Book Appointment 

Zomba is a lovely city at the foot of the massive Zomba Plateau. It used to be the capital, so the town has everything a traveller needs; banks with ATMs, an immigration office to extend you visa, a post office, supermarkets, 2nd hand clothes shops and one of the biggest markets in Malawi.

From Zomba you travel to Mount Mulanje in a couple of hours, Liwonde national park with the big five is 1 hour drive away and the great beaches with thousands of colourful fish (chiclids) in the water and stunning sunsets in Cape Maclear is just 3 hours driving. Only 1,5 hours from Blantyre’s Chileka Airport, Zomba is a great place for your first nights in the country. Zomba has the typical chaos of a dusty market town, but the higher you climb towards the Zomba Plateau, the more stunning and pristine the scenery becomes. Zomba Plateau has forest trails, waterfalls and sweeping views over the surrounding plains.

The plateau rises up 2000m above sea level and it offers a good spot for hiking, walking, riding and bird watching. It has the oldest forest reserve in Malawi and houses a large dam. Zomba is known as fruit capital of Malawi. On the mountain you’ll find berries and more.
