People, food and culture
The people of Malawi are of Bantu origin and comprise of many ethnic groups such as the predominant Chewa and Yao tribes, the Tumbuka in the north, and the Maravi and Nyanja. Most tribes believe in the existence of spirits and witch doctors perform traditional ceremonies involving local dances. Malawians are also known for their wood carving and pottery skills contributing to thriving exports. Some of Africa’s most delicious food is found here. The staple food Nsima is the base of several other dishes. Made from ground white maize flour, this dish is pan fried and then made into patties served in a variety of flavors. The Nsima is generally eaten with the Chambo, a fish indigenous to Malawi. Lake Malawi is the ninth largest in the world, and the landscape is dotted with several smaller water bodies; fish is thus an essential element of the diet. Finally, don’t forget to sample the various types of Beer found here - Mawehu and Chibuku are just a few that are made from the staple fermented maize!
It is not unusual in Malawi for one to see a 12-seater bus transporting 25 people, along with goats, chicken, and baskets of vegetables!
