About Malawi

The Republic of Malawi (formerly Nyasaland) is a democratic, densely populated country located in southeastern Africa. Often hyped as the “warm heart of Africa,” it is bordered by Zambia to themalawiflag north-west, Tanzania to the north and Mozambique, which surrounds it on the east, south and west. The origin of the name Malawi remains unclear; it is held to be either derived from that of southern tribes, or noting the “glitter of the sun rising across the lake” (as seen in its flag).
