Malawi is a mixture of beautiful Landscapes, fascinating Wildlife, the alluring Lake Malawi, and rich culture that combine to make this small country such a wonderful place to visit. There are few countries in Africa that can offer this level of variety, and it comes in a small, easy-to-access, and friendly destination – a real gem.
This vast body of freshwater fringed by beaches of golden sand is not only a scenic wonderland but it provides water sport opportunities for those looking for something beyond sun, sand and swimming.
Walking & Trekking
Walking through the national parks and wildlife reserves is also popular for game viewing but more strenuous hiking and trekking is generally through the cooler, shady forests on the hills and plateaux.
Besides Lake Malawi, rivers and smaller lakes and reservoirs provide varied fishing opportunities in Malawi. There are over 100 species of small tropical aquarium fish.
Cycling & Mountain Biking
The change in scene over relatively short distances, and the varied terrain, make Malawi a great country for cycling.
Climbing & Abseiling
With its variety of mountains and highlands, it’s no surprise that Malawi has a few places that can offer some great climbing experiences.
Malawi’s nine national parks and wildlife reserves are the places to go on safari and they cover a great diversity of landscape and vegetation types, so enhancing the variety of the safaris on offer across the country.
Lake Malawi attracts a number of birds which favour either the water and islands or the particular vegetation of the shorelands. Pride of place must be given to theAfrican fish eagle, Malawi’s national bird.
Game viewing from a boat can be extremely successful as many animals are less concerned about what’s close to them on the water than what’s close to them on the land.
