About Malawi

Located in east Africa just south of Tanzania, Malawi does not often spring to mind when one thinks of an African safari destination. Malawi is a small, landlocked African country, and over 20% of it is covered in water. Lake Malawi is a fresh-water that is over 600 km or 375 miles long and is home to a wide range of wildlife and stunning, undeveloped beaches. It is also the third largest lake in Africa after Lake Victoria and Lake Tanganyika. Malawi’s sub-Saharan climate means it generally tends to experience warm and humid weather year-round, with some months being more wet and humid than others.

Malawi has a very relaxed and laid back atmosphere and makes for an appealing choice for those wishing for a less hectic paced holiday. It also receives little tourism and people who visit will be rewarded with a more personal and non-blasé interaction with locals. Malawi, however, does not have stellar game-viewing opportunities and many of the large game animals are not found in this small country. Malawi is often recommended as a complement to neighboring country visit such as Tanzania, Zimbabwe or Zambia.
