Malawi is considered a high risk location in relation to transportation. The roads are often in bad condition, vehicles are often over-loaded and poorly maintained, and driving skills are often lacking leading to highly hazardous driving conditions. This is further exacerbated by people regularly driving at night without lights, and recent reports of carjackings increasing, and in 2021 a UK Citizen was kidnapped from their Vehicle.
Crime in Lilongwe and Malawi is considered medium to low risk, and normal precautions should be taken.
