Little-visited Malawi is a real treat of a choice for a luxury safari holiday or honeymoon with arguably the most friendly people on the continent and a beguiling low-key charm.
Lake Malawi gets all the attention and rightly so; a dazzling inland sea of crystal waters teeming with tropical fish and surrounded by sandy beaches, taking up almost a fifth of the county's territory.
Combine your lake adventure with a journey to the tea plantations, or south to Malawi's beautiful Liwonde National Park for excellent elephant, hippo, and occasional leopard viewing - as well as some seriously huge crocodiles.
