    It's a beautiful mountain range to climb. Organised a Hash Day out. Beautiful. To go to the second mountain is challenging

    We visited with ten schoolchildren from the uk and it was a very powerful experience with a great local guide who told us all about the history.

    We spent most of the morning here before setting out for Nyika NP, a long drive away. #Birding was quite good along the small river that flows thru the preserve. We also saw a troop of Vervet monkeys

    The trails in the preserve are well maintained and suitable for children as well as adults.

    This is well worth spending a morning.

    Quick response and reliable service. The drivers were waiting for us at the Lilongwe airport on time as agreed and took us to our hotel.

    Came here with ten schoolkids. Really enjoyed it the lodge, especially the “pools” by the river. Comfortable stay and lovely food.

    Have a look & walk around if you are interested in exploring new things visiting a new country. Could go inside if you get prior permission.

    We found the gardens because we had heard of the excellent prices for plants. We were shocked when we paid ~ $USD40 for 200+plants.
    We walked around a little while there, but it was delightful to see how many people (groups of 10 - 50) were enjoying a picnic or nap under the trees.

    Located next to the Parliament Building. There is a person from the Ministry to give you a tour and background on the late President and the mausoleum. Free but I gave a donation.
