The “Warm Heart of Africa”, Malawi, is bordered by Zambia and Tanzania, with stunning Lake Malawi as its prized asset. In the past the only tourists who booked flights to Malawi were intrepid travellers venturing off the beaten track or those visiting as part of an educational trip. Although this still remains the case to some extent, those who have seen photographs of this stunning country or seen a documentary are eager to discover it. The reputation of the Malawians is yet another reason travellers book flights to Malawi; they’re hospitable, friendly and easy going.

Malawi’s biggest attractions are its game reserves, national parks and secluded beaches. Nyika Plateau, a game reserve in the north, is one of the world’s highest reaching a staggering 7,500ft (2,300m) and boasting plush grasslands and cascading waterfalls. At the south end of Lake Milawi along the Upper Shire River is Liwonde National Park, home to hippos, elephants, zebra, antelope and crocodiles.

The beaches along the shores of Lake Malawi are tranquil yet offer visitors an abundance of water activities ranging from snorkelling and diving to sailing. Another popular spot is Nkhata Bay in the north which has some quaint fishing villages along its shores.

Getting around Malawi

There are domestic air services from Lilongwe and a bus and train network, but train services are slow. The road network varies. Major roads are generally in good condition, but smaller roads can be very poor. In many parts of Malawi, the motola system supplements public transport. Two inexpensive ferries travel between Monkey Bay and Chilumba once a week.
