General information

Welcome to the ‘Warm heart of Africa‘, welcome to Malawi!

The country of Malawi is located on the east side of the African continent. It is landlocked between Tanzania to the north, Mozambique to the east and south and Zambia to the west.

Both Chichewa and English are official languages in Malawi. In addition, there are many native languages that are very interesting to hear more about as you learn about Malawi’s history. And of course, it is always wonderful to try to pick up a few local words while travelling through a country.

One of the most well-known places in Malawi is Lake Malawi. It is the world’s third deepest freshwater lake and has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In addition to the lake, Malawi boasts 12 protected areas – National Parks, Wildlife Reserves and Nature Sanctuaries – where spotting amazing wildlife is the name of your vacation game. If elephants, lions, leopards, buffaloes, hippos, rhinos, hyenas or jackals are still on your bucketlist to see in the wild, Malawi is where you can find them.
