The Magic of Malawi, the Warm Heart of Africa
There is magic in the stillness of the early morning, a sense of expectancy as the sun climbs high, heat settling on the shimmering sand, and peace as velvety darkness cloaks the warm evenings
You won't forget
Malawi is enticing. This Warm Heart of Africa beckons you, urges you to take time off and come on a holiday that will afford you a lifetime of memories. Come with your family -- Malawi loves children -- or come with that special person in your life, but come prepared to fall in love all over again.
You'll be enthralled by our friendly people, and welcomed with warm smiles and warm greetings -- Tikulandirani, 'Welcome' and Muli bwanji? ,'How are you?'
Wherever you go in Malawi, you will find this same warmth of welcome, an innate courtesy, and a desire to be of service to the visitor. Many Malawians speak English and, even in the more remote places, you'll find someone coming forward, eager to help you.
Land of the lake
Come first to our Lake Malawi. Here, along the palm-fringed shore, you can relax and forget for a while those day-to-day concerns you've left behind. You'll find hotels catering for all tastes, with the accent on simplicity and comfort.
The days are long and lazy, the clear, fresh water safe for swimming, and the gently shelving sands ideal for children. Watersports are enjoyed year around year round, and equipment is available for hire at all resorts. Enjoy the watersports or relax on golden beaches. Enjoy the spectacular scenery and the sparkling clear waters. Lake Malawi has over 500 species of fish offering wonderful fishing for the angler, while the drivers can enjoy the excellent visibility, safe conditions and the panorama of brightly coloured, tropical fish. Sailing in Malawi has a strong following.
The beckoning hills
Lake Malawi is set among rolling hills, some rising steeply from the water, and covered in tropical vegetation. A network of roads allow you to explore, at leisure, the various resorts along the neighbouring lakeshore, or to venture further afield into the highlands and plateaus of the Central and Northern Regions. Here are the largest of Malawi's national parks and nature reserves, home to a large variety of wildlife, and offering accomodation in charming lodges or rustic rondavels. The breathtaking vistas accross the lake into distant Mozambique as you ascend the escarpment road to the northern most resort, the Nyika, are unforgettable. You are transported into another time, another place, another enchantment. That's Malawi.
Down the South
South from Lake Malawi, a journey of about three hours by road, one comes to BLANTYRE , the commercial center, a busy thriving city, and focal point for tours into the nearby areas. Blantyre is sorrounded by MICHIRU, the rain mountain; NDIRANDE, the sleeping man mountain; the beautiful SOCHE and MPINGWE hills. Further south, MULANJE mountain raises its lofty peaks, appearing to rise sheer from the sorrounding plains, and is the haunt of mountain climbers, hikers, trout anglers and nature lovers. North of Blantyre, another mountain, ZOMBA vies with Mulanje mountain in its attractions. At its foot netsles the Zomba town, the former capital of Malawi, with its aura of colonial days. A road winds right up to the plateau where a prime situation is occupied by KU CHAWE INN, delight as a base for fishing expeditions, hiking or gently driving from one dramatic viewsite to the next.
