ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)

Malawi presents a true African experience in terms of scenery and wildlife. In fact, for such a narrow slice of land, it offers a wide variety of attractions. In addition, Malawi contains a variety of large mammals, including the so called "Big Five," - buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhinoceros.

Lake Malawi National Park contains the largest number of fish species of any lake in the world. In addition, wildlife is common across the park.

Nyika National Park is great for mountain biking and trekking. Large herds of antelope are common in the park that also contains one of the highest densities of leopard in Central Africa.

Liwonde National Park has some of the most scenic game viewing in Malawi and reputedly the best bird watching in Southern Africa. It's also a popular destination for enjoying a photo safari.
