What to Expect
The vehicle will pick you from gymkhana club  at 9:00am . The 6 hour tour which can be shorter according to your liking will see you drive through the beautiful scenery of Zomba mountain to the plateau. The roads' twisting climb with heart stopping drops to the side, the slopes display a wildly delightful exuberant mixture of indigenous trees,wild flowers, flowering shrubs and aloes. The air is clear and pure carrying the scent of pines and aromatic herbs.Vendors on the roadside offer a selection of fruit gathered from the wild and the potatoes for which the mountain is renowned.On the way you can stop to take pictures of the beautiful view of Lake chirwa and zomba city. You can also take pictures at a distance of the famous Mulanje Mountain which is the highest mountain in tropical southern Africa.

Sunbird Ku Chawe Inn offers excellent accommodation and catering services where you can choose from their menu for lunch. The rooms open fires in the bedrooms to maintain te coziness during the cold nights of the mountain's cool season.Whilst the weather may vary with the seasons, the food is always a hit with a wide selection of international and local dishes. The tour will ensure you visit all attractions at the plateau which include Mulunguzi dam, Williams falls, Ku chawe inn, emperors view, chigwe's hole, the trout farm and many more.

There are alternative accommodation units that can meet your budgets and upon request we can book for you.
