The marketing or "tag line" for Malawi is the "Warm heart of Africa." For once this is not hyperbole. You could not wish to travel in a more friendly, safe and relaxed country.
The Great Rift valley creates the second largest and second deepest of these great lakes in Lake Malawi, surrounded by towering mountains and lush and fertile valley floors. The lake is more a sea; it holds the largest variety of tropical fish in the world and views to match.
The huge variety of ecosystems in this small country produces stunning safari destinations, from the "Scottish" highlands of the Nyika plateau to the tropical water bound Liwonde National Park in the south of the country.
Malawi is a favourite amongst the Uyaphi team and any of the below Malawi safari itinerary options is recommended for novices or experienced African travellers.
