real journey of discovery. Many of Malawi’s lodges are located in a community that they give back to with special projects, and they encourage guests to get involved with these too.

Malawi is known as the Warm Heart of Africa, and it is easy to see why with its laid-back charm and friendly people. Away from the backpacker lodges, Lake Malawi offers numerous resorts and lodges that may appear rustic, but provide a lot of luxurious touches, and are great with children. Every water sport you could want is on offer, from scuba diving to paddle boarding.

You won’t find many screens or Wi Fi codes in Malawi, but there is definitely enough to keep the children entertained with a safari. The grassy plateaus of the Liwonde National Park have become a haven for wildlife as conservation efforts have brought in black rhino and elephants. Malawi is also on the border with Zambia, ideal for adding even more places to explore on longer trips.
