Lake Malawi

Although totally landlocked, Malawi is not denied its “inland sea” – Lake Malawi. This freshwater aquatic park, fringed by beaches of golden sand, is not only a scenic wonderland, but a veritable aquarium of tropical fish providing a colourful kaleidoscopic display.

With a depth of 700 meters, Lake Malawi is one of the deepest lakes in the world, giving rise to all sorts of exciting water sport opportunities, including kayaking and diving with a cornucopia of fish species. Away from the lake, with its craggy landscape contrasting the clear waters, the park is home to various primates, birds, leopards and antelopes, making it a prime safari-destination.

Boats are available for hire and the fish will feed directly from the hand, so for those that love wildlife and adventures, Lake Malawi is a must.
