Malawi is a small, landlocked country situated along the Great Rift Valley in southern Africa. Its long, narrow territory is overwhelmed by Lake Malawi, the region's premier destination. Choose one of the Malawi resorts along its banks and soak in the beauty of the landscape. Whether you're here for safaris or snorkeling, Travelocity can help you find the ideal Lilongwe vacation packages for you and your traveling party.
In South Malawi, the most developed part of the nation, check out Zomba, the country's old colonial capital. The nearby Zomba Plateau is an adventurer's paradise, with opportunities for hiking, rock climbing, and more. Mount Mulanje, locally known as the "Island in the Sky," is a great place to do some trekking or view the indigenous wildlife, including vervet monkeys and klipspringers. South Malawi also provides access to Lake Malawi National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site where you can snorkel with the vibrant cichlid fish or rent a kayak. In Central Malawi, the capital, Lilongwe, features many great hotels in Malawi for both couples and families. Take a trip to the city's Old Town, once a fishing village and now a great place to pick up some local souvenirs. The Lilongwe Wildlife Center gives you a chance to get up close and personal with the endemic wildlife! Elsewhere in the central plateau, visit the Chongoni Rock Art Area to see one of the densest concentrations of rock art in central Africa. North Malawi is the least populated region of the country and offers the opportunity to experience Malawi unfiltered. The rolling highlands feature the regional capital of Mzuzu as well as the Nyika Plateau, the country's largest national park, where you can take a safari to observe the local wildlife.
Hotels in Lilongwe are a great jumping-off point to explore the entire region. If you're looking to save on your adventure, bundle your Malawi hotels and airfare to save up to $537 when you book vacation packages through Travelocity and save your money for a safari!
