Due to lower population density, Northern Region remains one of the more unspoiled parts of the country--it's also home to the nation's largest national park, sheltering large herds of antelopes and bush-game. Many Northern Region vacations start at Viphya Highlands, a smooth, wave-like plateau surrounded by picturesque mountain ranges at the edge of the Great Rift Valley. In addition to taking advantage of Lake Malawi beaches, popular things to do in Northern Region include visiting archaeological centers which display skeletal segments of the Malawisaurus dinosaur, examining missionary-built cathedrals, going on horse riding safaris, and trekking. Northern Region is in Malawi. Plan your holiday in Northern Region and other destinations, from the rural, to the urban, and everything in between, using our Malawi trip itinerary planning app.
