A Little More about Lilongwe
Time in Lilongwe is usually a necessity rather than a choice, but with at least one superb boutique hotel, it doesn’t have to feel like a chore. The city is sprawling and seemingly centre-less, but it is interspersed with greenery and has a ramshackle charm to it. There are few activities to take advantage of, but it is still a convenient hub for accessing a number of Malawi’s national parks, as well as the vast lake.
