An inexpensive and accessible country with a near-perfect climate, Malawi is dominated by wild forested peaks and the country's major attraction: Lake Malawi itself, the southernmost of the Rift Valley lakes and the most beautiful. The 500km lake, with its tropical white beaches and crystal clear water, makes the area a natural focus for vacationers. The more adventurous are drawn to the breezy highland plateaux and the lush Shire River Valley in Liwonde National Park, named Elephant Marsh by Livingstone on his exploration of the Rift Valley, supporting Malawi's largest population of crocodiles as well as hippos. Malawi has experienced considerable change since the first edition, making this an accurate and invaluable guide for all visitors.
