Facing east, Makwawa benefits from the easterly breezes and sitting out on the verandah is a pleasure at any time of day.
The house is basic, a large living room, a kitchen where you can cook or with 3 hours notice you can order food. There are two showers, two toilets, a double bedroom and a dormitory. All beds have mosquito nets.
Outside there are acres of grounds to explore and a campsite. The views from the campsite are superb and hiking is possible up to Zomba plateau and beyond.
