Ecovolunteering in Malawi

Ecovolunteering in Malawi

Malawi is a landlocked country in southeastern Africa. Surrounded by Tanzania, Zambia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique, Malawi touches the Indian Ocean but does not border any sea. Malawi has some large lakes, such as Lake Malawi, near 30 000 km², or Chilwa Lake; and is also crossed by two large rivers (Shire and Rusa). These aquatic environments harbor rare species of fish.

With its mountainous landscapes, lakes and magnificent plateaus; Malawi, home to a particularly rich plant and animal biodiversity, is home to no less than 9 national parks or reserves, where many iconic and highly endangered species live there, such as the wild dog and the white-headed vulture, or the famous BIG 5 (Lion, Leopard, Black and White Rhinoceros, Buffalo and Elephants).

Long denigrated compared to other African countries, Malawi today offers a diversity of landscapes and exceptional flora and fauna to discover!
