Drinking & Nightlife

Toasting a lake sunset, perhaps with a bottle of the ubiquitous Carlsberg Green or Chill beer, is a big part of the Malawian experience. Beach and safari lodges invariably have bars for appreciating your surroundings, while hitting the local hangouts in beach towns is fun. Unless you have a trusted local contact, in Blantyre and Lilongwe it's safer to check out the expat haunts and hotels than local nightclubs.
