Flying to Every Single Country in Africa

definitely recommending Blantyre (Malawi), Goma (DRC) and Bujumbura (Burundi)!!! Absolutely love those airports! Goma is a gorgeous approach over Lake Kivu, Bujumbura is in a beautiful valley and Blantyre is a great approach alongside some mountains

I actually have been there once with the Brussels Airlines A330! Still consider it as one of my top 3 scenic airports! Gonna try to check the other ones out as well! If we just had more African liveries to fly into all of those airports…

Route: Beira (FQBR) - Blantyre (FWCL)

@Ernie you were right about Blantyre, that approach was so amazing!


Malawi, despite having a fifth of its area as water, is a landlocked country in southeastern Africa, defined by its topography of highlands split by the Great Rift Valley and enormous Lake Malawi. The nation is home to the great Lake Malawi National Park, inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1984. The park is home to over 1000 species of cichlid with the vast majority being endemic. The lake is said to provide the best freshwater diving in Africa, let alone the world. Malawi means “fire flames”, the nation takes its name from the reflection of the rising sun on the waters of the vast Lake Malawi. The country is also affectionately known as “The Warm Heart of Africa” due to the kind and hospitable nature of its inhabitants. According to the WEF, Malawi ranks safer than many countries across the globe, surpassing even England and the USA, despite being the 4th poorest country in Africa.

Burundi, a landlocked country that borders Tanzania, Rwanda, and DR Congo, is located in the Great Lakes region of Central and East Africa. Hutu people settle in the region, followed by Tutsi settlers who arrived in the 1400s. During the 1500s a defined Burundian kingdom emerged known as Urundi. Unlike many sub-Saharan African countries, the borders of Burundi were not created by European powers. Instead, they were conceived by the original Burundian monarchy. The nation has two official capital cities, with Gitega being the political capital of the country and Bujumbura being economic capital. Burundi is sometimes called “the country of drums”. Drums are sacred in Burundi, and represent the mwami, fertility and regeneration.
