Lake Malawi
Lake Malawi’s soft sandy beaches lapped by the crystal clear fresh waters and shaded by majestic palms is the major tourist attraction. The lake stretches for over 580km from north to south and is 75km across at its widest point.
One of the unique places to visit is the Marine Park at Cape Maclear which was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and is home to over 1000 endemic recorded species of cichlids. Snorkeling on this part of the Lake is very much like snorkeling in an aquarium due to the numerous varieties of brightly coloured and patterned cichlids. The ideal time to enjoy this adventure is between the months of August to December when visibility can reach up to 30 metres. Read More...
