About Malawi

Malawi offers abundant beautiful scenery, the chance to interact with some of Africa’s friendliest people, small wildlife reserves and Lake Malawi.

LIWONDE NATIONAL PARK Diverse habitats are a plus here. Wildlife includes elephant, sable antelope, waterbuck, hippo, lion and leopard. Game drives and boat rides on the Shire River are available.

NYIKA NATIONAL PARK The Nyika Plateau is wild, remote and spectacular area of rolling montane grasslands interspersed with pockets of evergreen forest. Take a walk in the park’s eerie montane forests, and keep your eyes peeled for leopards on night drives!

LAKE MALAWI You’ll see an enormous variety of tropical fish as its clear waters are wonderful for snorkeling, scuba diving, sailing and fishing. The remote Likoma island is the best place to experience this Great Rift Valley lake.
