Thawale Lodge Highlights

Thawale Lodge is situated approximately 70km south-west of Blantyre in the beautiful Shire Valley in the Majete Wildlife Reserve. The reserve is easily accessible from Blantyre and the trip will take approximately 1,5 hours. Guests can hire a car in Blantyre; however, a 4x4 vehicle is recommended during the wet season, as the road quality is influenced by the change in weather. Majete Wildlife Reserve has a very diverse vegetation scheme, which allows guests to see the scenery morphing beautifully and allows for superb game viewing all year round. It is now the premier Reserve in Malawi with the BIG 5 which allows visitors the opportunity to get up and close with wildlife.
