What have been the highlights of your time in this country? Best trips or experiences?

Inexpensive safaris. Great friendships. Enjoying the amazing weather year round. The kind Malawian people. - Jul 21, 2017
So many - the lake, Liwonde National Park, Satemwa Tea Estates, Mt. Mulanje, Zomba Mountain, Nyika Plateau, Luwawa forest lodge, Ntchisi forest lodge, Lilongwe Golf club, Lake of Stars Music Festival, side trip to South Luwanga National Park in Zambia, Kuti Game reserve, Nkohma mountain. - Oct 16, 2016
We loved some of the secluded beaches up North along the Lake and the proximity to amazing safari experiences. We found the Lilongwe community to be a real highlight with friendly, unpretentious people doing interesting things. - Aug 2, 2015
Laying on the shore of Lake Malawi feeling like I am back home on the beach in California. Getting to know Lilongwe's growing communities of artists, expats, and Rotarians. It has been a real pleasure. Traveling to South Luangwa--as many times as possible! - Sep 17, 2013
We have loved snorkeling and kayaking in Lake Malawi, going on game drives in Liwonde and South Luangwa (in Zambia), staying at the cottage in Zomba, and enjoying our big house with a big yard, and the friends we've made. - Sep 26, 2012
