Arrive at Blantyre International Airport and catch your 1-hour road transfer to Huntingdon House on the slopes of Thyolo Mountain.

An elegant, colonial-style homestead set in magnificent gardens under lovely old trees features breath-taking 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. You set your own pace – spend hours in your plush suite with its ball and claw bathtubs, and full range of deluxe toiletries. Meet other guests in the cosy lounge beside the blazing log fire. Golfing, tennis, swimming, croquet, bowls and mountain biking!
