Lilongwe - Post Report Question and Answers

Is it easy to make friends with locals here? Are there any prejudices or any ethnic groups who might feel uncomfortable here?

Yes easy to make friends with locals. They are very welcoming. - Jul 2020

I expect its easier than many places, though harder than others. If you are looking for local friends of a similar socio-economic status, then sure, yes. But Malawi is one of the poorest countries in the world, some 70%+ of the population makes their living from subsistence farming -- it is hard to have friendships that can get over that. - Feb 2020
