Ever seen men dress up in shaggy suits made up of multi-coloured rags or little boys in straw skirts? These funky ensembles and more await you in Malawi.

Malawi’s got the world’s friendliest people (as voted by us), massive national parks, safaris, scenery and a culture so rich you can taste it (especially when you try the food). And are no crowds. Nil, zip, nada. Lake Malawi is the country’s biggest drawcard, probably because this freshwater marine park is chock full of tropical fish, cystal-clear water, and is lined with miles of white sands and the odd camp site. Nothing beats moseying along the shore, splashing about in the shallows and high-fiving the local kids as you go.

Malawi? More like Ma-wow-i.
