Surrounded by Mozambique, Zambia and Tanzania, Malawi is not accessible from the sea. It is possible to reach it across Lake Malawi, however.
Overland, travellers can enter the country from Zambia, Mozambique or Tanzania. Indeed, Malawi is a popular staging post for overland trucks heading between Nairobi and Cape Town. Most border posts close from 6pm to 7am.
There are no direct flights to Malawi from Europe or the United States. The easiest way to reach the country by air is via Kenya, Ethiopia or South Africa.
