If you are staying in Blantyre, Malawi’s financial and commercial centre and second largest city, the 3 000m-high Mount Mulanje is easily accessible.
Drive around the entire foot of the mountain in a day, or go camping or climbing on the slopes. A must for hikers, they can choose a gentle walk or a more demanding climb amid gorgeous scenery. Camping equipment and the services of a guide can be hired. There is plenty of wildlife, from the tiny klipspringer antelope, to various other small mammals and a large variety of birds.
