There's more to Malawi than its lake. This fifth edition of the Bradt guide explores the country's rolling plateaux and massifs and its five national parks and four game reserves. Adventurers, meanwhile, can discover how to kayak off Cape Maclear, hike up Mount Mulanje or cross the wildlife-rich Nyika Plateau on horseback. The book covers the country's dynamic music scene and uncovers little-visited gems such as Dedza and Elephant Marsh. And if visitors must find a luxury lodge on Lake Malawi's palm-fringed shore on whose deck to sip their sundowners – well, this book tells them how to pull that off, too.
An invaluable guide for visitors to this most explorable, affordable and tranquil of African countries, whose low-key charm most visitors find thoroughly addictive, Bradt’s Malawi provides readers with advice on planning their itinerary, wildlife and bird species identification, conservation areas, national parks and a detailed history of the country.

  • The only guide on the market dedicated to Malawi.
  • Explores remote gems such as Dedza and Elephant Marsh.
  • Full coverage of Lake Malawi's attractions.
  • Includes information on Malawi's dynamic music scene.
