The third largest lake in Africa, taking up a fifth of Malawi’ s total land area. Sometimes known as the ‘calendar lake’ (from its imperial dimensions: 365 miles long and 52 miles wide, the lake is freshwater and home to more than 500 species of fish – more than in North America and Europe combined! The clear waters of this lake are also one of the world’s premier fresh water dive and snorkelling spots and the major tourist attraction – the water being broadly safe for swimming. Many water sports are available – including fishing, water skiing, windsurfing and sailing.
Malawi’s rainy season is during summer, from November to April , winter time – from May to October, is a lot drier. Winter can be quite chilly high up on the northern Nyika Plateau but down at the edge of Lake Malawi you can expect warm, sunny and dry days – great beach weather!
Wildlife found in and around Lake Malawi or Nyasa includes Nile crocodiles, hippopotamus, monkeys, and a significant population of African fish eagles that feed off fish from the lake.
Botswana has one of the highest desities of African cats. The endangered Wild dogs can be spotted in several areas aswell.
