Here the people are so friendly that the country has earned the name “The Warm Heart of Africa”. Like Namibia and Uganda, it tends to be a country that people choose for their second or third visit to Africa. So this is a country for people who know that they love Africa, and when they do visit, the warm welcome and spectacular scenery will only makes that love grow deeper.

It is at the southern tip of the Great Rift Valley, and Lake Malawi is a long “inland sea”, the last of a series of African lakes that runs from Lake Turkana, the “Jade Sea” just south of Sudan, through Kenya and Tanzania. From the northern shore of the lake, the green Nyika Mountains rise to 8,000 feet and further south, great rocky outcrops like the Zomba Plateau are superb bird watching and walking locations with a pleasant mountain climate. The Ku Chawe Inn on Zomba is a delightful mountain hideaway surrounded by walking trails, while a little lower down are the tea plantations with their old colonial houses.

Lake Malawi is 356 miles long and so wide you can hardly see Mozambique on the far shore. It is a perfect alternative beach location and combines very well with a Zambian safari. From the lovely Kaya Mawa Lodge on Likoma Island you can enjoy snorkelling and diving among the freshwater coral and iridescent fish. This location is perfect for a honeymoon safari as you will be sharing the island with just a few smiling fishermen and islanders, whose claim to fame is the enormous cathedral built by nineteenth century missionaries. Other lakeland hideaways are Nkhata Bay and Karonga where you can enjoy canoeing and a visit to Likoma and Chizumulau Islands on the Mozambican shoreline.

At the southern tip of Lake Malawi in the Liwonde National Park is Mvuu Camp, the country’s main safari lodge. The abundant water, fabulous birdlife and boating safaris makes Mvuu Camp reminiscent of the Okavango Delta, and you can enjoy sightings of elephant, lion, antelope and rhinoceros by open vehicle and on walking safaris. Like everywhere else here, the pace is gentle, the people warm hearted and the climate pleasant, so give us a call if you would like to find out more about the Warm Heart of Africa.

Regions of Malawi

Nyika Plateau

A vast rolling plateau of montane grasslands filled with endemic herbs and heathers and dotted with magnificent mountain outcrops makes up the incredible landscape of the Nyika Plateau. Resting high above sea level in the north of Malawi, cool, temperate climes offer a refreshing haven after a hot safari.

Large herds of roan, reedbuck, zebra, and eland, as well as the occasional herd of elephant, roam across the extensive moorlands, which are covered in a spectacular variety of wildflowers, including delphiniums, lobelias, gladioli and over 200 species of orchid. Dense woodlands cover the rugged foothills at the edge of the plateau where leopard, serval and packs of hyena take cover while hunting, as well as the odd pride of lion.

Meaning ‘where the water comes from’, Nyika’s untamed wilderness of rolling hills, streams and waterfalls is wonderful for trekking, mountain biking and horseback safaris and offers comfortable safari lodge-type accommodation.

Africa Exclusive provided me and my family with an unforgettable, life changing adventure. It was an ethical and authentic African experience and the treatment and service was first class. We felt like participants rather than merely tourists. Amazing. 

Steve Coogan, British Actor

Every day brought new adventures and we learnt so much about every aspect of Kenya, its people and the wildlife. Within 24 hours of leaving home we were sitting overlooking Samburu, eating a bush picnic lunch while watching elephants and getting to know our two Samburu guides. How amazing is that?!
