Travel in Malawi is especially safe compared with many other destinations, and most crime is confined to petty theft. Although there are few paved roads, the system of tarmac roads is strategically placed to make travel easy from city to city, traversing beautiful countryside and moving easily through trading centers and past mud-hut African villages that remain captured in time just as they 100 years ago. International flight connections are easily available for flights into Blantyre and Lilongwe daily, and smaller regional and local flights arranged for a number of smaller airports. Read more about travel in Malawi
