Malawi is a small, landlocked country in East Central Africa. Malawi has been in the news recently since Madonna (the pop icon) has adopted a child from the country and pledged money to help build an orphanage for AIDS victims.

But Malawi is more than just a country riddled with poverty and disease. I lived in Malawi for 11 years and it's probably the friendliest country you'll ever visit. Malawi is also beautiful and a wonderful place to take a vacation. The huge Lake Malawi is a haven for tropical fish; the snorkeling is incredible as are the beaches. There are several excellent wildlife reserves where you can see plenty of elephant, hippo, leopard, rhino, buffalo, giraffe and much more. Malawi is also one of the best birding destinations in the world.

Browse through this photo gallery and see for yourself that the "Warm Heart of Africa" is much more than a country struggling with poverty and AIDS. Better yet, plan your next vacation there and help the local economy.
