Malawi has an incredible variety of stunning landscapes. The unique rolling hills of orchid clad Nyika; the cool forested plateau of Zomba; the 10,000 feet climbers' paradise of Mulanje Massif; the broad and fertile Shire Valley. From rugged highlands to lowland plains - the scene is ever changing.


Malawi is about 118,484 sq km. About 20% of this are the waters of Lake Malawi. The neighbouring countries of Tanzania and Mozambique also have sovereignty over parts of the lake. Escarpments rise from the shores of the lake to a high plateau, and there are some spectacular mountain areas, including Nyika National Park and Mt Mulanje.


In the higher areas, the climate is pleasant, with temperatures averaging around 20 degree C between November and April, and 27 degree C from May to October. The rainy season lasts from October to April
