Southern Malawi 

It is Malawi’s variety of attractions that is its greatest asset. Whilst Lake Malawi is certainly the crown jewel of Malawi’s tourist attractions, this is not a country of a singular attraction.

It is the mixture of beautiful landscapes, fascinating wildlife, the alluring Lake Malawi and rich culture that combine to make this small country such a wonderful place to visit.

The magnificent Lake Malawi is a haven for boat activities such as sailing and water sports as well as having some of the best freshwater diving sites in the world.

The country is elongated north-south along the line of the Rift Valley in which Lake Malawi sits.

The southern part of Malawi is the most populated with the capital city Lilongwe high up on the Central African Plateau. Blantyre, the commercial capital of Malawi and Zomba, the old colonial capital are south of Lake Malawi.

Southern Malawi is home to a number of national parks including Lake Malawi National Park and Nkhotakota Wildlife reserve as well as forested highland areas, including Zomba Plateau and Mount Mulanje.
