Malawi SVG Map

This is a simple React Component that renders an SVG Map of Malawi and allows you to click on the various districts. You may pass an onClick Callback which will be returned with a List of all the Maps Districts that have been selected. With the District List, you may execute any logic in your application such as query an API with the selected district as a Parameter.

This is available as an NPM Package. You may search for malawi-react-map on the NPM Website and follow instructions there.


Once installed, below is a typical usage of the Package:

import React from "react";
import Map from "react-malawi-map";

const MapContainer = () => (
  <div className="mapContainer">
      onClick={districts => console.log(districts)} //Any Valid Callback will do here
      height={300} //Any valid Number
      selectedColor="#0468b1" //Any Valid Color Hex Code
      fill="#9D9D9D" //Any Valid Color Hex Code | optional


  • Tooltip: The Plugin provides a Tooltip with the name of a District when you Hover on it
  • Selected Color: When a District has been Clicked, the color is changed to the selectedColor prop you pass
