Travel In Malawi
SafarisWarm heart of Africa" four words that completely sum up Malawi for you, without question one of Africa's safest, friendliest and relaxed countries to visit and we have not even got onto the scenery and wildlife yet.

MapOur map of Malawi featuring accommodation establishments that form part of a safari itinerary, when travelling this amazingly scenic little country in the heart of Africa. Malawi is dominated by Lake Malawi but please do not forget about visiting the Malian highlands and game reserves, they are equally stunning.
MalariaMalaria in Malawi is to be TAKEN very seriously as the disease occurs in most areas of the country. Please regard the entire country as a "High Risk" zone; there are no two ways about this. Contact a doctor or travel clinic about which malaria tablets would be best suited for you and your family.
Lake Malawi Safari ReviewThe marketing tagline for Malawi is “The warm heart of Africa.” Normally, you just brush off these comments as marketing puff but not in this case. The country is warm, the people are warm and the experience you will enjoy will give off a warm glow.
Celebrating David Livingstone In MalawiThere are not many countries which have been more affected by David Livingstone than Malawi. This peaceful land is one of the most devout Christian countries in the whole of Africa where nearly every Malawian goes to bed with a bible by his side.
Restaurants in LilongweMalawi is one of the Uyaphi team's favourite African destinations. Relaxed people, safe environment, unique safari destinations where you can be equally at home in bush or beach. The capital Lilongwe, essentially a 1960's creation leaves much to be desired in terms of activities or things to do.
Mvuu Lodge MalawiAs we have previously mentioned in many articles, Malawi is a particular favourite of the Uyaphi team. Both by the friendliness and warmth of its people and by the diversity of its landscapes and fauna. On a recent trip to Malawi, we explored the southern corner of Lake Malawi, the last of the Great Rift Valley lakes.
Danforth Lodge and Yachting MalawiFollowing on from Saturdays report on Mvuu Lodge in the Liwonde National Park, we travel about three hours north west by boat and car onto Lake Malawi itself and Cape Maclear. Here lies probably the best water sports destination on the lake, Danforth Lodge.
