And what else would be missing on a trip to Malawi? Probably only a safari, maybe in the small but beautiful Liwonde National Park. It´s a little gem, in the dusty mopane forest or wide plains you could encounter elephants, hippos, leopards, countless antelopes and more than 300 bird species. That guarantees lovely photographs. And a bit of moving would also be nice, so why not park the car and take a trek into the Mulanje or Nyika mountains, to marvel at the natural wealth of this little country.
The bustling heart of Africa is proud of its nature and scenery. The highest mountains go to 3000m and the lowest points to sea level. The green and lush country offers dramatic cliffs, rolling mountains, vast plains and thick forests.
Malawi is not only for the nature and safari lovers, but also for cultural experiences. Malawians are very friendly and open and celebrate lots of festivals, wearing masks, dancing and singing. And their handcraft skills are some of the finest in Africa. Many a visitor has taken their artwork home as souvenirs and artefacts. Malawians make a lot of wooden tables and statues, cane furniture and pottery. Would you like to try it yourself to make your own piece of true Malawi?
Luckily, Malawi is not a mass tourism destination, but more of a little gem in Africa!
