Campervan Hire Malawi
Last Update Feb 2023 by RVRentaCampervan Editorial Team
Known as the ‘Warm Heart of Africa’, Malawi is a small country and a great destination for a self-tour. It is home to Africa’s third-largest lake, lush rainforests, mountains, valleys and impressive wildlife, and a campervan is an ideal way to tour around.
Malawi is not as popular with travellers as other African destinations such as Kenya, but its friendly and welcoming locals mixed with its stunning landscapes make it one of the best places for a self-drive tour. There are plenty of campervan hire selections, with campervan travel a popular way to explore the country as public transport is scarce.
