Malawi

African culture and hospitality at its best – Malawi is commonly referred to as 'The Warm Heart of Africa'. In recent years, elephant translocations and the reintroduction of lions and cheetahs to Liwonde put the global spotlight on this little African country.

Malawi is a wonderful, warm, friendly and welcoming country that offers visitors great scenery, wildlife parks and some of the friendliest villagers in all of Africa.

Lake Malawi is the county's centrepiece. Like an inland sea it has endless palm-fringed beaches enclosed by sheer mountains, making it undeniably the focal point for Malawi's tourists. Lake Malawi is the third largest lake in Africa (behind lakes Victoria and Tanganyika) and the ninth largest in the world.

Towering mountains, lush, fertile valley floors and enormous crystal-clear lakes are all found in Malawi. The country is a little gem in the heart of central southern Africa that offers a true African experience. Each of its many habitats is protected within Malawi's eleven national parks and reserves. Everything within the parks, from elephants to orchids, is protected.

The great missionary-explorer David Livingstone is intimately connected with Malawi's history and there are several related sites and monuments to be visited all over the country.

DID YOU KNOW?

Apes are highly intelligent primates. There are 13 ape species including chimpanzees, gorillas, gibbons, and orangutans. Apes are sometimes confused with monkeys, but unlike their smaller primate cousins, apes do not have tails and their arms are usually longer than their legs. Apes are only found in the tropical woodlands and forests of Africa and Asia.
