Breath-taking nature in Malawi

Malawi boasts a spectacular variety of landscapes with breath-taking views at short distances and is working hard to restore National Parks and Wildlife Reserves to its former glory. Sadly, in the past many Malawians were forced by poverty to illegally cut down trees for firewood and poach wildlife for its meat, but in recent years the situation in the country has improved tremendously and by working closely together with various partner organizations, the Malawi Department of National Parks and Wildlife can be proud of some great conservation achievements. Numbers of elephant, zebra, buffalo, leopard and many antelope species are continuously growing and since the reintroduction of lions and rhinos, Malawi is now again one of Africa’s Big 5 safari destinations. Enthusiastic birders (like ourselves!) should not forget to pack their binoculars and camera with about 650 different bird species in Malawi!

Lake Malawi, the Lake of Stars

Visiting the stunning and world-famous Lake Malawi should be on everyone’s bucket list. With 29.600 km² in size it’s the third largest lake in Africa. You can’t even see the other side from most of the beaches! The crystal-clear water is home to more fish species than any other lake in the world. This includes more than 700 types of colorful cichlids, which you can see beautifully while kayaking or snorkeling at Lake Malawi. It feels like you’re swimming in an enormous aquarium!

From the feel-good backpacker’s vibe with many restaurants, bars and activities at the villages of Cape Maclear and Nkhata Bay, to the crisp white private beaches and fine dining at the luxury lodges along the lake shore and on the islands, there are enough options to bring a huge smile to everyone’s face.

About 150 years ago, the Scottish explorer Dr David Livingstone nicknamed it the Lake of Stars and at night you’ll see why!
