What to expect from Malawi

Updated: Feb 11

As the 'warm heart of Africa', Malawi is a tiny country surrounded by Zambia, Tanzania, Mozambique and Botswana, and is home to some of the continent's friendliest people. Malawi is relatively small, so travelling around it isn't difficult.


Malawi's nine national parks including highlands and marshes can be explored on horseback, on a 4 x 4, on foot or by boat. With its clear waters and 400 fish species, Lake Malawi offers boaters, anglers, water skiers and snorkelers a wide variety of outdoor activities.
