Lake Malawi

The Jewel in the crown of the country’s tourist attractions is Lake Malawi. This vast body of fresh water fringed by beaches of Golden Sand



Malawi is blessed with rich diversity of flora and fauna and has no less than nine natural parks and wildlife reserves.


Mountains & Landscape Scenes

Malawi has a massive diversity of beautiful landscapes. The variety of scenery is a major attraction to visitors and many of the highland areas and forest reserves have good accommodation options and plenty of outdoor activities available.

The Capital

Lilongwe is divided into the Old Town (to the South) and the New Town (to the North) with the Lilongwe Nature Sanctuary between the two. The Old Town is built around the former village of Lilongwe, while the New Town (also called City Centre or Capital City) sprung up after first president Dr. Hastings Banda moved the capital from Zomba to Lilongwe. The quality of the roads is excellent compared to countries like Kenya and traffic doesn’t tend to be too much of a problem at all.

The town is very spread out, you can pick up taxis from the Lilongwe Hotel (in the Old Town) and the Capital Hotel (in the Capital City). If you’re feeling adventurous, you can take a minibus. It’s very cheap, but you will be getting very familiar with your fellow passengers. There are several routes you can take, including one that goes from the large blue bank in the new town and drops you off in the heart of the old town, next to Shoprite surpermarket.
