The Best Safaris in Malawi

On a safari in Malawi, there are many beautiful displays of nature to behold;  forests, mountains and rural villages, but Malawi is best known for the amazing Lake Malawi, or 'Lake of Stars,' as explorer David Livingstone named it, an enormous fresh water inland sea. While on a Malawian safari, travelers will find the rustic resorts on the lakeshore to be the ideal hideaway to kick back in the sand and watch the sun sink into the lake, as fishermen return to shore with the day's catch. These are just a few of the many reasons to place a safari to Malawi at the top of the travel wish list.

There are many small rustic resorts along this fresh water lake where you can kick back on the sand, and enjoy the perfect sunset over this lake. Malawi will offer you the perfect sub tropical climate, allowing you ample time to soak up the sun and work on that tan. Lilongwe is the largest city in Malawi, as well as the capital city. Malawi plays host to just over 12 million people, with English and Chichewa being the main languages.
