Malawi | Fauna Travel

Malawi

Malawi is a relative newcomer for international travelers compared to its neighbors, Zambia and Tanzania, but tourism is now developing in some of the most unique landscapes in East Africa. The country is dominated by the crystalline waters of Lake Malawi, Africa’s third-largest lake. The beguiling hills and light of the Nyika Plateau are a dream for hikers and bikers, and newly rewilded Parks like Liwonde and Majete can now offer high-caliber tented safari experiences. There are no five-star properties in Malawi as of yet, but there is plenty of experiential luxury to be had here.
