Malawi lies like a long, thin sliver among the surrounding countries, completely dominated by the huge Lake Malawi that glitters like a splinter of crystal along its length. The name, "Malawi" is believed to come from a native word meaning, "flaming water or tongues of fire" referring to the dazzling reflections of the sun on the waters of the lake. A fifth of the entire country is covered by water in the form of lakes and rivers.
Malawi provides a combination of a relaxed holiday on the shores of the lake, a wide range of scenery, an opportunity to meet the friendly Malawian people and a visit to the National Parks. Malawi is rich in arts, culture, pottery and the carvings reflect the everyday activities of the people. In addition, traditional dances are performed during all significant occasions. The country is known for its people with their welcoming smiles and friendly nature. The centre-piece of its tourism, though, is the enchanting Lake Malawi. Boasting a rich diversity of wildlife, fish and bird life as well as flora, the country is ideal for nature-lovers with its Lake Malawi Marine Park having been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
