WHAT ARE THE HIGHLIGHTS OF VISITING MALAWI IN JULY?

  • Diving, snorkelling, kayaking… if you enjoy watersports, this is a great time to be by the lake – and it’s super for sunbathing too
  • There are hardly any mosquitoes to avoid
  • If you’re interested in a bush-and-beach break, July is perfect for combining a lake holiday with a Zambia safari, the latter featuring clear skies, fantastic wildlife sightings (especially big cats!), and some of the best walking safaris.

  • The enticing conditions attract a lot of other travellers, which won’t appeal to anyone seeking complete solitude by the lake (try April/May, perhaps).
