David Livingstone nicknamed Lake Malawi: "The Lake Of Stars", when he observed thousands of fishermen lanterns shimmering on the expanse of water at night. Indeed, the 29 000 square-kilometer lake holds more fish species than any other lake in the world. When you stand on the shore, you might be forgiven for thinking you were looking out over a great inland ocean. You can enjoy countless water activities on the lake, including amazing snorkelling and diving conditions in the clear water; kayaking and sailing adventures. Enjoy bird watching on the shores and local safaris on offer in Liwonde National Park. Mix and match lodges to create a holiday that suits your style and budget.

With so much to do and see, planning a Lake Malawi holiday can be daunting, but our safari experts will help you create and refine your trip until you’re completely happy.
