Excellent service and a good cup of coffee followed by an interesting walk through the park. We saw lots of animals and enjoyed the tour guide's information. Low key and relaxing—recommended for all including kids.

We had our corporate team event organized here and it was a great experience with traditional performers, lip smacking food and nice ambiance.

Not surprised that Pop stars come to this place. Embassies chose to have their functions here as well. Reason is simple. This is Luxury in the serene country side of Lilongwe - Malawi

Delightful premises, a small choice on the menu but high quality food and service.
Much enjoyed; a fair trek along a dirt road but I would say worth it.

Up-town dinning with a real local to.. ouch! you won't believe nothing comparable exists 'till you get there. Rural setting, secure, farm-fresh organic foods. Just a horn-ping-drive out of Lilongwe City Centre. Take me for directions or c u there.

I visited the Kumbali Cultural Village with a group of my American guests who had come to Malawi on an outreach visit. We went out for dinner one special Sunday evening 19th November 2017. I loved the way staff have been trained to welcome visitors and guests. They were so organized and extremely knowlegeable of what they were doing. The service was quick and personal.
To add the fun, the Owner walked in and gave us two free bottles of wine for my American guests! That was really special and will be cherished by all of us for many years to come. This is a place not to miss when you are in the Capital City of Lilongwe. You are assured to "Chill-lax" chill and relax in the gardens of the Kumbali Village. The ambience and collection of art and paintings is just breath taking. I recommend this place to all guests and visitors in Lilongwe. For your own information, I am a Zambian national with Malawian roots (parents) and now living in Durban South Africa. Enjoy it just like we did that special Sunday night.

The cultural village is closed, they only have the lodge that caters to events. They still mention the village on their website, so we wasted about 30-60' of our precious time getting there and away, missing our next tour.

This place is oriented towards the occasional visits by VIPs and seems to have zero interest in serving others. The narrow dirt road leading to and ending in the village is closed just in front the village without any signs upfront when the village is closed for private functions (often for many days in a row) so better call before heading there. Disappointing and uexperience.

The lodge is quiet and out of town and I really like it on the weekends if you're working in the city but looking to get away a bit. It's kind of far if you are working in town, but a good relaxing spot.

The staff is lovely and the owners always have some beautiful Rhodesian Ridgebacks walking around. I recommend that you go for a walk on some of the paths nearby the river, there are typically some of the local children playing there. Also, the local market is good to visit.
