Malawi is a land of lakes and plateaux, divided by the East African Rift's huge ridges. The country is long and narrow, winding its way through Tanzania, Zambia, and Mozambique like a rare Nyika lizard. That long finger of blue, Lake Malawi, has to be the most distinguishing geographical feature. This belt of cobalt mountain streams, which dominates the nation's north-eastern boundary, has long been the lifeblood of the people who live here. It supports rustic bamboo settlements and historic colonial hubs carrying the names of people like Livingstone, making it a sanctuary for fishing and commerce.
Today, snorkelers and kayakers, as well as wildlife enthusiasts and others, visit the Lake Malawi National Park and its exclave islands. The story is different in the interior. There are unearthly vistas of cave-carved mountains to explore, as well as broad savannahs and lush tropical woods, all sprinkled with elephants, waterbuck, and other characteristic African species!
