Accommodation for your climb of Mount Mulanje and Zomba

Zomba and Mount Mulanje lodges and accommodation.

Two spectacular mountain destinations in Malawi, less than 100km apart, offering world-class eco accommodation in pristine landscapes of plateaus, cliffs, valleys and rivers, waterfalls and wildlife – these are the Mulanje Massif and Zomba Plateau regions! Voyage2Africa shows you where to go, what to do, which holiday packages are the best for suitable accommodation and why you should choose mountain lodges in Malawi.

Start with the regal Huntingdon House within the lush Satemwa Tea Estate outside Blantyre, an elegant, colonial-style homestead set in magnificent gardens under lovely old trees featuring breathtaking views of Mount Mulanje and the Lower Shire Valley.

Take the full day to explore the estate and its magical setting – a tour of the tea factory, a visit to Mount Mulanje Massif or a short hike to Dziwe la Nkhalamba rock pool and falls. The Zomba Plateau is 74 km from Mount Mulanje and both peaks occur in central Africa featuring extraordinary rock faces, rare trees and old forests, some of the most challenging climbing routes in the world and some of the most scenic hikes in Africa.

We love Zomba Forest Lodge, an eco-lodge with a green heart, completely off the grid, attracting those who need a break from technology and want to tune into nature’s real world with many hikes, birding and huge forest and mountain views to fill your lens.
