Flag of Malawi


The Republic of Malawi (formerly Nyasaland) is a densely populated country located in southeastern Africa. It is bounded by Zambia to the north-west, Tanzania to the north and Mozambique surrounding it on the east, south and west.

The tourist brochures bill Malawi as 'the warm heart of Africa,' and for once the hype is true. Malawi's scenery is varied and gorgeous and Malawians tend to be extremely friendly toward travellers. Nature lovers will adore the national parks and game reserves, mountain hiking and plateau trekking.

The massive Lake Malawi is great for diving, boating or just lazing about. The country's reliable transport and compact size make getting about a breeze, and a broad range of activities and accommodation makes it possible to have a great time whether you're watching the pennies or blowing the bank.
