      What to do in Malawi apart from snokerlling by the beach

      Malawi May 8, 2015 at 5:02 AM

      I'm going to north Mozambique and thought of including Malawi (2.5 weeks in all). I would like to visit the lake but since I am going to spend time swimming and snorkeling in Mozambique, I would like to know what else could I do in Malawi apart from snorkeling the lake, relaxing.

      I like homestays in typical villages, learning about culture.... I love wildlife too though I wouldn't want to spend loads on a safari like I did in serengeti tanzania. Maybe experience a different type of safari - walking safari or conservation camps?

      Thanks guys

    • train to Nampula (Mozambique)

      Malawi Feb 1, 2014 at 9:31 AM

      We are going to Africa in August and we planned to travel by public transport from Lilongwe to Nampula (Mozambique). I was looking on the internet for some good routes, but it was hard to find something. That's why I'm asking whether someone knows if there is a direct train from Lilongwe (or somewhere else in Malawi) to Nampula, Mozambique. I'd rather travel by train then other transport facilities, but if there isn't a train going, is it okay for me to travel by bus or something like that. Would you please leave a link to website, so I can look it up and see what train/bus I have to take.
      Thank you

      This is probably a dumb question... sorry. Hubby is to go to Malawi in January, He's never been to Africa. He's going for missionary work, very small scale. Can he take garlic bulbs in his suitcase? He will be visiting villages and would like to teach the people how to plant garlic to be used for basic infections and sicknesses. Or is seed garlic/organic garlic available in Malawi for him to buy there?

    • Does Malawi have enough to offer for up to 6-8 weeks?

      Malawi May 17, 2012 at 4:12 PM

      My boyfriend and I want to go away for around 6-8 weeks June/July/August - we want to stay fairly active (originally intending to go to india but want the sun!) - we want to live relatively comfortably on30 each per person per day (the surrounding countries in Africa don't seem to be quite as cheap) -

      To sum up we are looking for: sun, beach, cheapness, a fairly safe place, trekking and adventure. We want a taste of a beach holiday but want the majority of the trip to be active and exciting!

      We've been looking at a few forums and the general consensus is that Malawi is a great place to chill out and a couple of weeks is probably enough - will it offer enough adventure for 6-8 weeks?

      HI There,

      I am reading a few posts that say you must catch the first bus in the morning from Monkey Bay to get back to Lilongwe in daylight.

      I dont have much time to wait around for buses and want to spend 2 nights on Domwe Island. I was thinking of hiring a car. How early would I need to leave Domwe Island to get back to Cape Maclear to get in my car to drive to Lilongwe in daylight? is it even possible?

      To get to Domwe, I was going to stay at Njobvu Village down new Liwonde national park and drive up early morning to Cape Maclear. Is this possible?

      I will not be in a 4X4, but an small hire car.

      Thanks for your advice in advance!

      Moving to Lilongwe for 1 year - need accommodation

      Malawi Aug 4, 2009 at 11:46 AM


      I am moving to Lilongwe for 1 year at the end of this month. Can anyone advise on available accommodation?

      I am looking for a 1 or 2 bedrooms apartment or house with bathroom attached and other modern amenities, located in central area.

      - Can anyone advise on the average price range?

      - Just dreaming: Would it be difficult to find accommodation with a Pool (shared or not), how much, on average would that be?

      - Does accommodation usually comes furnished, or not?

      - How is the power situation these days? How many hours per weeks is it lacking? Would it be advisable to buy a generator or an inverter?

      Any other considerations?

      Thank you, looking forward to relocating!!
