Warm heart of Africa
For a small landlocked country, Malawi certainly punches above its weight when it comes to diverse, authentic experiences on offer to the independent-minded, smart and savvy traveller. Nestled deep in the heart of central southern Africa, Malawi allows the adventurer to explore large stretches of endless savannah, towering mountains, and fertile valley floors and of course the enormous crystal clear lake. Often overlooked by travellers, Malawi's unspoilt wilderness is easily accessible with a myriad of cultures, fascinating customs and traditions additional attractions not to mention the most friendly people on the continent! Perhaps its biggest draw card is Lake Malawi, some 575 kilometres long and 85 kilometres wide. This beautiful Lake has been around since about 500 BC and continues to attract people searching for remote beauty and unspoilt waters. In Malawi, you can spend your days on safari in remote bushlands, snorkeling in clear waters, sailing on dhows at sunset and lazing around at intimate lodges tucked away from the tourist trail, one even on your own private island! This tiny country is a welcome relief after time spent exploring the more frequented African safari holiday destinations.
