Malawi is one of the safest places to visit in Africa, and that, together with the variety of its stunning wildlife opportunities, beautiful landscapes, friendly and relaxed cultural interactions and beach-fringed lake, makes the country a top destination for families. The country has an excellent and reliable tourist infrastructure, an impressively large number of activities on land and in the water, and with its compact size, is very easy to travel around without the need for long journeys. All of these features, plus the friendliest, most welcoming people on the continent (who just love children!), and a majority of lodges and hotels who expressly cater for families, makes this an ideal country for family travel.
