Luxury Holidays Malawi – Feel the Heartbeat of Africa

Still an insider’s secret far from the beaten track, Malawi is different and cannot be compared to the classic safari destinations in East and South Africa. It is smaller, an unspoilt country with welcoming people. “The Warm Heart of Africa” is how the Malawi people call their country. Formerly a British colony with the name Nyasaland, Malawi is no larger than England, with approximately 15 million inhabitants. Small in size for African standards, Malawi is great in diversity: It is a charming country that is well worth a visit! First and foremost, of course, there is the vast Lake Malawi that measures a fifth of the country’s area and is speckled with countless scenic islands. Everything lies close together in the small country. Towards the West, high altitude plains and mountains topping 2000 metres of altitude are rich in wildlife and perfect for safaris. And then, the scenic sights come accompanied by authentic and supremely luxurious accommodation options. There is no need to go without essential creature comforts. The camps and lodges are set amidst stunningly beautiful nature and ensure a comfortable and memorable experience. Malawi is located in South East Africa. Malawi’s South is encapsulated by Mozambique; its North West is bordered by Zambia, the North East by Tanzania. Malawi measures 840 kilometres in length and a maximum of only 160 kilometres in width – in some places a mere 80. The climate is subtropical. The temperatures are pleasant and warm year-round. Lake Malawi features all the hallmarks of a sweet-water ocean with picturesque sand beaches and its vast size. It is the country’s lifeline and principal attraction. Its crystal-clear water makes it a perfect destination for divers and snorkelers. Above the surface, it offers kayaking, surfing, swimming and water-skiing… to name just a few. From the water to the wildlife: Malawi’s safaris promise spectacular game observation including the famous Big Five. And the safaris come in every shape and colour: Brave the swampy marshlands in a sturdy all-terrain vehicle, cruise the waterways in a boat or lace up your hiking boots for a guided bush hike. No matter your style of transportation, you may spot hyenas, leopards, elephants, hippopotamus, crocodiles and antelopes like kudus, bushbucks and Oryx. Birding enthusiasts will be thrilled by Malawi’s great diversity, the sprawling weaver bird colonies and the osprey’s piercing call. Malawi has personality, its very own identity. And it is a conscious choice not to compete with the established safari destinations like Botswana or Zambia. However, Malawi boasts charming and unspoilt diversity in great abundance. First and foremost, there are its friendly and warm-hearted people - heart and soul of the country! “Tilandirani” – Welcome to Malawi! Give us a call!
