Abstract
Malawi is a landlocked country situated in the eastern section of South Tropical Africa. This relatively small country has a rich mosaic of habitats owing to the varied topography, altitudinal ranges and rainfall found in different areas. Malawi harbours at least 21 different aloes, three of which are endemic to the country. Aloes in Malawi are severely threatened by habitat destruction and many species are in dire need of conservation. A key to the aloes of Malawi is provided, as well as a description, illustration, distribution map and information on habitat, flowering time, and conservation status for each of the species.
