2018 promises to be a fantastic year for Malawi! The country’s amazing conservation projects hit the headlines in 2017 and it’s now being widely lauded as a ‘hot’ destination. Keeping pace with these developments and accolades, Malawi’s lodges are also now making great impressions, with exciting new properties being opened and its existing lodges winning awards and starting to stand out from the crowd across Africa and worldwide.
Two of Malawi’s top lodges, Tongole and Kaya Mawa, led the way at the recent Safari Awards for 2018, claiming wins in no less than 5 of the 16 categories, judged across the whole of Africa. That’s more than any other country bar South Africa. With Nkwichi Lodge (strictly in Mozambique but on the shores of Lake Malawi and very much part of Malawi’s tourism circuit) weighing in with wins on a global scale, taking home two categories at the World Travel Awards, Malawi’s lodges have taken Africa by storm this year!
Perhaps even more exciting, in a country where development has been slow and steady for many years, is that there are now new lodges opening up. Kachenga Bush Camp is a sister property to Tongole and has just opened in the fast emerging Nkhotakota Wilderness Reserve, and in Liwonde National Park (which has just received cheetah and has lions coming in 2018), Kuthengo Camp will soon be opened by renowned safari company Robin Pope Safaris.
As Malawi goes through the most exciting period of tourism development in its history, its visitors can sleep easy knowing that they will have amazing new and award-winning lodges to choose from!
