InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Blantyre

Hello to all Americans in Blantyre! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Blantyre? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Blantyre which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Blantyre is an underrated city with the potential to surprise you. The capital of Malawi’s Southern Region is a historic city known for its culture, music, impressive architecture, and much more! With the compact city layout, available minibuses, and good road links, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in Sunnyside or Namiwawa, for example, which are a short drive away from Blantyre’s center.

Although Blantyre has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Blantyre, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
