Malawi Highlight Take a swim in clear blue water at Nkhata Bay

This chronically laid-back lakeside town offers everything a traveller could hope for, with swimming, kayaking and diving by day and free-flowing alcohol by night. If it's beaches you are after, then you might be better off at Kande

About Malawi

Malawi lies in sub-Saharan Africa, nestled between Zambia and Mozambique. It's one of the poorest countries in the world. But! It is safe. And with safari parks, mountain treks, tea estates and a lake of fresh water which covers one-third of the country, Malawi has plenty to offer when you want to venture off the beaten track.
