Although small in size, Malawi is not without its various attractions. One of the largest and popular attractions that appeals to visitors from all around the world is the great lake of Malawi that runs alongside the major part of the country. Apart from this attraction, visitors can choose from the several national parks scattered around the country. Some of the most popular natural attractions include the Liwonde national park, Lake Malawi National Park, the Nyika National Park, the Kasungu National Park and the Lengwe National park. For a more exciting venture, the Chongoni Rock Art Area makes for an ideal visit, especially if visitors would like to view the exceptional art work of civilization in the Stone Age era.
The Malawian cuisine revolves around the single staple of maize, whereas tea and fish are the popular elements of most of the cuisines here. Visitors who are craving a traditional meal can always try the nsima which is dipped in a variety of different stews known as relishes. These mouthwatering stews can range from vegetables to meat infused. Visitors can also dine on the delicious kachumbari and kondowole which is also popular amongst the locals.
For a small country, Malawi has a quite remarkable array of activities to offer its visitors. Go diving or snorkeling amongst the iridescent corals and marine life you might be lucky enough to come face to face with a curious fish. Trek along the trails in the several natural parks or even tour them to experience the natural flora and fauna at its best. If that does not suit your taste for adventure the exciting safaris in the wilderness will do the trick.
