Mulanje Mountain is a huge mountain that is great for hiking and there are plenty of hiking routes to choose from to enjoy this mountain.

  1. Explore Lilongwe

Although a majority of travellers use Lilongwe as a mere stop on their trip, there are a couple of great things to do here. You can explore the contrast between the old and the new towns, visit the walled market or you can go to the Lilongwe Wildlife Centre, where you get to see orphaned animals and rehabilitated. It’s not a game-viewing destination but it is worth the stop.
