SAFARI IN Malawi

Malawi is known as the warm heart of Africa and is an ideal ‘safari and beach’ destination. Malawi is a long and narrow landlocked country dominated by the enormous Lake Malawi with its palm fringed sandy beaches and crystal clear water, known locally as the “Lake of Stars”. There is no country in all of Africa that has its geography so sculptured and determined by Africa’s Great Rift Valley. Towering mountains, lush, fertile valley floors and enormous crystal-clear lakes are hallmarks of much of the Rift Valley – and Malawi displays them all. The compact nature of Malawi makes it easy to get around and experience it’s very varied topography and wildlife.

Most guests coming to Malawi will want to visit Lake Malawi to relax on its beaches, enjoy some water sports and get to know real African people and enjoy a little R & R, but the country has much ...

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME OF YEAR TO GO?

The optimal time to visit Malawi is in the dry season winter months between May and October as Malawi is relatively inexpensive to visit there is little point in looking to visit in the low season when it is hot and wet and some roads particularly in the game reserves may be impassable.

DRY SEASON

The dry season months are the best time to visit for game viewing and also for the beaches of Lake Malawi. The winter climate is generally warm and sunny during daylight hours but the evening may be quite cold at higher altitudes particular on the Nyika Plateau and Mount Mulanje. Day time temperastures at lower altitudes and around Lake Malawi can be hot in the late dry season around October.

green SEASON

We would normally suggest avoiding Malawi in January and February as it can get very wet and uncomfortably hot at lower altitudes. Roads in the parks may be impassable and there is a greater risk of Malaria.

SHOULDER SEASON

Prices are ofen lower and the rains will be coming to an end in April whilst the bush remains lovely and fresh with great birding. In November and early December it may be very hot until the first rains come then the heat will be relived following the first rain storms.
