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?

Africa is believed by most scientists to be the cradle for both humans and great apes. The earliest remains of the modern human species Homo Sapiens have been found in Ethiopia and date to roughly 200,000 years ago. In 1974, the skeleton of 'Lucy', a hominid who lived approximately 3.2 million years ago and has been considered a common ancestor to the human family, was discovered in Ethiopia.
