Welcome to Southern Malawi

To the east, on the border with Mozambique, and flanked by deep green fields of 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 wildlife reserves: Liwonde, where you can get up close to elephants, hippos, rhinos and crocodiles; and Majete, the country's only Big Five park, following huge investment and the reintroduction of lions.

Blantyre, the country’s most dynamic city, is a pit stop for restaurants and shops, while Zomba's tree-lined streets have a sepia-tinted charm.
