Malawi, the 'Warm Heart of Africa', is a fantastic tourist destination. It offers incredible scenery and wildlife, beautiful beaches on Lake Malawi, and perhaps the most friendly welcome you'll get anywhere in Africa!
The tourism industry in Malawi is in a period of continued growth, with new luxury hotels and resorts, established and growing game reserves, and an increasing network of good quality roads.
Malawi is now home to The Big Five (Elephant, Rhino, Lion, Buffalo and Hippo) and has nine national parks and wildlife reserves. Whenever or however Malawi is described, it nearly always comes with the subtitle of 'The Warm Heart of Africa'. Wildlife, lake, and landscape are key features Malawi has to offer but, most importantly, Malawi is safe and welcoming, home to some of the most friendly people in the world. Malawi offers a rich, genuine, cultural experience that gives visitors a feel of the real Africa.
Tourism for Malawi already provides income for thousands of families. A recent survey by Wildneress Safari showed that over 1,500 individuals benefit from the income paid to the 150 Malawians employed by the company. This is just a small example and doesn't include the community projects, charity work, volunteering projects and long terms community development initiatives, but quite clearly proves that as tourism grows, the rewards could be exponential for the country as a whole.
