Called ‘the warm heart of Africa’, Malawi is all sunny days and sweet breezes that caress your face as you enjoy a cold drink on the shores of Lake Malawi. But it’s not just the country’s physical temperature that lures visitors to its land, it’s said that people of the land are some of the kindest you’ll ever meet. Don’t be surprised when locals greet you as though you’ve been friends for years, or when curious kids come over to ask what you’re up to – it’s just in their nature to be this friendly.
There’s plenty to do in this picturesque country, but if you’re after a relaxing stay, then be sure to spend a few days at Lake Malawi. It runs through ¾ of the country’s eastern border and is the ninth largest lake in the world. Here, you can catch a tan, go for a swim and enjoy the groovy music that is often found in lakeside cafes along its border.
One of the top attractions in the country is Mount Mulanje, near the city of Blantyre. Those who spend a few days hiking the beautiful mountain’s summit are always completely amazed by the experience. Again, it’s the friendliness and hospitality of the guides and porters that steal the show, but the views from the top are something to behold.
For a chance to see some wonderful wild beasts, add two of the country’s favoured nature reserves to your itinerary: Majete Wildlife Reserve in Chikwawa and Lilongwe Wildlife Centre in Lilongwe.
