Lake Malawi is an African Great Lake and the southernmost lake in the East African Rift System, located between Malawi, Tanzania, and Mozambique. It is the ninth-largest lake in the world and the third-largest and second-deepest lake in Malawi.
This incredible lake is just one of the many wonders in Southeastern Africa and in recent years, Lake Malawi has received deserving recognition under the spotlight; what has been historically overlooked by the travel industry, has finally come to be a desirable safari destination. Voted as one of the Top 10 Places to Visit by Lonely Planet and named “Africa’s next go-to destination” by CNN Travel.
Expect beaches with golden sands, swimming and watersports, snorkeling and diving opportunities, sailing and kayaking, game safaris, birdwatching opportunities, and access to some of the most beautiful, traditional fishing villages.
Due to the clear freshwater in the lake, the conditions are perfect for diving. For safe and enjoyable deep lake exploration, Lake Malawi is a dream. And for those who are unqualified or just don’t have the confidence to dive, snorkeling opportunities are just as exciting – with so much to see just from the water’s surface.
Located right at the southern end of the lake sits Lake Malawi National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a natural gem that makes a home to Malawi’s flourishing wildlife including hundreds and hundreds of fish species, many of which are endemic to the region and can’t be found anywhere else in the world. The ecosystem of Lake Malawi is utterly unique.
It’s a reoccurring theme in Africa; locals are always very friendly and they are most welcoming of tourists, holidaymakers, and travelers. But in Malawi, this kind of warmth and hospitality is amplified; nicknamed the “Warm Heart of Africa” in their native language, Malawi is a country where people greet you with open arms. Children are particularly friendly and will come and say “hello” whilst it’s common for everyone to wave at you when passing.
