For those who want to discover a different Africa, authentic and unspoiled, this small country far off the usual safari circuit offers a wealth of wildlife and beautiful landscapes along with the feeling of being truly immersed in remotest Africa. Dominated by the clear waters of Lake Malawi, this jewel of a country is a paradise for animals of every sort—elephants, zebras, lions, crocodiles, rhinoceros, hippopotami, graceful kudus and sable antelopes—and a birder’s dream, with lovebirds, vultures, and African fish eagles. In the midst of friendly native people, stunning national parks and rich forests, Lake Malawi remains the leading attraction. Water-ski or kayak across its crystalline waters, undisturbed by any currents, or scuba dive below the surface to discover a wonderland of multicoloured fish which provide the livelihood of many local residents. Sunsets reflected in the mirror-like lake, the thrill of spotting big game animals in their natural habitat, and the pleasure of luxury and solitude in an unspoiled setting.
