Malawi - a dwarf state in southeast Africa
A trip to Malawi is something few can mention in their memoirs. The reason is simple. Many of you don't even know the dwarf state. It lies north of Mozambique, east of Zambia and is bordered to the north and east by Tanzania. The area is just under 120,000 kilometers. Around 16 million people live here.
In addition, a quarter of the area is covered by a lake. 31% are forest and scrubland, 20% arable land and 15% meadows and pastures. The country is quite mountainous as it lies in the East African rift system. Here you will find a subtropical climate. It is coolest between May and August, the hottest between mid-August and November, followed by the rainy season until April and the post-rainy season between April and May.
This mix gives the country an ingenious flora. The dry plains are covered by savannahs and sparse dry forests. You will also find closed forests in mountainous areas, as well as in the high plateaus.
The charm of the wild, untouched nature
Those who want to explore the wild, untouched country should preferably do so with a motorhome. The roads are sandy and not always easy to drive on. Hotels, motels and other accommodations are few and far between. The mobile home for rent is the first choice. The bigger cities should be on the itinerary if you want to explore the lively city life of Malawi. Lilongwe, Blantyre, Mzuzu are these cities, which also have an urban infrastructure and services in the European sense. All other larger cities are more like agglomerations around traditional marketplaces with schools and hospitals.
You also have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the traditional world of the country and get to know this life, including the craftsmanship of the Malawians.
Lake Malawi should definitely be included on the itinerary. In addition, the Kaichira waterfalls, the Mulanje mountain, the national parks Kasungu, Lake Malawi National Park, the Majete Wildlife Reserve or the Nyika plateau.
If you are in the mood for an adventurous trip through a country rich in contrasts, this is the right place for you. Think about how much time you would like to spend here, draw an approximate travel route on the atlas and book a mobile home that can cope with the gravel roads that predominate here. At World-Wide-Wheels you will find a large selection at fair prices. This will certainly make your vacation a pleasure.
