Malawi has the well deserved reputation as being one of the friendliest countries in Africa. It is a densely populated, landlocked country, with almost a third of its territory taken up by the stunning Lake Malawi, a sight you do not want to miss in this lifetime. The huge freshwater lake is lined with excellent heavenly beaches and filled with colourful fish as well as the occasional hippo and crocodile. There are some amazing wildlife parks for those interested in safari, as well as several hiking destinations that include Mulanje mountain and the Zomba plateau.
The Malawian people are, without doubt, its greatest asset: friendly and welcoming to a fault. Every visitor is met with a smile and the warmth of the welcome is genuine and long-lasting. With a population of a little more than 14 million, Malawi is one of the more densely peopled countries of this part of Africa. Most of the population is rural, living largely in fascinating traditional villages. Many of today’s Malawians are descendants of the Bantu people who moved across Africa and into Malawi for hundreds of years up to the fifteenth century.
