Lake Malawi.

Fondly known as the Calendar lake because it is approximately 365 miles long and 52 miles wide, Lake Malawi is the third largest and second deepest lake in Africa. It is also the ninth largest in the world and the habitat of more species of fish that any other freshwater body including 100 species of cichlids.

The Lake Malawi National Park, located in the Southern Part of the lake, was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the many endemic fish species which make it a key example of specialised evolution.

Whether you just want to chill and relax or engage in some water activities like diving, water skiing, kayaking, Lake Malawi has something for everyone. 

With its crystal clear waters and the abundant fish species, it is paradise for scuba diving and snorkelling. Affordable and accredited diving lessons are available as some of the resorts along the lake.

Lakeside accommodation ranges from family friendly resorts to romantic Island lodges to budget accommodation and the absence of big tourist resorts means it remains unscathed by mass tourism and you can enjoy her beaches in a more relaxed and low key manner.
