Why visit Malawi?

It’s warm and friendly people

Untouched beauty and stunning scenery

Scenic Lake Malawi - The world’s ninth largest lake, which despite its size, has no currents and no tides

Lake Malawi contains more species of cichilids than all of the lakes in North America put together

Excellent snorkelling and scuba diving in the Lake

Nine National Parks – Good game viewing, including the 'big five' and excellent bird watching

400 species of orchid and other wild flowers

A cultural heritage largely untouched by civilisation


Malawi’s lake shore stretches some 500km. It is a paradise of small communities, sandy shores and small islands.

Incredible diversity of experiences can be had in a such a small area – you could be on a mountaintop with the fog rolling ominously over the peaks in the morning, and on a boat watching a herd of elephants attempting to cool themselves down in the river in the afternoon.
