Welcome to verdant expanses and breathtaking mountain views! The Shire Highlands in Malawi boast of rolling green tea estates that contrast beautifully with the purple jacaranda trees of the region. Mount Mulanje in the distance makes for a gorgeous backdrop to this plateau, which is one of the agricultural hotspots of Malawi. For the leisure traveler the region has much to offer – you can enjoy lovely walks through the large tea plantations or in the rainforest, go on coffee or tea tasting excursions, ride a horse into the beautiful surrounding areas, explore various trails on mountain or quad bikes, go bird-watching, or even experience microlight flights!
