Lodges at the base of the massif serve food, but you must carry your own supplies (and cooking equipment) into the mountains. At Likhubula there’s a small market, but you’re better off getting supplies in Mulanje town, where the Chitakale Trading Centre at the turning for Likhubula has shops, stalls and a small supermarket, or in Blantyre. On the mountain, keep food well under wraps due to baboons and monkeys.
