Malawi (Bradt Travel Guide) - ISBN 184162313XTravel Guides Malawi / Books / Magazines

Malawi (Bradt Travel Guide)   -   Philip Briggs (Author)
There's more to Malawi than its lake. This fifth edition of the Bradt guide explores the country's rolling plateaux and massifs and its five national parks and four game reserves. Adventurers, meanwhile, can discover how to kayak off Cape Maclear, hike up Mount Mulanje or cross the wildlife-rich Nyika Plateau on horseback. The book covers the country's dynamic music scene and uncovers little-visited gems such as Dedza and Elephant Marsh. And if visitors must find a luxury lodge on Lake Malawi's palm-fringed shore on whose deck to sip their sundowners – well, this book tells them how to pull that off, too. An invaluable guide for visitors to this most explorable, affordable and tranquil of African countries, whose low-key charm most visitors find thoroughly addictive , Bradt's Malawi provides readers with advice on planning their itinerary, wildlife and bird species identification, conservation areas, national parks and a detailed history of the country. Philip Briggs has written and co-authored ten Bradt travel guides and has contributed to numerous other books, travel and wildlife magazines.

History of Malawi

Independence: 6 July 1964 (from UK)

Throughout the 16th to the 19th century, the Africans told Arab and Portuguese traders of one of exceptional beauty but, being off the trade routes, it was never "discovered"... 

   …until on New Year's Day, 1859, a Scottish explorer, David Livingstone, turned the bow of his boat, the Ma -Roberts to the north. Steaming, out of the mighty Zambezi River, from what is now Mozambique and into the Shire River, he thus changed the course of history for a small mysterious part of Africa once called...   Maravi.
