Malawi, less visited than its African neighbours, is a less crowded, geographically distinct travel destination. The Great Rift Valley cuts through this country of highlands, tea plantations, elevated plateaus, and a massive lake. With its beaches, fishing boats, and scuba diving, Lake Malawi feels more like an inland sea. It has sailing and water skiing and a plethora of outdoor activities. You can kayak over to Mumbo Island for some private time under the sun, or you can relax on the serene sandy shores with reggae music playing in the background.
Malawi, despite its small size, is rich in experiences. Begin by contacting an Enchanting Travels expert, and we will bring the best of Malawi to you. Marked trails on revered Mount Mulanje offer both easy hiking and challenging climbing. The Likhubula Waterfalls and icy rock pools are just two of the scenic outdoor spots in these granite mountains. A visit to Liwonde National Park, located on the Shire River, includes boat and jeep safaris to see elephant herds, birds, hippos, and crocodiles. The elevated plateau of Nyika National Park is home to many zebras, bushbucks, and antelopes, as well as horseback riding and fishing excursions.
Glorious sunsets are inextricably linked to this country, whose name means “Flame of Fire,” a nod to the vibrant red-orange splash that fills the skies above Lake Malawi.
