Why do you think Malawi is the warm heart of Africa?

I don’t think Malawi is the warm heart of Africa, IT IS the warm heart of Africa. Its people, the wilderness of Malawi. The few things that we have are really more than other countries will have. The few things we have, the few wildlife, the few lake parts, the few rivers, just a few things, that’s what makes Malawi, and the people unique.

Buffalo because buffalos are always being buffalos, tough guys!
