MALAWI

You might not see any Hollywood stars on Malawi’s Lake Malawi, nicknamed the “Lake of the Stars.” But, you’re sure to spot a few real ones from the deck of the Ilala Ferry cruising the lake’s sparkling waters! After snorkeling and relaxing on the popular Cape Maclear, head for the dry land of Liwonde National Park and search for hippos, elephants and zebras or horseback ride Nyika National Park’s Nyika Plateau. Hike the massive Mount Mulauje before heading to Blantyre, the country’s second largest city, for a more urban African experience. Explore the art gallery and café of the city’s beautiful Mandala House or the ambitious architecture of St. Michael and All Angels Church. Keep your eyes on one of Africa’s biggest rising stars: Malawi!
