If you like winding roads with a mountain view, then driving up to Nkhoma is definitely something you might want to do. The roads may not have guard rails all throughout but it is wide enough to give you enough berth to twist and turn....More

It is tradition at our school that we take our Gr10-12 students on a hiking trip to Nkhoma mountain every year. It is worth the trip but it is important that you are at least a bit fit. The scenery is awesome.

Not the easiest walk if you want to see the real top; you may need to do some parts on your four. On the way up, there is a small cottage that was closed by the time we were there. Definitely worth the trip up...More

The trails up the mountain may be a little confusing especially during the rain season as most trails are covered up by plants! But once you reach the top of the mountain it's breathtaking

Wonderful views over the incredible Malawian landscape. It took us 1.5 hours to get to the first summit where the guardshouse is (we didn't go to the very top). There are some steep sections. Come and appreciate the beautiful countryside.
