The Mulanje Massif, as it is also known, is located 65km east of Blantyre, rising sharply from the surrounding plains of Chizardzulu, and the tea-growing Mulanje district. It measures approximately 13 x 16 miles (22 x 26 kilometres).
Mount Mulanje is Malawi’s answer to Mount Kilimanjaro without the crowds and the high price tag. It towers over 3000m high, locals call it the ‘island in the sky’, and it is easy to see why – on a misty day the mountain is enclosed in a smoke-like haze, and its highest peak, Sapitwa, bursts through the cloud.
Through our trusted service provider we can arrange anything from a short one day walk to a 5 night hike up and down the mountain with a visit to the range’s highest peak, Sapitwa.
Included in these tours are all meals, accommodation in mountain huts, park entry, guide fees, mountain cook, porters (1 per 2 clients) and admin porters as required (for food, catering utensils, etc.). These guides are highly experienced and know the mountain and all her trails like the back of their hands; they have a high focus on health and safety, and of course a well rounded enjoyable experience.
