Regions

Err. Lake Malawi is the main destination for most travellers to Malawi, and thus makes a pretty good region despite the usual bodies of water rule. Jpatokal 01:24, 9 June 2007 (EDT)

I was more concerned about its length (e.g. Monkey Bay being so far from Karonga). But how about:
  • Upper Malawi (the parts of the Northern and Central regions uphill from the lake)
  • Lake Nyasa/Malawi (and which should we call it?)
  • Southern Malawi —The preceding unsigned comment was added by TVerBeek (talkcontribs)

I don't think the lake makes such a good region, since it takes up so much of the country and because of the country's shape... and because the lake destination are so spread out and are the main places people go... it's the same situation as Goa, where "beaches" or "the coast" make a lame region... all of the destinations of note would all be on the same page pretty much Which is fine if they're near each other, but in Malawi's case they're very spread out. Personally I think North, South and Central are a good division... there will be lake and non-lake destinations in each, and most people visiting Malawi will be traveling north to south or the reverse... if you go to the north, you'll see any non-lake and lake destinations at the same time, making sense to have them in the same region... you wouldn't visit all the "lake destinations" first, and then backtrack all over the place to visit other regions. – cacahuate talk 01:32, 10 June 2007 (EDT)

Here's a map that already has it split into North/Central/South... the divisions here aren't terrible... – cacahuate talk 01:37, 10 June 2007 (EDT)
Those are administrative divisions, which aren't binding on us. But yeah, I didn't just make them up. :) - Todd VerBeek 09:55, 10 June 2007 (EDT)
