A short drive from the city centre, on a 650-hectare forest reserve, is a choice of swanky individual thatched chalets (Madonna has stayed here on her controversial visits to Malawi) with beautiful views of nearby Nkhoma Mountain.
This is a working farm, so the food, including fresh vegetables from the farm gardens and delicious homemade yogurts and cheese, is fantastic. There are plenty of nature trails and bird-spotting opportunities, while hyenas, wild pigs and even leopards are occasionally seen.
Just 10 minutes' drive from the centre of Lilongwe, Kumbali Country Lodge is situated on a 650-hectare forest reserve and dairy farm. The lodge has a garden with outdoor pool.

Activities in the surroundings include bird watching, forest walks, visits to the Kumbali Cultural Village and the Permaculture Centre at the Kusamala Institute of Agriculture and Ecology.
