The locals of Chintheche

The locals of Chintheche

For all Malawi’s spectacular scenery, its people may well be the country’s greatest asset. Good-humoured and genuinely welcoming, spend some time around Chintheche and this is immediately apparent. A school visit can be a boisterous affair, with children eager to accost visitors, while gaining an insight into how communities live in Malawi can be moving: this is one of Africa’s poorest nations, yet the ties that bind are strong, and the feeling of togetherness in villages and the tangible warmth of locals are often the lasting impressions one takes from this beautiful country.
