There is no other country in Africa whose landscapes are so decorated by the Great Rift Valley as Malawi. Spend time soaking up the sun and snorkelling on the shores of Lake Malawi – the star attraction. This inland sea offers awe-inspiring diving opportunities and a variety of water sports. Back on dry land, wildlife lovers can immerse themselves in Liwonde National Park with its impressive population of elephant, crocodile and hippo. Majete Wildlife Reserve is equally flourishing, with all members of the Big Five roaming its land. Avid hikers can ascend Mount Mulanje or the Zomba Plateau – which yields a glorious view of the old colonial capital of Zomba below.
