Ive been up several parts of this mountain with different groups and its a nice relaxing walk, non technical. The huts are well spaced apart and the caretakers are friendly. The mission station is a must for organizing things, they are so nice and sorted me out with large and small groups alike. Good basecamp spot if you are planning... More

One of the most beautiful things you can see in Malawi. We went for a 2-day trip with my girlfriend and our guide Juma Tebulo (jumatebulo@gmail.com / +265 88 546 40). Incredibly nice man who knows the mountain like his own pocket. Fair price and excellent info and guiding. Can't recommend him and the people at infoMulanje strongly enough! The... More

Opted for a two-day/one night fully catered hiking trip - walked with a guide, enjoyed amazing views and, after a wonderful, candle-lit meal, spent the night in a mountain hut.

I took a short walk from the ranger centre up to the old man's falls, about 90 mins each way. Fairly easy. You don't need a guide but I used one, at 3000 Kawacha I though it was good value and you get an insight into the area; plus it outs a bit of cash into the economy.

I hike often in Colorado USA and have backpacked throughout different parts of the world and the 3 day 2 night hut hike at Mulanje is on my list of top 10 hikes of my life. Gorgeous scenery, just gorgeous! It is really hard if you go to the summit - I was sore for days (and I am in... More

Its such an amazing place for either hiking or relaxing. I stayed in CCAP accommodation and staff were very friendly and welcoming, the only annoying thing is the young men that will not leave you alone and try to convince you to take them as a guide.

I spent one night in Chisepo Hut and summited Sapitwa - this seems to be the most popular activity here. But I wish I had a week to spare! There are many huts and possible treks throughout the Mulanje wilderness area. There is a lot of good advice among the other reviews here so I will just contribute this: I... More

We hiked to Sapitwa (tallest peak) and back for the last 3 days of our 2 week trip to Malawi. It was absolutely amazing! I am not sure exactly which trail we took, but our guide told asked if we wanted harder but shorter or easier but longer. We took harder but shorter. This was Likhubula to Chisepo. Being someone...

Getting started: we started quite late, by leaving Blantyre at 0830, arriving at Chitenkale at around 1200. You can get there earlier by taking a direct minibus that does not pass through Thyolo (as we found out later). Luckily you can get guides and porters from Chitenkale (suburb of Mulanje town). Guides - 25 USD per day Porter - 20... More
