Land and Resources
Part of the Great Rift Valley runs through Malawi from north to south. In this deep trough lies Lake Nyasa, the third largest lake in Africa. The Shire River flows from the southern end of the lake to the Zambezi River in Mozambique. To the east and west of the Great Rift Valley the land rises to form high plateaus, generally about 900 to 1200 m (about 3000 to 4000 ft) in elevation but reaching about 2400 m (about 8000 ft) in the Nyika uplands in the north. South of Lake Nyasa lie the Shire Highlands, which rise to more than 2700 m (more than 9000 ft). Sapitwa (Mount Mulanje), central Africa's highest peak at 3002m (9849 ft) is here.
The climate in Malawi varies with the elevation. In the low-lying Shire Valley it is hot and humid, with temperatures averaging from 21°C (69°F) to 29°C (84°F) depending on the season. In the highlands the climate is more equable. The rainy season lasts from November to April. Annual rainfall averages about 2300 mm (about 90 in) in the highlands and about 800 mm (about 30 in) in the lowlands.
