I visited Malawi (aka Malawhy) for four days in November of 2015 for the first time. Unsure what to expect, Malawi delivered loads of rest & relaxation in quiet beach bungalows (an $8 upgrade per night from tent life). We had our "Bad Taste" Party here and had loads of time to ourselves to swim, swap & barter at the tiny markets, and just relax.
