Malawi (Bradt Travel Guides)

This is the only standalone guidebook to the self-styled 'Warm Heart of Africa'. Accessible, affordable and tranquil, Malawi is dominated by the scenic splendour of Lake Malawi, running for 500km through the Great Rift Valley. Elsewhere are numerous little-visited mountains, forests, game reserves and rock art sites. This updated covers everything from wildlife viewing and lakeshore idylls to the best lodgings and eateries for all budgets as well as several significant political changes. Important developments include the conversion of Majete Game Reserve to a fenced 'Big Five' reserve with a world class safari camp.

Philip Briggs is a travel writer specialising in Africa. Born in the UK and raised in South Africa, he first backpacked between Nairobi and Cape Town in 1986 and has been travelling the highways and byways of Africa ever since. Published in 1991, his Bradt Guide to South Africa was the first such guidebook to be published internationally after the release of Nelson Mandela. Over the rest of the 1990s, he wrote a series of pioneering Bradt Guides to destinations that were then - and in some cases still are - otherwise practically uncharted by the travel publishing industry. These included the first dedicated guidebooks to Tanzania, Uganda, Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana and Rwanda (co-authored with Janice Booth). Philip has visited more than two dozen African countries in total and written about most of them, whether it be for guidebook publishers or for specialist travel and wildlife magazines including Africa Birds & Birding, Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife, Travel Africa and Wanderlust.
