Surrounded by Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania, Malawi is the “warm heart of Africa”. It may be  small in geography but it’s large in appeal. Slicing through the landscape in the Great Rift Valley is Africa’s third-largest lake, Lake Malawi. A nation of fisherman – despite being landlocked – owing to the clear waters of Lake Malawi; it boasts verdant highlands and tropical forests, undulating valleys and exceptional game viewing within its national parks. Malawi is still an unknown gem in the southern African crown.
