Lake Malawi is the most southerly lake in the East African Rift valley system. The lake, third largest in Africa and ninth largest in the world, is situated between Malawi, Mozambique, and Tanzania. It is also the second deepest lake in Africa. The lake’s tropical waters teem with more fish species than any other lake on Earth.
The lake is a protected area for freshwater fish and is home to over 2,000 species of brightly colored algae feeding fish from the Cichlid family, most of which live near the surface and can be easily spotted when snorkeling.
Activities include boat trips and experiencing Malawian culture, history and wildlife.
