Why Lilongwe?

Sprawling, vibrant & bustling with commerce, Malawi’s capital may lack Blantyre’s charm but soon grows on visitors.

Experience Most visitors to Malawi come to see beautiful Lake Malawi, the game-rich Liwonde National Park & the scenic Majete Wildlife Reserve - Lilongwe's must-visit places.

Lilongwe is an ideal overnight destination for guests wishing to recover from jet lag before embarking on a Malawi safari or for those who need to stay over to catch a connecting flight the following day.

Accommodation for tourists is usually found in leafy neighbourhoods – a lovely haven, away from the hustle & bustle of city life.

Activities Lilongwe is home to a small wildlife sanctuary – the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre – that is set in a stunning 180-hectare nature reserve. It is renowned as one of the best wildlife sanctuaries in Africa & is home to around 200 rescued animals at any one time.

Guests can also dine at one of Lilongwe’s top restaurants or shop at a local market – an interesting, cultural experience.

When To Travel The best time to explore Lilongwe, Malawi is during the dry season, from May to October, peaking in the cooler winter months of June & July. This also coincides with the Malawi safari season & it is also the best time to visit Lake Malawi.

The rainy season runs from November to April, when conditions are hot and humid.
