Malawi

Karonga. Mufwa Lodge and Camping. GPS S09 56.218’ E033 56.667’. Signed at the turning off the main road. Basic facilities only!

Livingstonia. Lukwe Camp (may also be known as ‘Eco Camp’). GPS S10 35.139’ E034 07.671’. Signed at the turn off from the main track up the escarpment towards Livingstonia and beyond the turn off for The Mushroom which seemed to cater only for ground tents. Lovely location, good ‘eco’ facilities: h&c water with shower and composting loo, great restaurant and very helpful staff.

Nyika NP. Chelinda Campsite. GPS S10 35.085’ E033 47.944’.
About 3 hrs from Rumphi; a scenic piste with patches of bad corrugation, it deteriorates once inside the NP but the attractive scenery remains. Go to the park HQ at Chelinda first; if you can, arrive early enough to allow a campsite attendant to be found. The hutted accommodation and the campsite are due to be taken over from NP management by a well regarded safari company, so the poor state of the campsite and its facilities will become a thing of the past. The basic and badly maintained facilities are made up for by the location.

Chintheche. Chintheche Inn. GPS S11 52.983’ E034 10.105’.
The sketch map in the Bradt guide will lead you to believe that there is a road running alongside the beach, there isn’t! Stay on the main road, the turn off to the Inn is signed. A great place to relax, peaceful but perhaps less so at a weekend. Good facilities with h&c water, showers, kitchen sinks and electricity hook up and a good bar and restaurant. A little pricey but we felt it was very much worth it.

Lilongwe. Sanctuary lodge. GPS S13 58.134’ E033 47.167’. Not signed until you reach the turn off from Youth Drive. Good facilities with h&c water, showers, kitchen sink, electricity hook up and the main lodge building has a good restaurant and bar with wifi. Pricey, but a tranquil location and well placed for embassies (most walking distance) and trips into town.
