"Philip Briggs presents the eminently visitable Malawi in a way that avoids the patronising and disdainful tone of so many other guides dealing with developing countries. His affection and respect for Malawi and Malawians shines through the most mundane advise. . . . Reflects an approach to travel which delights simply in being in a place, rather than crossing off the sights." --Mail and Guardian, South Africa
From the Back Cover
Malawi--"the land of the lake"--is a dream destination for any traveler. Lush vegetation spreads out from the calm shores of Lake Malawi, developing into rolling plateaux and massifs that are ripe for exploration. Nature lovers have no fewer than five national parks and four game reserves to explore, while adventurers can kayak off Cape Maclear, hike up Mount Mulanje and cross the wildlife-rich Nyika Plateau on horseback.
From breathtaking sunsets over the lakes to the stunning birdlife and grunting hippos of Liwonde National Park, the hidden treasures of this English-speaking republic are revealed by Briggs and Bartlett. Prepare to be charmed by a country that lends itself perfectly to easy, independent travel.
