Call a specialist to talk about Lake Malawi now.

Malawi is known as the Warm Heart of Africa. Although less well known to tourists than its neighbours - Zambia to the west and Tanzania to the north-east - Malawi's friendly people and dazzling scenery enchant all who visit.

The country is dominated by Lake Malawi, Africa's third largest lake, which runs along part of the Great Rift Valley. Described by David Livingstone as the Lake of Stars, Lake Malawi is almost 600km long and home to more than a thousand species of fish. It is possible to visit game parks in Malawi and view elephants, hippos and zebras, but the country's greatest attraction is the lake. Along its shores you can experience traditional village life and gaze on mile after mile of perfect sandy beaches.

The lake is particularly inviting. The clarity of the water and the great abundance of marine life make it ideal for snorkelling and diving, while the absence of currents ensures it is wonderful for swimming, sailing, kayaking and watersports. [cont.]

Because of this, Lake Malawi is perfect for a beach and safari holiday when combined with the game parks of Zambia. Many visitors find a few days unwinding at the lake is the perfect way to end their holiday in Africa.

We do not have a separate website listing the beach lodges available on Lake Malawi, but do please contact us for further information on these - and indeed on other places to stay, and other activities that are available, on Malawi.
