Nestled between some of East Africa's blockbuster destinations is Malawi, a country small in geography but large in appeal.
Malawi is full of contrasts, the most obvious being that it's a nation of fishermen - despite being landlocked - owing to the clear waters of Lake Malawi. It boasts verdant highlands and tropical forests, undulating valleys and exceptional game viewing within its national parks. Malawi is also home to some of the continent's friendliest folk, meaning it's a country well worth considering on your African agenda.
