This massive lake is a very important part of Malawi’s economy in terms of fishing and tourism. There are many magical villages scattered along the lakes shore and it is perfect to stay in one of these untouched regions for those wanting a less flashy touristic holiday. Keep in mind that the south is more populated than the north, but both regions’ nature and landscape still remain picturesque and intact.
Activities on Lake Malawi include boat cruises, kayaking, sailing and water-skiing on the majestic fresh water lake. There are loads of tropical fish to spot, hence being popular for those who enjoy scuba diving and snorkelling. Horse riding is also a major attraction, with sunset rides being a highlight amongst travellers.
Friendly locals, ice cold local beers, a laid back and relaxed culture is what you’re going to get when travelling to this unique setting. Daily dhow rides to exquisite venues such as Mumbo and Likoma Islands would be encouraged.
