Malawi, also known as The Warm Heart of Africa is situated in the Southern part of the African continent, surrounded by Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. While it is a landlocked country, Malawi is known for the spectacular freshwater lake that runs through its veins. It is arguably one of the most impressive lakes the Southern hemisphere has to offer as it is the third biggest lake on the continent. With freshwater lake comes plenty of charms including a splendid array of marine life and spectacular views.
Visiting Malawi will give you the impression that you have stepped into a little paradise, with its arrangement of palm trees and sandy beaches against a backdrop of azure skies and majestic mountains covered in luscious rainforest. Water sports like snorkelling are vastly common in the warm waters of Lake Malawi. Here, you are able to explore and get a good view of the coral reefs.If you are a diver, Lake Malawi should definitely appear on your bucket list. The lake also gives you an opportunity to go yachting from island to island and perhaps even visit the small fishing villages and coves that are inaccessible by road.In Malawi, you can go from a sunset cruise to a safari sunset overnight when you visit South Luangwa National Park and Liwonde National Park which is only three hours away from the lake. Your trip will not be interrupted by overcrowding as The Nyika Plateau is also another incredible option that offers plains to game view the famous Big Five, among other mammals such as the roan antelope.
