Southern Lake Shore

Lake Malawi National Park was the very first freshwater national park declared as a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1984. This status protects the diversity of endemic fish as well as the aquatic habitat. Although the Lake covers one-third of the country, the National Park is only 94km2 including a land area around the cape, some islands, and of course, the lake up to 100 meters offshore. Lake Malawi National Park is located in the South of the lake near Cape Maclear. You can spend your day’s scuba diving, kayaking, snorkelling, sailing, hiking, windsurfing, sunbathing, paddleboarding or exploring the local village where you can partake in a tour or shop in the local craft markets.
