“Good basic accommodation”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on November 25, 2018

Stayed here recently for a week. Overall very good with the exception of a disco night with loud music to the wee small hours. Owners on site and staff very helpful and friendly. Basic good food...


“Not a good place to be ”

Rating: 1 Reviewed on November 21, 2018

Our stay at the Pakachere was strange. The place is advertised with WiFi, but of course, it doesn't work. And we are pretty sure it won't work when you stay there. No wifi in Malawi isn't an issue...


“Under The Tree”

Rating: 5 Reviewed on November 11, 2018

Zomba is a lush paradise, for all its colonial capital status a far cry from Malawi's somewhat grim - more grubby bland boring than anything proper dangerous - urban centres of Lilongwe...
