Malawi’s variety of attractions is its greatest asset. The mixture of beautiful landscapes and rich culture makes the tiny country such a wonderful place to visit. Make time for Lake Malawi, the jewel crown of the country. It is the southernmost lake in the East African Rift system, and the third largest on the continent. It is best explored by kayak. In just one trip you will get to see amazing remote beaches, uninhabited deserted small islands and rich wildlife. There are nine national parks and wildlife reserves.
