Kokotowa Executive Lodge

Lodge in Mulanje

Popular for conferences, Kokotowa's 12 rooms (with more coming) are basic but clean, spacious and comfortable, with large beds, plentiful furniture and fans. The whole shebang is arranged around a courtyard with bar, restaurant and secure parking. Find it off the M2, on the Blantyre side of the Chitakale junction; follow the sign for the altogether less impressive Chididi Motel.

Executive rooms have TV and air-con but are not really worth the extra outlay.
