Malawi Safari OverviewMalawi is a relatively small country, dominated by Lake Malawi and the Great Rift Valley. Malawi offers a generous variety of attractions including lakes, rivers, mountains, game parks and villages. Take the opportunity to sit perched on a mountain cliff above Cape Maclear, watching the brilliant red sun sink into Lake Malawi. With hundreds of species of fish, Lake Malawi is a haven for anglers. From the islands, visitors can enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving among a myriad of colorful fish. Liwonde National Park is situated in the south of Malawi and is the premier wildlife reserve. Liwonde incorporates the huge and scenic Shire River as well as quiet backwaters and lagoons, marshes, open savannah country, woodland and hills. As a result of the wide variety of habitats, there is a great diversity of plant, animal and birdlife, possibly the best birding location in central and southern Africa.
