Mount Mulanje


... is considerable free-standing granite massif which rises sheer from the surrounding plateau of south-east of Malawi.

The areas surrounding the mountains contain some wonderfully scenic and historic tea plantations, which can be very interesting to visit in their own right.

The mountains themselves conceal a hidden world of high altitude grasslands, mysterious hidden valleys and scenic waterfalls. This is superb trekking country and a network of remote huts exists around which a 3 or 4 night trail can be most rewarding.

The Mount Mulanje area is somewhere we enjoy very much ourselves and tend to recommend quite often to guests on extended trips around the country, it really is a very pleasant backwater and a great place in which to gain an appreciation of rural Africa.

The area can be easily accessed by road from the city of Blantyre in around 2 hours. The majority of guests tend to stay for 2 to 3 nights in one lodge, possibly adding another 2 to 3 nights trekking on the mountain.

Lujeri Lodge ... is a particularly characterful house on an old tea plantation, a really nice base from which to explore.

The area is most commonly combined by road with other areas of Malawi including Central Malawi, South Lake, Liwonde and Majete and Lengwe.
