Introducing Southern Malawi

Southern Malawi is home to the country's commercial capital, and receives the highest proportion of foreign visitors who venture here to scale the country's mountains and watch wildlife in an incredibly diverse landscape.

To the east, on the border with Mozambique, and flanked by emerald-green tea plantations, is mist-shrouded Mt Mulanje, Malawi’s highest peak. A short way north is the Zomba Plateau, a stunning highland area. Safari lovers can experience luxury and adventure combined, in two of the country's best parks – Liwonde, where you can get up close to elephants, hippos, rhinos and crocodiles, and Majete, the south's brightest star thanks to huge investment and the reintroduction of lions. Blantyre, the country’s most dynamic city, is a pit stop for restaurants and bars.
