Africa + Indian Ocean
Understated and charming Africa…
A lovely country, populated by exceptionally welcoming people and dominated by its beautiful, eponymous lake, Malawi is a treat for travellers in search of a path less-trodden. We would recommend it for a second-time visitor to Africa as it has very diverse wildlife but not the classic big-game viewing. For keen bird-watchers it’s a must, as Lake Malawi is a major stopover point on the main migratory routes to and from South Africa.
With the Great Rift Valley running through the country, there is a fantastic diversity of landscape, from Central Africa’s highest peak, Sapitwa, to the highland plateau and stunning Lake Malawi. The third largest lake in Africa, its translucent, pale green waters are thought to host the largest number of endemic fish of any freshwater lake in the world, while its shores of amber-coloured sand offer all that you’d expect from a beach holiday, but in a far wilder setting.
