With very little tourism in Malawi, and a lot of farmland and exceptionally friendly people, Malawi holidays can be very relaxing and special.
The main attraction is Lake Malawi, a fresh water lake, covering almost 30,000km² which is home for a variety of endemic cichlid fish species. This is the venue for relaxing beach holidays as well as some exciting water sports, in the heart of Africa. Meanwhile, away from the lake, there are many options for safari holidays on Malawi’s game reserves, and even some hiking trips.
Look through our suggestions for trips below, then call us and let us help you to create an individual Malawi holiday just for you.
