What to see and do in Malawi


Touched by red light, the verdant fans of baobab trees give way to a view of the great brown mountains of Mulanje. By morning, the inky shapes of these mountains change color again, under the blurred orange of the gigantic sun – rising over Lake Malawi, crossed by gigantic loaf-shaped ferries that cross the water daily. Malawi is sub-Saharan Africa through and through, offering Big Five game experiences and a truly laid back culture, all of it lit by the country’s startling palette of colors.


With so much to see and do, majestic Malawi is best experienced through the eyes of an expert guide who can craft a private tour that takes in wildlife-rich grasslands, dotted with lush almond trees, or the sandy shores of Lake Malawi. On entering Majete National Park, you’ll experience the awe and wonder of the Great Rift Valley itself – a total sanctuary for wildlife, where you’ll spend days heading out on game drives and boat safaris.


The luxury lodges and resorts of Malawi combine effortless comfort with startling, panoramic views of the country’s unbearably beautiful landscapes. Forget walls and windows; these idyllic homes-away-from-home open out directly onto the Great Rift Valley, the heart of the kingdom of nature.


Because the best luxury honeymoons are romantic, tranquil, and rejuvenating, there’s no better place than the pristine shores of lushious Lake Malawi. A landlocked country, its seemingly endless shoreline is the country’s water-side hub – with private islands, hidden beaches, and romantic meals under the stars, it is a paradise you won’t easily forget.
