Smiling is contagious

Hippo in Malawi wetlandsKnown as the "Warm heart of Africa", the irrepressible spirit of Malawi’s people envelopes you as soon as you arrive. Broad smiles and a lighthearted sense of mirth are part of the national character, and if you learn a few words of Chichewa, the local language, you’ll earn an even warmer reception. Malawi is long and slim with the Great Rift Valley running through it and super-sized Lake Malawi to the east. Within its borders are high peaks, swaying grasslands and misty forests. Wildlife is plentiful, and after a series of reintroductions, it’s now possible to catch sight of the classic safari Big Five.
