Malawi is one of the land locked countries in the southeast Africa surrounded by the Safari countries of the Zambia, Mozambique and Tanzania and the great Malawi Lake. The Geographical variation of the particular region with the low lands and mountains, plateaus, and lakes make Malawi a wonder place to travel. The country is indeed small and poor yet being located on the shores of the very mighty lake and with the Great Rift Valley running through the middle makes various options, such as Malawi self drive safari and others truly tempting and attractive for the traveller looking for some Adventure Travel in the continent of Africa.
Since the country is very small and elongated, there are three distinct regions; North, Central and South. All the three regions have indeed great geographical diversity. Hence the Malawi self drive safari tours can be taken to combine the elements of landscape, wildlife, lake and culture can be undertaken in each of these regions. Such a combination would give a completely different experience in each of the three regions.
Although the economy of Malawi is largely based on agriculture, a lot of emphasis is being given to tourism, as well. In such a small country as Malawi, there are more than 70 airports. Roads are being built, and other infrastructure developed to make the western travellers feel quite comfortable. Since the country is quite small; only 900 kms long and with widths that are varying but never more than 300 kms. This makes it possible for an avid traveller to opt for a Malawi self drive safari and experience the whole country in not a very long period of time. The enriched experience would be still very interesting and just as exciting as most adventure travel in Africa.
The support for taking an enjoyable but safe Malawi safe drive safari across the whole country is certainly given by different government agencies and travel and tourism companies. The large and strong Utility vehicles can be hired maps and guides are also available; camping sites have been developed, and medical aid, repair and maintenance of vehicles is found all over the country. Since English is the official language, it is not difficult for a westerner to get around. Malawi offers the best of Volunteer Africa in a short span of time and a considerable shorter distance in terms of travel.
