The Lonely Planet Travel Guide Company has ranked Malawi as one of the world’s Top Ten Friendliest Countries! Along with countries like Ireland, the USA, and Vietnam, Malawi is the only African country to make the list.
Malawians describe themselves as ‘the friendliest people in Africa’, living in the ‘warm heart of the continent’. Anyone who’s visited will know that the rare (for Africa) cohesion of the country’s ethnic groups is solid evidence for this, as is the people’s propensity to welcome you into their homes as well as their nation. Malawi is small, poor and without a lot of facilities, but with a greeting like that who needs Western-style comfort?
Of course, we already knew that Malawi is one of the friendliest places on Earth. And here are some more lists I would add Malawi to:
