Malawi

Malawi is a very small country located along the western shores of Lake Malawi in southeast Africa. Its landscape is varied and presents four types of terrain: the Great Rift Valley, highlands, mountains and the central plateau.

Lake Malawi is the third biggest lake in Africa. The climate in this country is sub-tropical with a rainy season from November to May -- when the majority of farming activity is done -- and a dry season from June to October.
