Lake Niassa

Lake Niassa is the 9th largest freshwater lake in the world, the third largest in Africa and one of the world’s most bio-diverse. Though utterly stunning it is still only visited by a handful of tourists heading to Malawi with the lake forming the border between the two countries. It has been declared a reserve and Ramsar site, protecting its abundant species and natural habitats.

The beaches are beautiful here and nowhere else in the world can you enjoy such a feeling of serenity. The waters are picture post-card blue and could be confused with the Indian Ocean, and this is an exclusive destination off the beaten trails. Though navigated for centuries by indigenous people in dugout canoes, slave traders and missionaries on steamboats and dhows, the lake still contains a lot to be explored.
